I am getting a set of used safari tanks for my 950. How thick viton sheet should I buy? 2-3 mm enough?

Personally I'd find a fuel proof sealer and bond that sucker on.
Unlike with the FI pump which you need to remove for filters,
on the 950's you need to install it and not have to dick with it again.

Maybe some Permatex Hylomar Blue and an adhesive backed heavy duty
gasket material. This would be removable .

Also be sure the threaded inserts in the tank are not standing proud
of the tank plastic.
I had to grind them back flush with the tank to get a good seal for my fuel pump.

Devil boy, boxed and ready to ship !

Goog led me to this thread but is failing me to find a replacement gasket. I have a gasket that looked even worse than the OP's and was steadily dumping gas all over my garage. I tried making my own out of gasket material but failed and my garage continued to smell like eau de fuel and only worked under extremely low pressures.

I just bought this bike used from a guy in Austin so I dont know much about it. She's a 950 adventure with a safari tank. Is that a unique gasket to safari or is it used on the OEM tank as well? Either way, anyone know of a place to buy a replacement? My gasket making skills suck.

Hmm. When mine leaked just after I changed the fuel filters, the trailside fix was a thin bicycle tube a rider had in his tool kit, which of course has been added to my tool kit, now. That was 8 months and 12k miles ago. I'm afraid to replace it!!

Not using a safari tank but have used a block of plate from them that I got years ago when placing 990 tanks on my 950, have not been leaking but the gasket was quite rotten when removed:



Tanks will go on the brand new 990R and the brand new tanks put aside as spares.
