  • Carb connector o ring

    Hello, i am trying to get my 02 ZZR1200 running and am working on the carbs right now. I have noticed that the plastic connectors that connect the carbs to each other part 92005 and 92005A (picture of what i mean https://imgur.com/a/e9iVwwa) need new o rings. These are not showing up under the parts diagrams, just the plastic connectors (fitments). Does anyone know where i can get the o rings for the fitments? I have tried searching the forums but nothing is coming up. Thank you all in advance.

    According to the parts diagram, the o-rings are included with the tubes.

        Take the old ones to someplace that carries o-rings for fuel applications and size them up. Get sizes that seem to match
        and get some sizes above and below what you think will fit. Then you're covered and not out of but a few bucks.
        I have purchased some o-rings kits in the past, which contain probably 100 or more in various sizes, these are good
        to keep around the house so to speak, just for stuff like this. Just make sure they're fuel safe type.

          Thank you for the responses. I'll probably do what Charlie suggests and buy a whole bunch of em in different near sizes and use what works best.

            Oh, well if you still have one of the old ones, you can measure it with a micrometer (metric scale) and then easily order all you want online, or find them locally. There are three measurements to take (although two should be sufficient since the third can be derived):
            Inside diameter
            Outside diameter
            Thickness

              Thanks man, I actually do have some but they are broken. I can still measure the OD of the plastic tube they go on though and the thickness of the o ring. I want to use the right parts but i guess with o rings it doesnt really matter as long as the size is right.
