i added a quick disconnect - after i broke the so called quick disconnect originally fitted - broke it at the elbow on the fuel pump cover.

it is not too difficult to the old broken part and replace it it with an new elbow from Gutsibits.

now i leave the connect at the pump alone and use the one i added six inches down the line.

You would have to adapt what that bog says, it's in American. Here in the UK you would have to find a BSP fitting about the right size. BSP fitting are used all over Europe.

I tried to fit one of those quick disconnects to my fuel line and cocked it up entirely! Forgot I was dealing with a pumped system and ended up having to fit all new fuel lines using the appropriate pressure rated hose. Mine do look quite a bit heavier duty than the ones in the article but they must know what they're doing. Needed Baldrick's help to get me out of the mess I'd made of the fuel lines so be advised it's not as easy as it first appears!

I think it's a mistake to assume that someone who writes a blog "must know what they're doing".

The main update to that blog is that the fuel tank fitting is now available as a seperate part. Gutsibits stock it, and it is also a standard Ford part which mey well be even cheaper.

As Brian says, the original red tank connection spigot part is available from Gutisbits and is a quick / cheap way to repair and stay standard.

For those fed up with the original connector not playing ball, (as I was) there are alternatives from CPC (I bought via the Tom Parker website). At least a couple of us without a broken connector have left in the original in place, cut the fuel pipe further away from the tank and added a couple of CPC fittings.

I think they also supply spigot type connectors but I am not certain whether they fit the threaded hole that the original red spigot is in. I was going to look at this in case it was an easy replacement (similar to an approach I took to fix a Triumph 955i once). I haven't checked for a Guzzi so can't advise. I'd be tempted to try it if I was doing it again.

I went posh and bought the chrome plated brass fittings although plastic ones seem to be available. Trick is to make sure you buy the versions with the internal cut-off valves and (petrol proof) viton O-rings fitted. On the Tom Parker site the cut-off valves are mentioned in the description and viton seals are denoted by a "V" in the part number.

Some more discussion here:

... and towards the end of my post if you search for "V1200 Sport - tank leaking"
