    They look like OEM Ducati Corse fuel fittings that screw in. I borrowed a pair of original units from Mark T and made a few reproduction fittings a few years ago but don't remember who I sold them to (on this Forum) or how many I made.

    You seem to be missing the female quick disconnects.

    I have a set, very nice pieces indeed. Finally fitted them a couple of weeks ago. What do you want to know? Yes they unscrew. M20 thread. Both have identical male fittings. Pressure side is straight through. Return has reversion/check valve in it. Fitting the hose clamp on the pressure side is a bastard of an idea and patience is required. Just a zip tie on the return hose will do. I used loctite master pipe seal on the threads.

    Just couple of other tank related things. I put thermo tec adhesives heat shielding on the underside, and it’s a good idea to use 888 mounts down towards the quick disconnect fittings. Apparently the rear mount had a tendency to fail, so support is a good idea. I just used a good quality silastic to hold them on the frame rails and a Teflon rubbing strip on the tank. I used a couple of DNA conical air filters with the 3 piece air box. A little modification on the rear one with I silasticed in place. I made PVC snap rings to go around the velocity stacks. Move your air temp sensor to the front sub frame, saves a lot of problems. Odometer reset knob hole is perfect.

    Ps. There was a C/F tank on eBay recently Aus$2500, filler neck seals on eBay now, but rubber grease brings up an old hard one nicely. Fuel pumps are pretty much a car one available at repco, super cheap auto etc. I used an MX 5 type one and added a plug on the wires.
    They did rupture on impact, so the simple solution is don’t crash.

    CPC plastic connectors are needed to attach fuel hose to CF tank fittings.

    Iíve used RS Components in the UK to supply those parts before
