I'd just plugged my other one with a bolt, but dont recall any petcock "rattle"...I am however gonna do this to mine. Just a more professional look as well. Well done Kemosabe....
Glad I got the official Wolfie Seal of Approval™ there! I just back from a good hour and half ride (longest since I've done all the engine pulling, stator swapping, etc), and it was a dream! She purrs like a kitten at stop lights, and looks good doing it. She ran like a bat out of hell on the freeway. Some have noted a dis-taste for the "drone" of the V&H Cruizers at freeway speed, but I liked it. Maybe I am just happy that the bike is (finally) happy.

I still get some popping in my front exhaust on decel, but I'll work on the pilots, etc, here next weekend or two.
