Hoping someone knows where we can find a metal replacement for the stock fuel line connection. Given how often you need to pull the tank for various tasks I see this cheap part going bad at some point. I had a Speed Triple that was notorious (as are many other Triumph models) for crumbling connectors. For that bike I found metal replacements.

Does anyone know where to find metal ones for this bike? I'd like to have it on hand.

Here are the numbers....

can you tell me triumph part number for it so I can find metal equivalent.

I think according to @Tal 's report of this part breaking, that you have to replace the entire fuel line from tank to throttle body connection, so that particular part is not listed individually..
 
What you think about these connectors? and there are more advanced connectors at this website

The MCT "looks" right, not sure of the other. They appear to be plastic. If there isn't a metal replacement it might not be a bad idea to at least have a plastic replacement on hand. I think one of these companies could tell by the numbers on the part I photographed if they can match it. I emailed the company that had the metal ones for the Speed Triple to see if they might, but haven't heard back.

Yep...if the elbow on that connector breaks like mine did, you cannot buy the connector from Triumph separately. It comes complete with hose and banjo fitting and the hose is crimped to the elbow. Yes you can buy separate fittings ....plastic ones..make sure it's 7.89 mm...but your warranty will be jeopardized as its not a Triumph part according to my dealership mechanic. If there becomes a leak and the bike catches fire then..? I havnt seen any made of brass but they may be out there...Mine cost me $NZ186.00 complete!...if you say it fast it dosnt hurt as much!

Ouch! It's $78 here (US)

I'm wondering if I should go ahead and order it weeks in advance (nothing is EVER in stock) of my next air/fuel filter change, or just keep pursuing the aftermarket part.

Mine is out of warranty, but I'd still feel stupid if I burned up my bike :banghead:
