You may find a universal set on eBay perhaps. What size do you need?

Use brake bleeding nipples, cut to length needed.

I'm guessing they should be M6.

I did make a couple by drilling through some studs.

I got my carb balancing kit from Morgan carb tune in order to balance the delorto carbs on my Laverda. They supply two different sizes of plastic insert ( now in brass it seems) to which the rubber tubes are connected. 


Does this help you at all ?

Just found the ones I made. I no longer need them so if they are any use to you, let me have your address and I'll pop them in the post.

These are great.  

I have the brass fittings permanently installed on my Ducatis as access is tricky (nigh on impossible on the rear cyl of the 916 without serious dismantling) plus they're not visible as with the Guzzi - just fit a 'plug' or even a length of hose with a bung and they can stay connected.

For the Guzzi I fit/remove to use the Carbtune, Morgan supply both 5 & 6mm in the kit.

This kind of thing - I've searched for these before so thought there should be ...


... or Google "m6 vacuum hose connector nipple"
