Do you mean you can't undo the bolts?

I don't understand what you're doing.
The fuel line has a banjo fitting at each end, just remove one of the bolts.
The fuel line is high-pressure - if it's damaged you will need to replace it.

Maybe invest in a manual for next time you're working on the bike.

Are you saying that instead of putting a wrench on the fitting, - you somehow wrestled the rubber line off the banjo fitting?

YES!! Jondog that's what happened! Now how do I reseal this thing or is my only option a new one?

It has to hold about double the pressure in your tyres - I don't see any cost-effective way to repair it.

Honestly, that's such a big mistake I don't think your should work on any bike.
Yes, I'm (rarely) a dick here, consider it a dose of tough love.
Save yourself money and frustration and a few F-bombs, and either have a mate help you next time or take it to a shop.

WHAT? not a big mistake there is a hose connected to a pump and the lines have clips on them how would anyone new to honda no that Honda decided to superglue it's hoses??!! Honestly I went to multiple bike shops and a place who deals with hoses and rubber and spare parts shops and all said WTF IS THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE? So next time I'll undo the bolt instead of trying to take the rubber line of like Ya would on ANY OTHER APPLICATION!!!

All modern FI bikes use high-pressure hose.
But the basic rule if you aren't experienced with something - READ THE MANUAL FIRST ;-)
