i found one 35 quid - if you have one you will need it - its the bit that sits between carb 2+3  for the fuel inlet
- i saw fowlers but thought back order could take ages
- my other bike didnt sell on ebay so thankfully i still have a backup bike for a few months

Stupid though maybe, but, what is the outside diameter of the T pipe could you use a T piece from a aquarium the sort of fitting that goes into a fish tank air line.
As I say it is just a thought, one like that if it fitted is likely to cost you 90 pence and available at most garden centres.
I will measure a fitting on one of my tanks ......................................


4.75mm outside diameter and made of plastic, the internal bore is 3mm.
Not sure how it will stand up to petrol? But cheap plastic fuel cans do.
Just a thought

Tis good you have one coming and you found it at a better price than initially thought.
I only mentioned the aquarium tank T piece because in you first post you said 'anyone know of any suppliers or anything that fits and is available cheap?
sounds like you will soon have the bike back on the road.  :thumbup  Good luck.

Whatever you get, you want something that is safe with petrol. Plastic generally isn't unless it specifies it.
You can get brass fittings for fish tanks too which would be ok.

something like this would do the job
