Hello all,

Performing my first tune up on my Ex and have a question to only one problem i had. How do i get the fuel lines off of the filter?? Is there a special tool? or is it just twist and pull?? from what i can see, it looks like one of those spring loaded things. thanks in advance.

yes there is a special tool... it goes around the line on the fuel filter, but below the actual fuel line itself.
