Has anyone else here lost their fuel levers when riding and were unable to turn on reserve? I am one of the lucky ones that had to WALK the bike back because no one else was around :steamed:
Noticed mine missing as well Sat. When I got done riding for the day, went to turn it off and it wasn't there. Out of all the bike's and quads I've had this one has got to be the cheapest. Atleast to me it always felt like a junk design. I mean even the little 50cc I have has a solid pet cock lever-valve. When you turn, it just feels flemsy. Has any one done something in the lines of changing the valve to something more solid/durable?Lever, petcock

Order'd this one today, I'll will post if it works. If it dont it only cost about as much as the Honda screw did. So I won't be out much $.im pretty sure the same piece of a yfz450 will work and be short enough to stay with the tnk when removing it.. so loctite it in place and never remove it
Well as I posted before I lost my fuel lever. You probably get the picture
but I’m posting one anyways.
I was interested in a better or more sturdy lever. I tried the one for the YFZ450, as you can see from photo it was way to small. And also appeared to have a curve to it, instead of square like the Honda's.
So I looked at my Polaris, which had a similar lever. Also there was a spring around the long lever. I thought this may help the Honda lever feel more sturdy. It did help some, but I believe the thing that makes the Polaris feel sturdy is the rubber grommet on the frame where the lever goes through. Not sure how to add grommet, so I just went with a $1.49 spring.
Here's my parts along with spring used. And I know it's not blue locktite.
And finaly I have my fuel lever back.
And my cost was a bit high, but I bought local to avoid shiping cost. Anyone need those bottom two items let me know. As you can see I wasn't out to much to try them. I still would like a shorter lever, it wouldnt be that hard to reach under and turn. And I think it would be less vibration, and stay on better!
where did all my pictures go? I guess I moved or renamed the folder?
