11009-1656 GASKET,FUEL GAUGE PHOTO NEEDED

I am looking for a photo of the fuel gauge gasket....the seal that sits between the fuel level sending unit and the fuel tank. This is used to seal up the opening that the sending unit gets bolted to, on the bottom of the fuel tank.

Item 11009-1656 GASKET,FUEL GAUGE is no longer available.
Does anyone have a photo of this seal?


I was going to just cut a piece of fuel resistant rubber (orange sheet) to fit the bottom of the sending unit before I bolt it on, but wanted to see the original seal in order to see how it is shaped/made if possible.

Thanks in advance for any photos posted!!

thanks! I searched eBay and did not see that photo.

I wonder how thick they are?.
I am sure my hand cut seal will work based on the photos. I may need to double up the material to get compression since the material is not as thick as the lip on the sending unit.

I think you'll be fine with your plan of doubling up. The tank isn't really under pressure so as long as it's not dripping onto the hot engine, good to go

I should have clarified earlier - there's an active eBay listing for these.

It looks to me like there's a raised ring bonded to the gasket. Maybe you could use a large o-ring in combination with the gasket you're cutting out.

It's the 5gal tank I picked up, so the original tank on the bike still has the seal if I need it when I switch them over.

I did however make an aluminum plate and used the rubber seal to seal the tank when I had to clean and rinse the tank as well as pressure test it, so I know it will hold up fine. It did after all already get soaked in acetone, and a bunch of other nasty liquids, and did not even seep, let alone drip.

There are Fuel gauges on motorcycles? Who uses a fuel guage? The math is much more accurate.

Hmm, getting ready to strip my tank. Might have to make a gasket, huh.

not to mention that your bike is so fast the fuel dries up quicker that the gauge can react.

Gasket looks rubber and easily reusable tbh
