Someone might not understand that it refers to the fuel system.
Could you adapt a electric petcock from a convert or G5 to fit ?? Harper has them
all this talk about vacuum, electric petcocks, fix the cause of the problem, the needle valve/seat or leaking float.
The reason it's gone on like this is the seats in those carbs aren't replaceable. Just guys offering work arounds.. <shrug>
Lots of bikes especially Japnese inline fours have used vacuum operated petcocks. They are not reliable. The vacuum operated diaphragm cracks and then the fuel doesnt shut off. You dont know it until you hit the starter button and the engine hydrolocks.Be a proper frugal Guzzi rider. Go to the hardware/lawnmower shop and get a $5 Briggs & Stratton fuel shutoff valve. Works a charm.
you're not concerned excessive fuel won't pass by when running?
Yogidozer,I think you mean if it wont flow sufficient fuel to keep the float bowls full when running WOT.?.. I dont know, thats an interesting possibility ,so I will experiment with it soon, I ordered one of the 3 way vacuum operated fuel valves on ebay, and plan to give my idea a try, with this 3 way fuel valve. I plan to go from both petcocks to a T then a length of hose to the 3 way valve inlet, then two hoses out from the valve's 2 exits to each carb. This way, I can use my sugar cube petcocks the usual way, with the left one being"reserve" etc. but if I ever forget to turn off my petcocks, I should not have a flooded mess a couple of days later if the needle valve fails to seal. I will let you all know how it turns out.Rick.
