Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

It's a bit difficult, as it needs to fit the fuel tank - off the top of my head I don't know which non-original ones fit (mine is fine and hasn't caused a problem).

You can buy a rebuild kit on ebay - don't know if that would solve your problem?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-CB-500-1998-Tourmax-Petrol-Fuel-Tap-Repair-Kit-/301540980539?hash=item46353e373b

I would suggest that it's not worth paying the 218 pounds that Honda want for a new one:

I would recommend the Tourmax set as well; the leaking diaphragm is probably the reason for your issues.
I repaired several fuel taps in the past using the rebuild kit.




On the other hand, the front side with the rivets is sealed by an O-ring around the lever. That part is not contained in the set as most riders don't want to drill out the rivets.




It is very unlikely that this O-ring causes the leakage, but of course that can happen as well.

NRP to a kit for the fuel side, you need to drill out the rivets, but they're easily replaced with 4mm nuts & bolts.

So, the problem was caused by the diaphragm, not by the front gasket, right?

Well no, the diaphragm was fine, the leak was from the front part. The rivets need to be drilled out to get to the seals, may be ethanol is causing this problem
