They were discontinued last year for the wings by K&L.
I don't know if they are the same on the Vaulk. Probably not as the have a different tank setup, no door.

You might check with wexyas he has them sometimes. They are getting hard to find. Send a PM to him and he can tell you if he has them available.

Can't be, surapong!! .... the Valkyrie's gas tank is a 'conventional' type of a gas tank that sits on top of the frame's main back bone and the fuel petcock is a pretty 'standard' type of affair, where the gas drains from the tank, down to the carbs!

Don't be misleading people!

Don't jump to conclusions Dusty.
They are both basically square, both are vacuum operated. I seriously doubt that surapong was trying to mislead anyone.

But… according to the part numbers I can find they won't interchange.

The Valk petcock being on the bottom of the tank really doesn't have a lot to do with it's operation…. if the Valk had a fuel pump the petcock could be anywhere. A perfect example are the old VT750's. They had a fuel pump and the petcock was on the right side cover area. It wasn't vacuum operated but the petcock is only a valve. Pump the fuel through it and it could be at the rear fender… if the fuel lines were long enough.

You're right, Ray!

I went back and had another good look at the parts fiche I posted and had a good look at #5, where they have a camera icon at the end of the part number. Click on that and it does indeed have what appears to be a vacuum assisted petcock, but it sure doesn't look like it, or the kitwould fit our wings.

I apologize surapong for being harsh with you. :bow:

Surapong….

the ad answers the question, down below the picture:


"This auction is for one (1) BRAND NEW K&L Fuel Petcock Repair Kit still in the original packaging. The photo is for illistrative purposes only. The Fuel Petcock Repair Kit sold in this listing will fit the following models:

Honda GL1500CF Valkyrie Interstate - '97-04
Honda GL1500CT Valkyrie Tourer - '97-00"

It will NOT fit the GoldWing. Please don't waste your money.

You may wish to convert your valve to an electric valve instead of vacuum operated.
They are cheaper than a petcock rebuild kit and won't suffer from gasohol.

Good advice Rudy. That is exactly what I plan to do if I need another one.

Dumb question but how do you change from a vacuum valve to electric valve?

You find a place to mount it.
You permanently plug the old vacuum line.
You wire the 12v leads to the aux power circuit or the running lights circuit.
You will need two brass hose couplers and some teflon tape.

Valve is open when the key is on and closed when the key is off.
