tank: fuel plate bolt

Last year I was extremely frustrated with my '01 tt600. Replaced the fittings on the fuel pump (plastic ones snapped during maintenance... this also took three trips to the dealer, 1 hr drive each way), snapped off one of the fittings in the fuel plate and ended up replacing the fuel plate... Upon reinstallation, fuel sprayed everywhere. New plate didn't make a good seal. Try to remove it... and sheared off one of the mounting bolts on the tank. Fahhh!

Now that it's sat for a while and the gravel is almost all off the road, and I've chipped away all the ice from the bike...

Can I replace that bolt somehow? Drill it out and weld a new one in? Or am I looking at a new tank?

Also the inside is rusty, but it looks like surface and probably easily cleaned from what I see on here.

Thanks ya'll.

Hey man I just finished that nightmare. Just bought a 05 S4 and the PO didn't have the airbox on correctly, took off the fuel tank and Bam! Male fuel connector broke. Local Triumph dealer hooked me up with new aluminum ones because obviously PO didn't use the recall, clipped them in and Bam! Female connector broke. I should of replaced them before one broke, the other one came out smooth. Patience with a dremel and a pick, and a 1/4 BSPT tap, quick couplings metal females and back in business. Did you try to remove and tap the broken female before replacing the plate? Reinstall or replace ring gasket under the plate? Sucks about the bolt, Not sure a weld would hold but worth a try.

No gasket... looks like a metal-metal seal?

tank: fuel plate bolt

No O ring on either the old plate and the new... curious
That would make sense.

That should be the seal problem, only a $5 fix, and maybe salvage the old plate by carefully removing old connector, tapping the threads, sell the new plate to offset cost of repairing tank bolts or towards another tank and get back out there.

Bikebandit... $30 to ship an O ring to Canada. As much as I dislike our "local" dealer (read: 1hr drive from me) methinks I'll be calling them first or looking for another source.

Yeah I would, dealer here in Philly has always given me a better deal on parts than online, and they can offer advice if needed.
