If you love stock parts, you'll really hate the clip on's which went out FEDEX about a half hour ago.:hmm: Tracking # is 273389815000929. Package I.D. is 0125412. and someone will have to sign when it arrives in 5 days. The nice lady at the local Package Store asked if I wanted insure the package, but since she'd already taken all my money and wouldn't accept an iou, we'll have to risk it.:grin:
I was going to PM you and then realized, I don't know how...:Idunno:

I'm looking for a petcock. I need one with 3/8" external threads and the outlet faces to the rear when mounted on the right side of the tank. So far all I can find is one made by Milwaukee twins on the J&P Cycles web site. The only problem is it's going to cost me $50 with shipping. Anybody know where I can find one cheaper? Or is the Milwaukee twins a decent quality item and I should just pony up the cash and buy it?
Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

I have been working on a 1975 kz 400 that I picked up for FREE (which is always the best price). Here's a few pics of the build as it is comming along. Since these I have painted the frame and am fabricating a 2 into 1 so I can run a single carb instead of the stock dual carb. After that I should be pretty close to done.

Here is the tank after paint alot of masking and a little hard work...

hopefully I will have it all together soon. But bouncing between this and my Volksrod (with most time being spent on the volksrod) makes progress slow.

Hey thanks for the link, I bookmarked the site for future reference. The petcock I need is just like the one shown but with the fuel nipple pointing to the left. Thank you for trying though :thumbsup:

Actually, I was refering to the comment by Max16v about tossing perfectly wonderful stock factory forks for a non-stock item.:blink::blink: With my Sporty I went a similiar route to what you're doing. The 35mm items went in exchange for an entire 38 mm front end from a `79 Kawi Cop bike, including the 18" front wheel and brakes. This was kind of funny because the Sporty is an `83, the Kawi was a `79, and both forks were maunfactured by Showa....go figure. The change in braking alone was worth the price of admission. I also run an 18" Kawi Cop wheel at the rear. One thing to check if you're running the Gold Wing brakes is the bore of the master cylinder of the 550. If you're running the Wing cylinder, all is well. The bore of the Sporty master matched the Cop item so there was no problem. If the bore of the 550 is slightly smaller (than the 'Wing) you'll be applying more pressure to the brakes; larger and they might feel kinda 'wooden.' It all depends on how much of a difference in bore.:smile:

Anybody got a good source of stainless spokes for stock '77 CB550 wheels (18", 19")? Having trouble locating any.

I found a good deal on some on ebay, but it lists them in the following sizes:
20x147mm
20x149mm
20x205mm
20x207mm

And bikebandit.com lists the sizes as:
8x144.5
8x144
8x202.5
8x203

Pretty close on the length, but I have no idea what the first number is... They have it listed as fitting on a CB550, but no years. Help?

For what it's worth I found a petcock from Debrix.com

Looks like the same one from Milwaukee twins but it's only $22.99 so with shipping it comes out to $35 total instead of $50
So I went ahead and ordered one. After I placed my order I found a thread on a Harley site saying that they suck to do business with so I'm crossing my fingers that I get it and that it is what it is supposed to be :wacko:
