    Hello, how are you guys!? Hope, everything is fine...

    So, I have a 1992 FLSTC and during a maintenance I got an issue within the carb...the fuel inlet is leaking a bit, actually, it is a plastic inlet and it is look like it's too dry...so i think it is leaking through the dry cracks....

    Well, my question is, is it possible to replace this? I'm asking because the guy who is working on this doesn't have this info and we don't have a very good dealer's support down here, specially for for Carbs, old bikes, etc... anyway, I can't imagine that this is irreplaceable...

    I found this item 288: L-JOINT, FUEL INLET, CARB, Part Number: 420095
    (1642235-001) on BikeBandit.com, am I correct? I attached a picture to illustrate this, but please, don't mind about what the mechanical did (the glue), that's why I'm so angry and desperate about this....

    Thanks in advance,

    Alex

    Double check what they have in stock at a dealer, but the factory part is now all metal, most likely because no one would buy the plastic/ metal one, once aftermarket all metal ones became available.
