Quick Tech Question

1254 Views 4 Replies 0 Participants Last post by  Guest
I need to replace the outer gasket around the fuel cap on my wife's 95 900SP - I take the pattern bolts out and the inner cap comes out but not the outer ring. Does anybody know the secret??

Re: Quick Tech Question (Rooster)

look at the ID circumference of the fuel tank ring/opening. there should be a set of small threaded screws around that circumference that locks the ring in place. you need to remove/loosen them from the ID of the fuel tank ring/opening to remove the assembly (try not to lose them).
Thanks - never thought I'd use those tiny allen wrenches. Now if I can only get that gasket to retain its shape as I stretch it around the ring.......AARRRRHHHHGGGGGGG!!!!
Re: (Rooster)

That might have one of the worst r/r's I had to do
It took me almost 2 hrs just to get that stupid gasket to sit snug around the perimeter as it kept popping off
I then realized that if you start the gasket at the bottom and slowly close the ring, it should keep it in place! Hope it wrks out well for you...

Two sets of hands and we did it. I'll buy a used tank with a good seal before I do it again!!!
