Does anyone know if the WR and YZ petcock change out? I've got the '02 YZ426 and would like to have the reserve in the woods.

Yep, I put the WR fuel tap in my YZ tank. Bolts straight in. As you've already heard, the only difference is the reserve setting. I know when I hit reserve, I better get the hell home asap.....Don't ask how I know.....:cry:

Nope, just two separate straws from which the fuel is pulled from. The "ON" straw sucks from higher in the tank, and the reserve sucks all the way to the bottom of the tank. I ran one in my YZ for a short time while I was waiting on a new YZ petcock. It fit, but not perfect, the "ON" straw is a lot longer than on the YZ part, and does hit the inside of the tank (don't think that bothers anything, though).
