I was helping a friend yesterday with his K75.
It was poring fuel from the bottom of the fuel tank somewhere. After some inspection we found that fuel sender is rusty and I am assuming that the leak is coming from it. Not from the o ring but actually leaking through the wire pass through on the sender plate. I will try to verify it today by testing the sender only. The tank is off the bike so I can take a good look. The rest of the tank looks beautiful, and sender is the only "service hole" on the bottom of the tank.
Has anybody seen anything like this?
While in the tank we discovered that the fuel pump is aftermarket, poorly fitted, and the fuel lines are almost done as well.
Can anybody recommend a full meal deal for the fuel tank guts at a reasonable price.
I am leaning toward euromotoelectrics fuel pump combo as seen here
Fuel sender is BMW only item @$130 (max bmw).
Any input is greatly appreciated. I don't want to get in the tank anytime soon. I will be smelling like gas for the next month.
