Motorcycle fuel leak fixed, did not cost HD!

As noted in an earlier post I took the Army motorcycle into Frederick HD to fix a fuel leak.  The check value (part #14 in the image below) part of the fuel line was weeping gas when the bike was off and dripping when it was running.

Turns out that there are two “O” rings that complete the seal when the fuel line is attached and make everything work.  According to the folks at the dealership they replaced both O rings, essentially rebuilding the quick disconnect.  The cost was $26 dollars; my extended warranty has a deductible of $50.  So, for once, I did not have a repair bill of HD (hundred dollars)!

The leaky part!
