I forgot how much I hate the factory disconnect. actually, the disconnect is ok, the hose is too short, I guess Ma Kaw couldn't afford to put another inch of hose in there to make enough space so I can get a hand on it. those that have been in there know what I mean. I had a strong urge to cut the ends off and install them on a longer hose. or splice a piece in... but I didn't. yet. so... if you modified yours, what did you do?
