OK I've been reading all these posts about changing out the mysterious fuel petcock the last several years. Most seem to develop a fuel leak of some kind that triggers the need to do this. My reason is a little different. On the way to th

    Thanks Dave. Its nice to know that there are other symptoms other than the stink. I've repaired one petcock and the next time it leaked I went with the tee. The next bike got a tee even though it wasn't leaking, and the present bike still has

        I'm hoping to get my brass T put on Monday, with help from another iPCRC lister. My question is: what are people using to plug the end of the small vacuum tube that goes from the left side carb to the petcock? -Scott --- In

          A tight fitting screw will work. Or you could be OCD about it, remove the hose and replace it with an identical plug and clamp as the one on the front carburetor. Juan Fairbanks, Alaska Sent from my iPhone On Oct 23, 2010

        Douglas, What exact part have you been trying to order? Try Honda Part #16953-ME5 025, it lists about $34. Fred --- In

          Fred, I was futzing around with the K&L rebuild it because I kept misplacing the Honda part number. If I can manage to not lose this number before tomorrow, I won't have that problem anymore :-) Cheers! Douglas --- In

            Douglas, If you are ordering it mail order, not your local Honda dealer, I would call Service Honda, !-800-828-5498, to make sure they haven't changed, updated, the number, I always call when I order to make sure there are no problems or orde

              Fred, Just placed the order over the phone with them. Didn't realize how much easier it is to find your part numbers, call them to confirm, and place the order right then and there as compared to the online routine where there might be tw

        The usual reason for a petcock is to keep fuel from running into the carbs if the needle valves don't seal well or if the bike tips over. Anybody know if the PC fuel pump will prevent flow, rendering the petcock redundant? If not I'd sure wan
