in tank fuel line

I just returned from an Alaska trip from Arkansas last Thursday. On the way up North I had a similar fuel line failure in the middle of Nowhere, Montana. On the side of the road I had the opportunity to totally unload the bike, remove the fuel tank and inside found one of the fuel lines attached to the filter had a hole in it. Because of lack of parts I had to use some redneck engineering and two zip ties to close the hole and make it to a farm store about 15 miles further down the road. At the farm store they had some standard off the roll fuel line I used to make a better repair and get back on my trip. I finished the trip without any further problems.
In this thread is the first time I've heard of "in tank" fuel line. Do I need to order "in tank" line and replace the standard fuel line that I used for the roadside repair.
Not that it matters but my bike is an '04 1150 GS.
