Yamaha Fuel Cock Mod

Recommended Posts

I picked up this 2008 DRZ400 SM that had the carb swapped out. So the vacuum line for the shut off valve was not hooked up.

 

I bought the Yamaha FUEL COCK ASSY 1 (5LP-24500-01-00) as recommended on this forum.

 

I guess because of the big bad ass carb this valve would not fit my bike.

 

The output nozzle comes out on the right of the valve as opposed to straight down like the stock one. 

 

Well that nozzle was going right into the choke of the carb ?

 

So I had to remove the stock fuel cock spacer.

 

Cut the lever short to clear the tank.

 

Drilled out the left side of the valve.

 

Removed and plugged the output nozzle on the right with a copper plug.

 

Installed the 90 degree nozzle from the stock carb into the left side of the valve.

 

This was alot of work to change a valve but I guess this is what happens when you start modding...and this carb is probably not the best choice but came with the bike. 

 

Anyways I now have a working fuel cock with a reserve.

 

Just thought I would share.
