FUEL JOINT O-RINGS

Post by rider1939 »



I've been unable to find o-rings for the carb Fuel Joint 16026-MAM-000, that runs between the top plate and the accelerator pump. One can get the assembly from Honda, but I only need the o-rings.

Has anybody been able to run these down ? ? ?

Thanks -------------- Josh

Should be just standard metric O-rings. Measure them. The problem is buying a small quantity. I have often bought a 100 pack just to get one. There are often small assortments at auto parts stores. Or you can see if a garage will sell you a couple of loose ones.

The good thing about O-rings is they are kinda "stretchy"

I've had success with many Goldwing O-Rings just going to the local ACE Hardware store with the part in hand that you need the o-ring to fit. In most cases Goldwing o-rings don't have to be "exact", just "close enough"

You should surf all the o-ring drawers but I've always been able to find a ring that will fit and do the job, even if not exact. ACE usually has metric sizes, too, so you might find an exact fit without any stretching. Look thru ALL the O-ring drawers, metric sizes are usually kept separate from the SAE sizes.

You can probably find a suitable size o-ring, but make sure it is Viton or other fuel-resistant material.

Harbor Freight has an assortment of Nitrile Metric O rings in a plastic box. I have used them on the Wing and my quad carbs. So far, they are holding up fine after quite a few years of use.
