I totally agree dude. Frikin horrible flaw in that design. So I actually gave the pump to a "friend" to look at and the dude lost the damn thing. Don't know how but he did. The bike has just been sitting ever since. I'm thinking about just winging it and finding a used pump on eBay...
What do U plan on doing??

I have the exact same issue with my 05. I am thinking of using Seal-All. Anybody had any success with that? And I'm thinking I can try that without taking off the fuel assembly...?

Re: What is this part called?

whatever glue you use it has to be compatible with gas or it's just going to fall off. and you few guys are literally the only people I've seen on a R6 or R1 forum with this issue. seems like the plastic is decaying. or it's because of ethanol in the fuel.
this isn't a issue this bike had at all.

It may be that way so they can attach different diameter nozzles... in which case there may be an o-ring seal in between the two parts. First question is, do they separate and if so, how? Just pry apart? That type of plastic can be inflexible and brittle. Even attempting to find out whether they're separable may be risky.
