I just went through a little fiasco with my petcock that I don't want anyone else to have to deal with! I was lead to the Yamaha Raptor petcock by searching on here, but it wasn't really presented as a definitive solution. Well,I think it's probably the most cost effective and perfect fitting petcock you can buy with GOOD quality.

My stock petcock started leaking 6 months ago and I bought a "brownfamilyracing" Ebay petcock that was recommended on here in several threads. Well that thing was a cheap Chinese piece of crap! I was underwhelmed with it from the start and wasn't surprised it only lasted months. The "custom" machining is BS, these look to be the cheapest made petcocks you can find anywhere and for $30 an absolute waste. I emailed the seller to let him know the part failed and he actually was going to stand behind the product but I decided I was DONE messing this little part and went to find a real solution.

It's either Pingle brand, Stock DR-Z400E, or this Yamaha Raptor one. The Yamaha is $30 all day long and is perfect! Here's a couple pics of it installed, and compared to the cheap ebay one.... and my petcock graveyard!

Yamaha on top... MUCH nicer in every way.

      So I thought I should create a new thread to dump my vlogs into for the few that do watch them.  If you didn't catch my vlogs from last year for 2017, check them out here -> 2017 NMA Series
      Season 2 is well underway for 2018.  This year I'll be racing the Open A class competing in both the NORCS and NMA off-road series as well as the Desert 100 and maybe some other races throughout the year.  If you got any questions or recommendations, lets hear them.  Enjoy!

      I bought a used 2009 DRZ400S that came with an extra Corbin seat that is extremely comfortable. Unfortunately as a tall rider the seat sits too low for me vs the stock seat. It is in excellent condition with a few wear marks shown in the pictures. Small holes on the back right side where I believe the fender rack might have rubbed it. A wear mark on the front left side that is just discoloration. Make an offer. Thanks!
