Yamaha Raptor Petcock is perfect DRZ / part # 5LP-24500-01

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.

      From an 06 400sm. Shrouds are new. They had graphics on them. I decided to go a different route. PayPal and you pay shipping.

      On my 2008 rmz 450, at 1/4 throttle there's this horrible studder. It started about a month ago. The bike has about 70 hours on it i bought it later last year and never had a problem with it. The only thing that i changed on it was the header pipe it had the stock one and i tweaked it where it was making a weird noise so i replaced it with a stock one.
      Things i have tried............................
      New spark plug
      Cleaned the air filter 
      Oil change 
      Checked the valves one exhaust is on the loose side but not out of spec.
      I may try injector cleaner but idk if thats ok for these bikes.
      Any help is appreciated thanks in advance
