    Hey just finished ear shave and went to reinstall the petcock on my tank and the gasket leaks. Where is the best place to buy a new petcock to tank gasket or a new petcock. Any tips? Thanks in advance šŸŗ
  2. Carbs and Fuel System
    Hi all, first post here. I searched around for a few days and found nothing on this, so please let me know if someone has asked this question before and I will go there. I am currently working on a 1991 VN750 US model and I am almost ready to get it on the road. All that's left (that I know of...
  3. Carbs and Fuel System
    I'm so glad I found this site. I have a problem with the new bike I have. It is a conversion to a bobber so no air filters on each carb just a breather vent k&n. I discovered allot of rust in the tank and had to acid it and rinse thoroughly. I also had to put a new petcock valve, I dont...

    So, I recently laid my bike down at high speed and I went from smelling gas, to a visible leak out of the petcock. Now it could be just not seated firmly because of the accident, but I don't think so. It only leaks when the engine is running and in the ON position. Any thoughts? I know, pretty...

    My petcock is leaking on my used bike. It seems like it is leaking from every place it possibly could be but I'm going to try to replace the O ring at the top to see if it fixes it anyhow. In the event that I do need to buy a new one is there one anyone recommends? The strange thing is that mine...

    Replaced my stock petcock because one hose kept popping off. So far I have no issues with it at all. I can see where there will be no difference in fuel flow as the tube in the tank is the EXACT same size as the stock. So there is your bottleneck. But I haven't yet haven't really pushed it...

    Hi everyone. Quick background... Just starting riding about 2 months ago and bought a 85 Kawasaki Vulcan 700. I absolutely love riding and it's killing me that my bike has been out of commission for 2 weeks now. I'm new to this site also! Rode bike for about 6 weeks, with little problems...
  11. Carbs and Fuel System
    Hello All! I just bought a 2nd hand '94 Vn750. Love the bike so far. But I have a problem. It starts/idles ok, once I ride it the bike begins to lose power almost if it's out of fuel!. Eventually it gets so starved that it dies. The whole process takes about 10 miles. After I let it sit for an...

    I need a petcock for a 1986 vn750, the local store wants 91.96 for theirs. Anybody got an extra they want to sell, or know of a place to get one for a reasonable amount? Thanks for any help.

    Hello all, I need to replace the petcock, it is leaking from everywhere and I don't think just the repair kit will fix it. :doh: so, my question is, is there any other petcock that you would recommend instead of the OEM? cheaper, better, etc!! :confused: thank you all.
