I just bought some basic vacuum hose at O'Reilly's. I couldn't match the exact size, the new hose is a little smaller and tighter but fits and works fine - at least so far. If it's all stock you may have luck at Partzilla. I had done the pair valve mod so eliminated some of the stock hose.

You should be able to get it at any parts house, auto or motorcycle, 3.5 mm equals 9/64. You have the old petcock off the bike, take it with you and get what fits. I think I bought 7/64 because 9/64 wasn't available at the time, but fits tight and works, I suspect 11/64 would work too. Your only looking at a couple of $$

As others have said, buy the size you need by the foot from any chain autoparts store. I am unaware of any longer lasting type of hose. Think about it this way. How old is your bike? The original hoses lasted this long. The next set should also.
