I have an OEM gasket for the pre-'87 petcocks, Jeff. If you are up to the task of installing it, (and no, that's not a challenge) you may have it.
It takes considerable drilling, grinding and tapping to disassemble and fix those little devils.
If it was my ride I would fix the defect.My shut off valve is letting gas flow in the off position.
I have a leaky float valve.

A leaking float valve is washing the oil out of the cylinder and tanking fuel mileage.:sadguy:
This is a case where money spent will come back in fuel savings.:?
I picked the one I did because I wasn't sure how well the plastic ones would hold up in the heat from the engine. If it quit working so would the bike.Plastic or metal body won't matter. A streetbike is light duty in application.
Take your pick.
I've ordered from China with no problems in the past. Probably a few dozen times thereabouts. I've waited up to a few weeks at times for delivery though. Depends on fast you want it as to what you'll pay.
Sometimes a auction is the way to go depending on what you want.
