Working on Seiko's bike this weekend we discovered that the high-level connector between the two fuel tanks has a perished grommet, which allows fuel to escape.

It should be a simple job to replace the grommet, but I can't find it in the parts book. There are four (two per tank) grommets for the vents, but they are smaller and thinner than the one for the balance pipe.

I've found a photo of the offending bit on the 950 Info site, but no part number:



I know that the web site has a guide to removing the pipe and sealing the holes, but that's not what's wanted here.

Any suggestions?

That's exactly what I was thinking .............. obviously the Mk1 and not the later models.

WTF is going on with your thumb G? You been sucking it again?? :D
That's a stolen... err... library photo and not me nor my thumb :D

I've done some detective work too, and now have the part number and a couple of the connectors on the way to me. Chances are they're going to go on mine sooner or later.

Can't post the part number here though - it's on a Post-It, stuck to the desk at work :redface:

Just to clarify on the part numbers (this is as shown on my invoice)

part no: 60107027000 (nozzle for tank connection £2.58)
part no: 60107029100 (thread bushing £7.34)

both parts were buggered, so if your changing em I'd recommend doing both

Is this another of those "must change at around 16K miles" items like the slave, waterpump seals and fuel pump?

Is this part just the 'update' link pipe to stop them overflowing when fueled up too high in hot weather? If so,not all bikes have this,mine doesn't and nor do i need it.
