DRZ: Pingel Petcock Replacement

Recommended Posts

So my OEM petcock went bad (o-ring). Instead of replacing the o-ring whenever I leak fuel, I was looking at a Pingel.

 

This is what I'd order: http://www.pingelonline.com/dirt-atv-fuel-valves/6190-ah61av-single-outlet-on-off-hex-finned-valve-1-4-npt-6000-series-90-degree-5-16-hose-barb-with-adapter-aluminum.asp

 

Questions:

1. I would need to shorten the bolts to attach it to tank? Anyone know how long the bolts should be for the Pingel?

2. Is there a gasket between the Pingel petcock and the tank?

3. Should the outlet (coming downward) be towards the front of the motorcycle or the back?

 

Any help is appreciated. I don't want to be hydrolocked after I store my cycle.

Called Craig at Pingel and he answered all my questions.

 

For those of you interested in ordering as well:

1. Bolts would need to be shortened. Unsure of measurement, but could certainly be mocked-up.

2. There is a gasket, similar to stock included.

3. Outlet (facing downward) is opposite of on/off lever

Thats $$$ and doesn't have any reserve. Why not just use a Raptor petcock?

Or if you don't like how the raptor petcock routes the fuel line then an E model petcock would be a good replacement.

I didn't think that I needed a reserve. I generally run 100 miles on my DRZ and fill up anyway. On/off seemed like it would be simplest and most user-friendly. I just have to decide what to do with my vacuum line now though.

You don't "NEED" a reserve, but it is nice to have.

 

As for the vacuum line, follow it back to where it connects to the carb, remove it, and put a vacuum cap on the port.

The vacuum line should just pull right off? Also, where can I get a vacuum cap? Any motorparts distributor?

Yup it should just pull off. Any auto parts store should carry vacuum caps, auto zone, car quest, etc.

Thanks as always Wisconsinite. 2-day delivery on my Pingel so I will have to update later.

Sorry Jack, I already ordered mine with 2-day shipping. I'll certainly let you know if I think it's worth you putting on your DRZ though!

Wow that thing is very small compared to the stock one, gives you lots of choke switch clearance.
