I'd trust one of these quick disconnects over anything on eBay:
Quick Release Metal Fuel Connectors: Ducati 1299/1199 / 899 / 959 Panigale

And they're the same price.

Only thing to add about the procedure is to make sure that when you put the tank back on, the seal under the tank is sealed after you reconnect the fuel line. Otherwise you'll use the ram air effect and will allow a lot of hot, unfiltered air into the engine. Not good.

did you guys have any trouble removing the plastic quick disconnect off the fuel lines?

My fuel lines for the quick disconnects seem like they're hard as a rock and ready to crack if i remove the plastic fittings

Only way is to probably buy some 1/4" rubber tubing and extend your current lines so that they're not too short where every time you pull on it, they pull off.
Thanks for the reply timwu12.
I already have the fuel line disconnect, but it looked too hard to remove the original the plastic one without damaging the fuel line. So i left it...

Hi AntiHero
That's the connector I bought for the fuel line and it feels well made and up for the job.

I am confused about the seal under the tank?? I didn't notice it when taking my tank off and so I probably haven't sealed it when replacing it. Any pointers on what to look for?

Thank.

It's a rubber gasket that sits on top of the airbox:

Anyone else replaced the quick line fuel connect with a metal one listed above.

How easy is it to swap the line side?
