    That fitting is not available from Yamaha.

    Either buy a new carburetor body, or

    drill out what you have and try and find something that will work as a replacement.

    You are on your own now. Time to become your own modification engineer.

      Yep, not good.

      Plastic into aluminum, may be glued or ? ) into the aluminum body.

      Perhaps a small tap and a fuel line fitting tapped and inserted into the broken hole. Basically making a half plastic, half brass "T" fitting.

      If that doesn't pan out, try removing the entire plastic piece (nothing to loose at this point) again, drill and tap and get a regular brass fuel fitting in there. Then, "T" off of that (space permitting)

      * In the future, if you can keep it on one thread is a little easier for the members following/helping. Thanks.

      And please post what your final fix is..

      Good luck.

            If so, make sure its compatable with fuel.
