Thumbs down GSXR 1100WT Fuel Tap

Hi,

I've got a problem with a leaky fuel tap. It's not leaking in to the carbs, more leaking around the Res/On/Pri tap itself.

Does anyone know a cure for this?

Dave

Re: GSXR 1100WT Fuel Tap

Those stock petcocks corrode inside and become virtually useless after a while. This is what I used and it allowed me to get rid of the vacuum line.
PINGEL® - The Guzzler Fuel Valve

There is no reserve on the guzzler and you have to install an offset plate. I also opted to install a Pingel inline fuel filter.

You can find rebuild kits for the petcock, simple to do.

Re: GSXR 1100WT Fuel Tap

Thanks lads.

I did indeed find a rebuild kit. I've taken mine apart and replaced everything - what a mess the seals were in, no wonder it was leaking.

I did however manage to break the new tap shaft seal....anyone know where to get these as a single purchase?

Try somewhere local that makes hydraulic hoses etc. I get all my bearings, seals, and O-rings from the guy down the road. 3 bucks for a wheel bearing instead of 15. The small seal around the shifter shaft, he only charged me a couple bucks and was in overnight.

Re: GSXR 1100WT Fuel Tap

Yeah, unless you can find it like racerguy said I've only seen them come in the kits. The OEM parts listings don't even show them.

Re: GSXR 1100WT Fuel Tap

Got that sorted - thanks for the help. Ended up using a couple of rebuild kits and made a good tap out of them.

Now on to the next problem - carb cleaning...
