I broke this piece on the carb when pulling the fuel line. What's the part name/number and best way to find a replacement?
1998 GSXL

oh that's the suckiest thing to have break, it's the T fitting on the fuel pump.
You can buy a used pump (i'd sell you one, but, those things are super easy to break so I hoard them) or make a new T with brass fittings from your local hardware store

Good to know I can find a part locally. I was concerned. Thanks for your reply.

How does it come off? I wrenched on it with a pair of pliers, but I’m worried about snapping the other side. Does it just unscrew?

No, you need to replace the entire fuel block.

Trying to tap and thread that piece is asking for leaks.
