just use a small length of 10mm hose, and a reducer to 6mm ?

Pretty sure that the size will be 5/16" (could be wrong). Amal do 5/16" sized banjo fittings for the carbs.

5/16 equates to 7.9 or 8 mm, most decent rated fuel pipe at 8 mm. for unleaded should stretch out to a 10 mm barb I'd have thought. The old hot water trick?

Definitely 3/8" & single banjos on the carbs, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to fit doubles, with a balance pipe between the carbs. I guess 5/16" hose would stretch to fit when warmed up.

If you are going to run a single tap, run the larger pipe to a T piece with smaller outlets to suit the carbs and get single banjo's for the carbs.
Just a thought.

Two taps Andy. Just replacing the leaking one but can't find a direct replacement, so have gone up a size to something more easily available.
