    :hello: They fit the 1988 to 1994 EL 250, ZL 10, 2004 to 2009 Vulcan & W800 2012 to 2018 so I can't see them being discontinued. They even fit some ATVs & UTVs.

    3 X each. Collar and Dampers. No F-ing way.
    Luckily I found that the ZX900B uses the same dampers and sleeves and have found an entire set for $12 on eBay. Screenshot_20181211-171836.png

    :hello: Nice. :notworthy:. Good find. E-bay does have some good deals but something needs done when that at the end of a posting it will say (fits Honda XL 70) & you know it does not.

    So true, I bought a petcock for my EN450 on there that said it fit. Well it fit but was the wrong orientation leading to some cursing and anger.

    $12 on ebay instead of $57 from dealer. 14.1 collars and the dampers to fit. Came with a bunch of other crap too from a zx9r tank.

    My cap only buzzes when the tank is 2/3 empty so it's my low-fuel warning... :D

    Prior to that, i had a leather shoe lace tied around the cap for years to stop it from buzzing.

    I never would have thought the root cause was hardened tank mounts.
