Yep that's expensive. But they also have all the parts necessary to rebuild the old petcock for a lot less. None of the other places I looked had all of them. I think I'll go ahead and order all of the rebuild parts. Ethanol gas tends to destroy the rubber parts over time. I think it is best to not move the petcock. I know how far a Vulcan 750 will go on a tank of gas. I'll jut put in on ON and leave it there. Seems like turning the petcock after ethanol has softened the rubber could damage it.
The fuel gauge stays on full for a long time (about 60 miles, then starts dropping. When it reaches the halfway point, it starts dropping like a rock. I would not go much past 100 miles before filling up the gas tank. I have been places where I had to carry an extra gallon in the saddlebags.
