Removing the Gas tank from an old Honda can be a real pain because of the balance tube. Here is a simple solution you can easily do to your bike and never have the problem again.
You could end up with fuel in the non petcock side that you can’t access, but wouldn’t the reserve still work?Since my disconnect broke this has been my set up. The problem seems to be your petcock a reserve function is void. =one day won't start as you try sloshing enough gas to fill the carbs or lots of stops at the gas station to make sure you don't have that problem. The factory way is best imo.
I think while your riding, enough might get sloshed over to keep the floats satisfied for awhile. Idk, they'll be a point where you'll have issues I suspect. Could even cause a dangerous lean condition I'd think.You could end up with fuel in the non petcock side that you can’t access, but wouldn’t the reserve still work?
I tried the leak free connector in the middle of this hose... it leaked!
I went back to the old way, but it is messy and a PITA to get connected.
