Hey, I did a stupid move today on the 04 YZ450.

I was installing my off road tank and had this bright idea that I would try and turn the fuel connection on the carb to get better alignment with the fuel hose. Well guess what I did get it turned but it twisted the fitting rather than turning it in the carb. So now I have a leak. Can a person replace just the fitting?

As you know it appears to be pressed into the carb. I would think a person could drill it out and install a new one. But trying to purchase the right part could be a Pain in the rear.


Thanks for any help.

You might look at SUDCO. Yamaha doesn't service that part.
