Default Petrol tap rebuild kit

Apparently I can't get a new diaphragm for the petrol tap on my XJR1300 and have to give Yam over 60 for a complete tap.

Does anyone know where I can get just a diapragm or a rebuild kit as the idea of buying a complete tap irks me especially when it is due to a diapragm which always have finite lifespans

leave it as it is, then fit a fuel solenoid in the line, that way fuel turns off when the ignition goes off

and at about 14 its cheaper

Assuming I can find space - it is a very short run from tank outlet to tap - where do they come from ?

LPG installs, can you put it after the tap and leave tap on prime?

I know it sounds a bit of a bodge on such a nice bike

I fit them as it means you dont have to worry about turning fuel on and off, its done with ignition, just earth one wire to mount and feed it with live from the coil

well i am going to take the tap apart and look at it tonight - apparently according to some people on the xjr forum the piece thay have needed to replace has actually been the seal on the end of the plunger that cuts off fuel feed or the spring that causes that closure. Well I had run the tank really really empty so I am wondering if there is a piece of crap stopping it seating right and actually a good clean out will sort it without the need to replace things.

Worth an hour of fiddling in front of the telly i reckon

New petrol tap and a oil & filter change and she seems to be running like a dream again - hard to believe a simple drip caused by a leaky tap can cause so much trouble
