Help mystery wire and fuel leak

I'm hoping some of the orange Guru's can help me with a fuel leak problem, I just finished checking valves, resetting floats, changing over to a facet fuel pump, yaddda yadda yaddaa. When I started it, oops, it being a 2006 950 Adventure S (the better blue ones ;) ) I noticed one of the brass fuel fitting at the carb leaking (see video) is there a little o-ring in there or do I need to replace the fitting or worse


The other thing I found was this mystery wire, does anyone know where it goes or what it was supposed to do

Carb fuel leak...o-rings, no biggie: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...carb+fuel+leak

The mystery wire looks to me like either the oil pressure switch wire or one of the carb heater wires.

It attaches to the sensor on the back side of the front cylinder. Near impossible to get to with the airbox in place.

Yeah, carb heater wires comes off a different part of the harness and would never make it that far away...definitely oil pressure switch wire. You get to pull the airbox again! There are better ways to get 'er done... (ahem) http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=870579

Right there, thanks. On a side note if anyone needs help getting their carbs off I am quickly becoming an expert

carb balance

Does anyone know what size the bleeder nipples are that screw into the side of the manifold, the ones used for balancing the carbs, when the canisterectomy was done some one just bolted off the holes, makes it a bit hard to balance the carbs
