The fuel tap on my 1kR is always full of surprises! Recently it has been leaking when it is set to reserve, but not in the ON and Off position!
I had already replaced the seal last year, do you have any idea whether it can be assembled incorrectly so that this phenomenon occurs?
In principle, I am of course capable of assembling everything incorrectly, that’s for sure!
Hi Joe - I have had this before (have several VF’s) even when I have replaced the oring that sits between the tap and tank. I have had success with getting a tap kit repair made by ‘All Balls’. Before that I just bought a new one from CMSL - the price is not a lot of difference so it may just be postage that determines it. Hope that helps.
I guess you have to replace the inner rubber part …

All you need is there. Most tricky part is to drill to the housing. Don’t make it “free hand”. You will need to cut a M3 thread.
