So, i was doing some research last night on the tw200 petcock, because I believe i'm having fuel issues from wot for too long, causing loss of vacuum to the fuel valve! I've heard of using the tw200 and it being a direct fit, but there were questions as to whether it would flow enough fuel to feed our 750's? Me being the curious person I am, I decided to see if there were other options?!
I went to my favorite microfische website and pulled up the tw200 petcock! Then I clicked on the gasket number and it brings up everything that uses the same gasket number, which should mean having the same bolt pattern! What I found is that the 96 virago 750, the xvz1300 and xvz1600 all use the same o-ring, so I pulled them up on ebay and it looks like a slightly better design, and NO VACUUM! I am assuming here, but I would think if that petcock could feed the virago 750 even up to the xvz1600 then it SHOULD be ok with OUR 750's, any takers? Ideas?
Here's one on ebay: Virago Petcock
Or how about this one from a xvz1300!!! xvz1300 petcock
and this from the xvz 1600 xvz1600 petcock
Only thing I can think of is maybe if the fuel pickup tubes would be too tall for our tanks, or throw off the reserve amount, meaning it goes to reserve at 2 gallons rather than 1 gallon? I'll do some more research on those bike's tank sizes!
