Mine is the wrong way isn't it



Definitely the wrong way round, Jonny mate. Not just that hose though. Looks like the whole assembly is backwards. The fuel return hose with the L shaped pipe should be to the front of the bike. The banjo bolt etc should be to the back of the bike with the main fuel hose running forwards and straight (no longer bent around).

Hope this solves the prob, mate.

What a nightmare, I bet the guy that sprayed the tank took the assembly off when he was repairing the dent in it.

It was horrendous to get it back on as everything was so tight...now I know why ffs.

Cheers lads

Just a thought, do I need to replace the gasket when I remove the assembly?

Yeah, most likely was. Well, at least now you know what's going on.

Yep, new packing every time.

Have you got a service manual, Johnny?

Just ordered one, 11 so it's nothing really.

I have the PDF manual kindly supplied by CaBaRet, looks a pretty easy job once I get the tank off, worst part will be draining it again.

I'm pleased I've found the issue though, I knew it didn't look right.

Yeah, shouldn't cause too much trouble. You'll find the tightening sequence and torque level in your service manual there. Page 5-54.

Absolutely fed up, turned the assembly around, put a new gasket in and it now bloody leaks. It is leaking out of the gasket, not just dripping, pouring.

Took it off and reseated it a few times and still leaks. It looks like it is sitting perfectly.
