3800 Mile Service...

It was going great until I needed to put the gas tank back on...then I noticed the plastic 90 degree fuel tank connector on the bottom of the tank was cracked. I was super careful then the wife comes out...

So I drained the tank and now it sits until I figure out how to get it fixed. I did notice some fixes for the fuel tank connector on the previous model year and was wondering if that would work?

So looking in the service manual I'm a tad confused on the fuel pump O ring. I only have one O ring and I put it in position 1 (the notch) and fuel leaks. I put in position 2 and same thing. Am I supposed to have two O rings? The parts breakdown doesn't help spell it out for me either. I've inspected the O ring also and it looks good...

Wink CPC metal fittings?

Donsy and Mitch they won't help him, he has a '10 bike with a single red John Guest fitting on the bottom

and it has 3 hose fittings in the pump plate the old bikes had 2

Timber29;

you need to remove the cannister, if you have it (since i don't know where you are) and wye the drain/vent lines together INSIDE the tank

make them ~20cm/8" longer than stock.....then you can change the fuel filter without disconnecting the vent/drain lines

epoxy 2 of fuel pump plate fittings closed.....that way you only need to remove 1 clamp the remove the fuel pump completely

the plastic tank MVs use 2 of the big O-rings .....my '08 910R came with only 1
but didn't leak

lucky me

Yes, I have a Walkman (canister) in my fuel tank also since I’m a California resident. So how in the wide world of sports do I only have one O ring in my tank (the green one)? Also how the #[email protected]! Do you get the red fitting off at the bottom of the tank?

That fitting does not separate from the pump housing.I did a search for you and MV sells the complete assembly for around $900.00.I found a post where a bike shop did a conversion and fixed a John Guest male elbow into the pump housing.Hopefully another member has a quicker solution for you.Name:  61427.jpg
