So I'm reading I'm not the only lucky one with a snapped gas tank tube....
I was changing my plugs\filter on a newly acquired Versys, ran out of time and did not finish the job. Came back the next day to find my gas tank (that I oh-so-carefully secured the previous night) dangling on wires. The brittle plastic tube broke pretty close to its neck on the tank side.
So, what do people do in thess cases (short of forking over gazillion $$$ for a new pump) - did you replace the plastic tube completely with some machined aluminum tube, did you find some thin insert to go into the plastic tube and epoxy what is left of these broken tube OVER that insert OR did you use something OVER the epoxied pieces - some sort of a tube just to keep it safe? Should I be concerned with epoxy getting in contact with gas?
Now there might be a homeade fix, but when it comes to the fuel system on a bike i'm sceptical to use a rigged up part. Here is the fiche for the pump, If its the part i'm thinking of then its about $63. Could be worth it in peace of mind to replace it. I know i would, but order it from your dealer ron ayers is expensive on shipping.
Don't have a pic at the moment - will post it up later. I've already looked at the diagram - unfortunately it's the pump that needs to be replaced as a whole assembly at @ $190 my cost. I wish I could just replace that $50 "tube-assembly" and be done with it.
