Who's Rebuilt the "Petcock"

I'm looking at this little project & I've found a few vauge refrences to a rebuild kit. I however can't find a kit anywhere. No real suprise. I also am not sure of what parts to buy to rebuild it looking at the schematic. A little help would be great. Thanks.

"Itemized list and cost of repair, $26.32. Having it in the Verses, priceless!"

I bought a rebuild kit (a couple of 'em actually) from someone in Canada, eh? Cost about what you've got for your total. I'll see if I can find the link from eBay - it just ensured that I didn't miss any parts.

Hey kanuck, when you get those parts, could you measure the ID, OD and thickness of the rubber O-rings, and post the specs. They may be available in any generic O-ring selection at the local auto store, if we have the specs to check. Could save a few $, or more important - riding time on a nice weekend.

My calipar is metric, so some will have fun with that. I took a second glance at the micro, yeah, those o rings don't have a labeled size.

This should be the part number for the K&L Petcock Repair Kit for the vn750: 18-2723
it can be found here on ebay for around $23 and I have found it at several local Kawasaki dealers fo a few bucks more.

This pic of the K&L kit does not include the diaphram valve spring (#92081), that slimvr refers to does it ?
Question for any one who has rebuilt a petcock-How necessary is it to relace that spring during a rebuild?

I'm not sure about the spring, but if you get a generic O-ring, be sure it's chemical resistant. Some cheap O-rings wont last long in gasoline.

Oh, and Kanuck, whatever value you get on metric calipers, just divide that by 25.4 to get English measurements

Ex.... 4mm divided by 25.4 = .157in.

Or another conversion factor is to multiply by .03937

Ex.... 4mm times .03937 = .157in

Quite honestly I'd sooner pay abit more & have an o-ring I knew was "good to go" & not rot on me. I'll measure the rings anyway. Just for info sake.
