Need link to tw200 petcock

If someone can post a quick link to the correct petcock that would be great. I saw this on Amazon, is it correct?

Nope, no link. I want to make sure I'm buying the correct item. If you search on tw200 you get all kinds of petcocks for all kinds of bikes.

Link to the "correct" petcock

http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oe.../fuel-tank-1-3


51023
TAP-ASSY,FUEL
51023-1187 51023-1392
$66.82

This is the "correct" OEM Petcock for the VN750 from Kawasaki Parts House. It is a vacuum-operated petcock that does not allow fuel to flow without the engine providing a vacuum and is designed as a "safety" feature to prevent the tank from leaking fuel into the carburetors in the event of internal petcock diaphragm failure.

The TW200 is a Yamaha part with no vacuum ports but will bolt onto our tanks and with some simple modifications and will work and has worked for several other folks.

It basically depends on whether you want to spend $70 on the "correct" part or spend $20 and locate some other supplies and then spend some time modifying and plugging lines from the carburetor in order to make the TW200 work on your bike.

I replaced mine with the "correct" part years ago.

But it will work with some modification. Either way, it is your bike and the beauty of it is that you can do whatever you want to it!

I must have been confused as your original post asked for a link to the correct part and then you mentioned the TW200 which is not the correct part but is workable. I apologize for not providing you the information you wanted in the original reply.

TW200 that I used

I went to the Yamaha shop an ordered part number
"23F-24500-20-00" YA PHP Fuel Cock Assy.

It cost me including tax $22.14
When I looked at it I thought this might not work. It looks like there is no way it will pass enough fuel. I think we over estimate how much fuel we need to deliver. It runs beautifully. You just got get used to shutting the petcock off when you leave the bike for any length of time. It quickly becomes part of riding the bike. I would do it again.

New to me 2004 15k Last liscened in 2011. Stock as they come.

On its way! This will also make it a little less complicated to synch carbs by removing a T connection FYI.
