@RICZ came up with a way to fix these by inserting a tube inside then putting the pieces together then using a JB Weld type product to make it whole again.

He even posted pictures somewhere. Hopefully he will see my flag to him and help out.

Get a piece of 1/4" steel or aluminum tubing and a drill bit that will provide a friction fit for the tubing. Empty the tank and stand it up. Carefully drill both parts. Have sweetie hold a vacuum nozzle to the tank part when drilling. Measure the depth of the hole in the tank - just the plastic portion. Measure the length of the broken off nipple and cut the tubing to the length those two add up to. Grind a taper on one end of the tubing and tap it into the top end of the nipple as shown in the photo. Remove any burrs. Place some adhesive (super glue, plastic cement, whatever) on both broken surfaces, align and tap tubing into pump body per photo. That's it!
I did that repair many years ago and it's still holding and it should, cuz it's now much stronger than before.
FYI....When removing the tank, lift it and disconnect the fuel line from the tank. Then reverse that when replacing the tank. Disconnecting from the lower end only invites breaking the nipple.

Rainman123,

If all else fails and you need a new fuel pump assembly, I have a new one at my house. I'm not that far from you being just east of exit 20 from I-75. I have a funeral to attend this afternoon though. The new fuel pump assembly I have is for the Cross bikes. Just let me know if you need it. You can replace it later as I don't need it right now.

7 1 6 2 5 5 9 7 1 1 is my cell number

All the best,

Mark

I really appreciate it but haven't been able to find out if it would work on the Vegas yet
I will get in touch with you later this evening

A 2011 Vegas and a 2012 CCT have different item numbers for the fuel pump assembly. I suspect the only change is the attached fuel filter. The formed rubber gasket is the same for both bikes so I highly suspect the fuel pump assemblies are/would be interchangeable. From looking at the diagrams on www.partspitstop.com, the Vegas fuel filter is long and thin. The CCT fuel filter looks like it could be the same filter just folded in half. Go figure.
