This is the first I've ever heard of it for our bikes and it's not like I'm a newbie here.

To the OP: Your fuel pump base is a modified unit with metal quick-disconnects, the stock version uses wimpy plastic pieces. So, the wiring/plug unit in your photo looks beat up- possibly from the removal/re-installation involved when installing the modded pump base.

Sport Classic Specialties does these modifications, if it were my bike I'd reach out to JC for a solution. He has his hands on many used parts and can likely walk you through the simplest/cheapest repair. If you want to DIY, then find a used pump on fleabay or Gotham and swap it over. The wiring install/de-install is probably the trickiest part of putting in a modified fuel pump base.

Hi, my name is Jeff, and I'm a Ducatiholic.

Hello paachi

How did it all end?

My base is leaking too. Not much but enough to make the room smelling of gasoline

....and when I touch the wires at the fuel base it turns wet.....

Ciaoooo

So basically my mechanic used some high quality fuel stable glue to seal it and it seems to be ok. No issues any more

Hi Moller,

Could this be anything to do with your recent breakdown?

Hello Duccout

Nope, that was an other issue. I will write about the breakdown and how to solve it in the original thread.

......in a couple of days since I am away on holiday.


Have a nice summer

Have a look on the Multistrada.net site, quite a few people have successfully used sealant to seal the leak. If we can send Man to the moon, a petrol leak seal should be within our capabilities.

Hello paachi

Do you know brand and type of the glue/sealant your mechanic used?

Ciaooo
