    Where do you find a fuel pump o ring for a 2015 Norton 961 ( with only 420 miles on it) ?
    I've been noticing a very small leak around the screws on the fuel pump plate, very small and only after a ride, not when it's setting ... I contacted AF1 Racing on the part and they put a call into Norton ... AF1 are thinking you can't get the o ring separate from the pump? Any help?
    Thanks!

    Well, when I changed the fuel pump on my 961 - had an accident and damaged the tank-, I was asking Norton UK for a new gasket and was told that you don’t need to change it. I just reused the old one.
    May be your problem will be solved by properly cleaning the gasket?

    Perhaps the screws are loose or the fuel line connector is leaking. If it’s not leaking while sitting, I’d think it’s coming from the connector. If the base o ring was leaking it most likely would be leaking all the time. Even when parked.

    I needed the red plastic fuel spigot,only comes with a whole new pump ( over £300 ) , turns out its from a moto guzzi V7 so managed to source one for bout £25 from an independent Italian specialist , so what ever Part u need go down that road ,I agree bout refitting gasket & cleaning it up if req ,but also makes sense that it prob on fuel line connector or some part under pressure

    Wow Thanks! that sure looks like the o-ring. I've never had a low mile bike with a problem, so I'm thinking this is a small thing... Again it only happens after a ride and only a few drops and that's it, the corrections look dry just the screws are a little wet.

    You may want to apply some Blue Hylomar to the o-ring joint (both sides) before assembly .

    Is it a unique shaped ring? Never had mine off.

    My 2015 did the same with 1100 miles. After removing the tank and the pump Assy. I noticed the tank warped between two of the bolts causing a low spot. I built the area up with some sealant we use on fuel systems in the aviation field. The gasket was still good. Looking at the photo my gasket was a thick single o'ring that fits in a recessed channel on the pump housing.

    Does it look like the one in the picture above ? Can you tell us what the sealant was and where to get it ? I suggested to use Blue Hylomar .

    No it's a circular ring O'ring that is oval shaped to the shape of the fuel pump housing. The sealant I used is made by PPG and goes by the part # PRC 1422 B2. This is used in aircraft fuel tanks to seal the joints.I know Aircraft Spruce has it and I'm sure you can locate it locally. It has a shelf life and most repair stations like mine dispose of it after its self date.That being said check around your local maintenance shops at the airport. It may be had for next to nothing.

    Circular in section . OK , Maybe Gutsibits will have that one as well . Does this sealant harden ? Can it be applied and then disassembled again later. Thanks for the information .

    • '09-'17 RSV4 (all variants)
    • '16-'17 Tuono V4 1100 (all variants)
    • '11-'15 Tuono V4
    • '06-'10 Tuono
    • '04-'09 RSVR, RSVR Factory
    • '00-'03 Falco
    • '01-'04 Futura
    • '01-'07 CapoNord
    • '14-'17 Caponord 1200
    • '16-'17 Caponord 1200 Rally
    • '18 Dorsoduro 900
    • '09-'16 Dorsoduro 750
    • '11-'13 Dorsoduro 1200
    • '02-'05 Tuono
    • '98-'03 Mille, Mille-R
    • '06-'11 SXV, RXV 4.5 / 5.5
    • '18 Shiver 900
    • '07-'15 Shiver
    Please note that this sealant can not take up gaps greater than 0.50mm. If you apply this sealant and the fuel tank leaks, you probably have a warped fuel tank.

    I'm a little confused, isn't the O ring in question, the (oval) rubber ring seated by the screws?

    Yes , But the use of this sealant may be a good idea when you reassemble , fills gaps etc.

    If you would like a good picture of the fuel pump seal,go to the 961 work shop manuals on the Colorado Norton works page. Select fuel tank components and scroll down. It's just a circular oval shaped seal in a machined groove.

    Thanks Tony, I picked up an O ring but it doesn't look the same... I got a hold of AF1 parts, they called Norton but got no help from them. I'm going to send him this Fuel Pump photo of Richard-7 and see what they find. IMG_0131.JPG .
