Glad you got it running, good luck on the rest of your trip.

Their ingenuity saved their trip.
If they chose not to pursue it good for them.

Uh I think you're the I'm guessing legal action is your next stepYeah I think it was funny and I'll bet this is one of the better stories of the OP's adventure vacation and BTW its Whitehorse not White Horse

Just returned today from AK trip of 31 days.
I knew there was a reason NOT to take Highway 37 "The Highway from Heaven".

Otherwise...Stewart Cassiar is absolutely beautiful!

Really? Wow, I bet you're a LOT of fun to ride with. Do you ever find yourself wondering why you don't have friends? Holy shit.

Troy dumped out his junk parts can (it's like an old whore; sometimes it makes you happy, sometimes it disappoints.) and found a tube with ferrule(?). The tube, about 3/4 inches long, just fit into the shoulder of the base, with the flare of the ferrule holding it inside. About 1/4 inch poked out of the broken end, and the fuel line went onto that. Both the base and the fuel line needed a bit of enlargement, but then both sides had a perfect interference fit to hold it all together. With some superglue applied to the completed connection, it lasted till Whitehorse, where I added some J-B Weld to the whole break point.

Who says GSs don't respond to J-B Weld and duct tape?

Thanks all who followed this. We're on our way to Inuvik tomorrow, with fingers crossed.

Ira, post pics of your repair. Are you guys doing a ride report? Don't mess up the dirt roads a friend and I are heading up there end of July.

were back

We finished our ride yesterday, Ira today as he gets home to Ca. We rode to Inuvik, TOW, Denali, Valdez, and the road to McCarthy ( a bitch of a road ) and just to tempt the gods re-road the Cassier, ate the Tourances on the rear in just over 7300 miles and had a ball except for the weather and the JB weld held the whole way. All in all, not a bad way to spend 23 days....on a motorcycle !!
