Thread: Gas Tank Quick -connect

    Angry Gas Tank Quick -connect

    Well it is almost getting spring in Wyoming. Got my R1150 RT out of the barn yesterday and took a short ride. Parked in the drive way and seen a little gas on the right side under the center stand. Removed the right side and found the quick-connect leaking a little, touched the hoses and that was a mistake, lost all the gasoline, glad I was in the driveway got a can and saved most of the gas, Sure glad I at home, and engine wasn't hot could have been a bad thing all the gasoline hot engine.

    what Spring's first ride is for! At least you can replace them with the upgraded metal ones now and take one less worrysome item off the list

    That's been a problem with the K-bikes too. Dumped my "Q-connectors" at my 12K service, for brass barbs. A little extra hassel for O&R, but I don't worry about leaks 500 miles from the nearest shop.....

    West Seattle, the land that time forgot.

    I'll second the beemerboneyard QDs

    I've had the tank off half a dozen times in the past year, without any concerns. Remember to install one of the QDs "upside down" so when reconnecting them, there's no mistakes when snapping them together.

    mine broke 100 miles from nowhere

    hit a large hole at low speed and started leaking. Wasn't aware until i stopped and it was dripping to ground. Always carried fuel hose and connectors and clamps after that to eliminate the quick connects if necessary. Think that would be a must have like tire plugs and pump.
