I was thinking petcock was used more when Off - On and Reserve became standard.
Most fuel taps on early bikes were simple On/Off affairs.
Be it a small lever,a screwed thumb wheel with a needle and seat or even a simple pull out jobbie like this below.

We're close on reserve really ... 30 kms. is about 20 miles. I'm getting
10 to 15 miles.

Just messing with you guys. After I wrote it I kind of figured it out. Thanks though.
I think it looks more like a tap than a pet cock.

I've got 0.50s in my WPs and a 8.5 in my Ohlins and I'm 110 with riding gear on and its fine. Add luggage and it is still OK.

Try adjusting the clickers. Make big changes to one at a time to see if its the right way to go. Is your sag set correctly?
I've posted this setup info on UHE, might help.

"Good Ol' Boy" with panniers.

It's the technical term. I found it on Google.

Or "Good Ol' Texan Boy" without panniers.


The first Google hit was "Lard Ass" but I thought that was a bit unkind.

The IMS-supplied petcock is of questionable quality. I used it initially, and it wasn't long before it became difficult to turn on and off. It was at that point that I was nervous enough about it that I replaced it with the Raptor petcock. It took a little while to hog out the petcock hole in the bottom of the tank for it to fit, but it worked.

Now if I could just do something about that stupid up-turn on the FCR carb for the fuel line so I didn't have to loop the damn thing coming off the tank.
