Don't buy the Russel the nut is too large. I used the summit fitting and it worked. I torqued it to 5ft-lb instead of 10 and used loctite 592 thread sealant. Even at 5ft-lb I was worried it was going to break. I think 10ft-lb is way to much. The original fitting is stainless steel, and I believe the summit is aluminum. I would prefer a good stainless. I am going to the dealer today to get a OEM replacement in case I need one. I am going to try and talk to the Yamaha Rep and bring up this issue. Seems like they need to supply a higher quality part. I will also search around for a better one. This is a weak point in the system. If that fitting breaks you will lose oil pressure and could lose the motor. I am thinking of installing a oil pressure gauge on this line. Has anyone done that? Does the yxz have any oil pressure fail safes?Poison Factory and Zilla,
Would you recommend me buying that fitting from Summit? The first link is for Amazon-Russel fitting,
Thanks. I also live near American hose and fitting, Its a specialty store with many types of fittings, AN to hydraulic to pneumatics etc. readily available.
