This is the second time I'm having trouble with the quick disconnect fitting on the bottom side of the fuel tank leaking when trying to reconnect it. The first time i bought new HD parts and i don't want to do that again just so it can fail next time i pull the tank. Does anyone else have this problem? Are there any aftermarket or homemade remedies. I would like to replace the existing setup with something that actually works. It's a 07 Ultra.

john deere# R26286 o-ring

if you want to take a pick and gently pull yours out?????
you MIGHT be able to just wipe it and the land that it sits in off,then lube it a little and roll it back in. sometimes they just get a little nick or flat spot on them. roll it back in and good to go.

Glad I read this post... been considering pulling my tank off to install a HogTunes amp and wiring. This way I can grab that o-ring ahead of time and have it waiting.

Thanks!

I have a 2000 rk mm tank. 2 efi connections. Bought 2 new tank connections. $55.00 a piece from harley
Went with black fuel line in tank instead of clear. Cut clear line off.

Read where you have to use submerisable fuel line after I was done. Crap!!!
Had to buy another fitting again just to get the clear line, they dont sell it separate.

Any way I have a brand new fitting sitting in my shop, no fuel line with it just the fitting.
Will sell it for $20.00, maybe $5 to ship it.

Is the MM efi tank fitting the same for the one line delphi tank??
If so, I have a new one.

I am in the process of ordering carb parts to convert my MM bike to carb
I have half of them now.
I then will have 2 more brand new fuel fittings with plastic lines attached to them.

I went through bike put new filter and lines in gas tank, cleaned throttle body, new gaskets on throttle body. cleaned injectors the whole nine yards.
Still did not run right after a 3 mile ride.
So these parts in gas tank have 3 miles on them filter and all.

Will be selling all that down the road.

Will go out to garage and take photo of the other one

You ought to call a harley dealer say you need a fuel fitting for a 2000 rkc and ask for part number, then see if that fits you tank and model year.
You would then have first hand knowledge.
I have it if you need it.

First picture see the new ones in my tank?? I throw money away at will :)

It looks like the right one but I'll check out the part numbers and get back to you.

Ive had my tank off my 09 at least 6 times since I've had it and have never experienced leakage from that quick disconnect.
