Noticed the retaining nut is cracked that holds the fuel tank interconnect tube onto the right tank. What type of seal is under the nut and what is the part number of the retaining nut? And can I get the nut off the tube? Bike is stock. Thanks for any input.

The "seal" under the nut is a flare held in compression by the nut. The tube is soldered into the banjo fitting on the left side. The only way to replace the nut is to unsolder it, rplce the nut, and solder it back together. If you cut the flare of to replace it you generally will not have enough material left to re-flare and make it line up properly.
