Does anyone have any idea on the length of these?

Don't know the length but found info in the Mid-USA catalog that says it wont fit mag Sportys, if that matters.

They will fit mag Sporties, if you have enough clearance between them and the grounding lug on the side of the mag.

To be honest, I just need 1/8" NPT swivel lines for a breather bolt project on a Big Sucker 1. If these weren't too long/short, I'd stick them in a tee and add a catch can and be done, not have to make my own lines. Thanks though.

If these are for your 96 Evo?

You may get better responses in the Evo section, or at least some info on anyone that has tried your mod.

I was going to ask there but since it is an iron head part and all I needed was a length, I didn't think it would be an issue. I'm trying to repurpose a $10 part to make something somebody charges $50 for.

it's the ''if'' part.have you done this? the braided lines appear to be,thicker? the grounding lug protrudes approx. 1/2''.

for what matters, go to your local plumbing shop and get a braided line for lavatory, they will handle the heat and since you are venting should be no issues. the plus is if it doesn't mock up, exchange it for diff size.

Because they're billed as fitting an IH, I'll assume they're roughly the correct length. Mine measures roughly 9" from case to rocker box. Add a bit to that for the threaded portion of the fittings, maybe 1/2" per line, and through in a fudge factor for my in-the-dark, bending-over-the bike, measuring with a too-wide-tape-measure measurement. Carry the naughts and I come up with probably 9-1/2" ± from tip to tip. Maybe.

The reason they say not for magneto bikes: There's no way those would work properly on my bike, at least not be installed and look right, because of the mag geometry. Once installed, the mag would be perpetually grounded unless you set the body outboard by a tooth. And that's just whacked...

Thank you, that's exactly what I needed to know. I just want to drill and tap the backing plate , bring them down below the carb and run them into a tee, so anywhere between 8" and 12" will work, I was hoping these weren't too short.
