That is the fuel quick disconnect, and the bottom half is discontinued.
The good news is that failure 99.9% the top half

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Ryan, stupid question on my part but did you try to reinsert the male connector into the female port in the tee to see if it would reseat?
When I got my 01 it had a brass tee in it that made it a real pain to clamp off for tank removal.

Thanks for the info! On most of the online parts catalogs all I can see available now is an o-ring (part 21)

If the o-ring isn't going to fix the leak, couldn't I just replace it with a solid metal "T" of the same diameter?

No, I didn't remove anything because I could actually see gas running down the valve, so I had just assumed it was either the o-ring or the entire valve was faulty. I didn't see any brass connectors anywhere

Speaking from experience here...

When you reassemble the quick-disconnect, make sure you are pushing the metal tab on the female part all the way in while reinserting the male part - if you rely on the stop, you run a good chance of shaving a bit off the o-ring as it's reinserted, causing a leak...

The o-ring is a standard size item - not Vic specific.

Also, when working with the q-d, you want to pull / push it straight out / in - don't get it cocked at an angle, lest it break (which it will, given half a chance - especially if it has a few years on it).

Well its already broken, I snapped it when I tried removing it today

So I'm now looking for a T section with 3/8" tops and a 1/2" bottom, which is starting to feel damn near impossible.

That quick-disconnect is probably the item which causes the most blue language from owners of the early bikes... The female part does have a non-Vic source, but the "T" male was made specifically for Vic, and there's no direct replacement out there.

Some people have researched substitutions from the McMaster-Carr catalog and other industrial supply houses, but none are direct replacements; fitting oversized components in there can be difficult, and usually hoses need to be trimmed to fit it all together.

As KevinX said, the top part is still available - I'd bite the bullet (while cursing the price) & buy two while you still can... (Come to think of it, I should follow my own advice!)

What I think would be perfect would be a 3-way plug valve with "T" passages, enabling the 2 side ports in and the center out; turn the valve plug 180 degrees, and the outlet is blocked. Unfortunately, I've not yet found any... (Not for lack of trying, though!)

Does anyone have the part # to the top portion of the tee quick disconnect valve that is still available?

Thanks
