    Hi guys,

    doing some things on other Twins 🙂
    The B2, 1977, I grabbed in the Netherlands was standing for at least 10 years.
    The petcock is looking like that 🙁
    Dismounted it and soaked it for a while.
    Today I dismantled it.
    Ok, everything is dirty inside.

    But there are parts I doubt they are original.
    Two small bolts, a spring (of a ballpoint?) and a modified petcock handle ?
    What do you think ?


    I think you Need to swap that for a real fuel tap. Can help if needed.?


    I have cleaned and refurbished that petcock with a simple O-ring set which is offered for that.

    Within several weeks or just some months it was that sticky and hard to operate, that I broke off the lever ;-(

    Does anyone have a usable petcock for a B ?
    Don’t mind if it is dirty, but lever must move easily 😉

    Cheers, Michael
