it doesnt seem to be dripping from the back bit thats controlled by the vac pipe, but the riveted front bit/tap shaft. dont think these can be split?! am going to have a proper look later.

Oh......... wonder if the rivet can be drilled leak fixed and re-popped? that said there probably is another seal between the riveted plates that Honda don't supply as a serviceable part.

Looks to be 2 on flee-bay both about £26/£27 with one coming from Ireland.

Being a race bike are you not able to some how convert to just an on/off supply direct from the tank?

www.nrp-carbs.com to a repair kit for the tap side. They supply a couple of screws to replace the rivets, & recommend tapping the holes, but I found there was enough space to put nuts on the back as tapping 3mm would need a steady hand!

Hi guys,

Has anyone had issues while putting in the fuel tap service kit?

I'm talking about the one mentioned in this thread earlier from wemoto.

For some reason the smaller rubber seal (bottom left corner) doesn't let any fuel through. I've tried installing it without the big membrane (so there is no pressure from the spring closing the fuel) but it's still not letting out even a drip.

Your help would be appreciated!

You have been sucking on the vacuum pipe haven't you? Else nothing will come out....

Yes I have. I've played with all this more. Now the gas does come out from the fuel tap when vacuum is applied. But the sad part is that there's too little of it coming out. The engine wouldn't even start.
