I thought about replacing them with a stock 05-06 WR oem petcock on the left and a stock 07-08 WR oem petcock on the right since the fuel outlet is opposite. I measured the attach bolt spacing and there the same. The problem is that the WR oem petcocks have dual reserve standoffs and use a large oval o-ring, where as the Acerbis petcocks only have one reserve standoff and a small round o-ring. You could oval out the hole in the tank, but the gasket surface seemed very rough on the Acerbis tank unlike the stock tank. I think it will leak and I don't want to take the risk.
I'm looking into possibly replacing them with stock screw type petcocks off a Husky 610. The Husqvarna part number is 800067440. The only problem is that they don't have a reserve and the fuel outlet would face inward towards the motor. I would rather have the fuel outlet facing aft. I'm going to check into some Husaberg or KTM petcocks next. I will post more info once I find something out that works.
