Petcock options

3 posts in this topic

I recently picked up an IMS 3.1 gallon tank from someone. It came with a cap and petcock, no clue what variety. The petcock is on/off only, no reserve. The guy had the tank for his YZ450F (05 I think), which means it should fit my 03 WR450 with the YZ shrouds (which he included). 


Are the cheap ebay petcocks any good? I can spend the $30ish for an OEM one but would prefer not. I know reserve isn't mandatory but it's nice to have, especially on a supermoto.

I wouldn't recommend the cheap china petcocks. For twice the $$ buy an oem one and know that it will last.

I bought one from motomart on ebay for $10. It might be Chinese made, but the shop is in CA. It fits perfect and have had no problems. Holding it up to the old OEM they look identical.

      For my 2001 XR650R
      Searched around, and found some information, but I need a little more.
      Looking at an after market tank, which works best? I plan to go with the red, and would like it to match the OEM color. I will be running a Scott's Damper , probably. Any clearance issues?
      What range are you averaging with a 4.3 gal?
      I have considered the seven gal behemoth from acerbis , though it looks too wide for my tastes. Though extra fuel is good, but adds weight. Yes I know you can run it low, so why not a smaller tank?
      I've had natural colored tanks before, but I'm not racing so no need to check level, on the fly.
      Pictures would be great!!!
      Anxious to find out what the BRP heads are using, and what works.

      I am wondering how many use the 4.6 tank? Is it bulky feeling when full, and how well does the design utilize all the fuel in the tank? Do you need to really tilt it over to get the fuel in the "reserve" over to the other side? Please comment if you can. Thanks...
