Default Fuel Leak Rear dry break

folks,
this morning i came out to the smell of gas and dripping fuel from the warrior. I got remove the tank and found a tear in the rear fuel line (coming from back of tank) to the 90* dry break under the seat.
What is the best replacement option. Do i order factory from partzilla or is an aftermarket flex hose AN type the better way to go?

pictures attached.

Pull the old one off..
Maybe a local Auto parts store might have some
And they can probably help u determine what dimensions of line u need..

That what I would do.

That might have been a fuel leak causing you poor gas mileage.

That is not a pressurized line it's a vent to the top tank but imo still use the same hose, and the crimp clamps too because they are a signal to shops and others to not frak with that connection and plus they are small and maintenance free. Take the hose and clamp to the part store. Count how many clamps you need and get a spare. There is a crimp tool. I use an old blunt ceramic tile nipper for these smaller crimp clamps. Study how they appear installed before you uninstall the clamps.
