I have a 97 Electra Glide Classic. Today I noticed a gas leak. It's right at the coupling below the hex nut that goes in the tank. Does th entire fuel injection line need to be replaced or can I just replace the o'ring. I've researched were people have just replace the o'ring.

Here is a youtube video that I saw saying you can just replace the o'ring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Owzb-MVqkM

If the entire line need to be replace would I be able to just replace the part coming out of the gas tank with this (Spectre 5946 Fuel Fitting Fuel Fitting 90 Degree (Chrome) 3/8" NPT to 3/8" Barb, Spectre Limited Lifetime warranty - JCWhitney) and then connect the current injection line hose with some new hose?

Any help would be great

That 90 degree elbow wouldn't work. The line has to have one way pressure. Without it, the fuel pressure would always be working against your pump.
