Question for 05 R owners

Recommended Posts

Ok I just read through Hecklers post on checking your valves and noticed something. It's not a big deal but I noticed that his petcock is facing outwards. On my 05 it is facing inwards, so to read it you have to look at it from the other side of the bike. Is the petcock put on but the dealer when they assemble it or is this a new idea by Big Red to flip them around? :thumbsup: Just curious.

It's supposed to face inwards. I've seen people flip 'em around but see no reason to do that. Don't want to run out of gas at the wrong moment :thumbsup: 'cuz my leg turned off the gas.

mine was inward, but i turned it around. if my boot gets in such a position to turn off the gas underneath there, then i've got bigger problems!
