My '98 k12rs must have had water collecting/sitting in the bottom of the tank (despitemy storing it inside) and the bottom of the tank is the fuel pump assembly, right?
The result is that the water rusted the plate including up under the seal, and rusted the surface enough so it los its smooth surface and seal and the tank started leaking at the plate/gasket.
Being my machine is a '98, which did have the early recall done for the tank replacement (but it is still one which has the bolts in the bottom versus the later one with the plastic ring nut.
So, I must replace the plate assembly The fuel pump and connecting components are all in tact and working), and would like to replace the tank as well if I can find a used one woth the plastic wing nut fraom a wrecked/parted out beast. Anybody out there that has such or can point me to someone who might have these?
Thanks- Jim Stergas
