Replacements for plastic fuel quick release couplings
I just finished 15k Desmo service on my 2014 Multistrada .
When I connected back my plastic fuel couplings , i observed fuel leak as soon I turned on the ignition key.
I broke one of the male plastic quick release connector while trying to unplug to inspect. One of the viton O-rings (part # 88641181A) broke off and caused the leak :-(. I also ordered a connector (part # 81440101A) and couple of O-rings.
While looking for solutions, I observed that this has been a common problem in ducatis and aftermarket metal quick release connectors and even metal fuel pump base are available. I could not find one that fits 2014 Multi (atleast from product description and fitting checks).
Has anyone tried this or have any suggestions ?
There is not clamp used to connect the fuel connector to hose. The hose has some inner sleeve that kind of sticks to the fuel connector and does not let it out easy. The inner sleeve stretchs as I try to pull it out. How do I remove it? Can i reuse the hose if I somehow pull it out? That shit is expensive to buy.
