Check with your local hardware store and auto parts store... they usually have a large selection of grommets and you may be able to find something close enough to make it work....

You may need to modify the hole in the frame to size it to the grommet.....
Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I still cant find anything yet at the stores, but I have an idea, which is to use a small round file to file off the sharp edges of the hole heading to the Muffler side and double up some tubing over the original tubing to protect it were it goes through the grommet hole, wonder if it would do the job.

You could add some heat shrink tubing to the line.60% of the time, it works every time!

Not a bad idea but he sure to use larger ID. Fuel tubing so as to not “pinch” the pressure line .....

Just drill it out to fit a current size. I have inquire too and Align only sell it with the frame which I think is terrible.

Use nylon braid sleeve to protect the fuel tubing. It works for me.

just add a little silicone sealant to the frame once the tube is fitted
and then there's no need for the grommet
