Noel the Triumph connectors are the same, they are avalable on Fleabay sometimes or from Tom Parker Hydraulics at

They were a recall on the 995i models and I replaced them on the F4 the first time the tank came off. Those fittings you quote are very cheap compared to ripoff Britain, even in a bag of 10! I also replaced the female coupling but it can be a pig as the plastic shatters and you may need to recut the threads in the fuel pump mounting plate.

it would be fantastic if we can get the fitting which connects the fuel rail to the fuel line. Wishful thinking.

bigfeesh;
i know about the Triumph ones, same thing. watch out for the ebay ones from Hong Kong.....

i called the company that makes them and asked for a distributor outside of California's ~10% sales tax....not paying the sales tax easily covers the shipping

the price is low because its from a distributor, 1 step from the manufacturer.....but thats why you have to but 10 at a time

minime;
haven't heard of any failures on those so i haven't looked for them

Yeah, they are the UK distributers for CPC products..


If anyone is up for it, I'm in for 4x male and 4x female connectors..

We only need to get 6 more connectors of each sold and then we have enough for a group buy from the US distributor..

Hi all,

This could be a big help as I have purchased from these guys in the past for Triumphs.

This Link shows 3 different sets, male & female. I can't tell what the differences are except for a clip from the pics. I took a punt today & ordered the TTFKD-1 for my 910s Brutale.

Hope this helps out with replacing male & female couplings on the MV's

The metal couplers for the tank are part # MCD1004 (1/4" NPT valved) Retail for about $12 ea USD. The other side, as Noel mentioned is the part # MCD 2304 which retails for about $14 ea. I will call and check his source price on monday.
