That is one long sentence. I ran out of breath just reading it.

Let's try Steve's sentence with punctuation!

Hey guys!
I just joined the site. I have 2 bikes, a cb550 1983, and my new project: an Interceptor 750, 1984. I ripped off the carbs because fluel was leaking, only to discover that the fuel pipe was missing. I am about ready to re install on the bike, but I would need new o-rings. I'm wondering if anybody knows were to find them beside the dealer, because they come with the pipes and are 30$ Canadian!

Ok Steve, before you blow your top, we kid around on this site, so don't get all bent.

O-Rings can be purchased individually from a number of sources. You need to know the outside diameter (OD), inside diameter (ID), and ring thickness. Search available O-Ring sizes

If you don't have the old o's to work with, then you could order a mixed variety in the approximate size and try to fit one. Or, another route might be to try a salvage yard.

Steve,

One more thing: many auto parts stores and hardware stores have a cabinet full of different sizes of o-rings. You could take your parts in and find a fit that way. I've done it a few times with various gizmos.
