This was SUCH an awesome purchase. SO cheap compared to buying from Honda....or even buying a used one. I was skeptical about its fit and function but was glad to see it was solid. This was installed in my 1993 Honda Nighthawk. A couple of things to note. 1) when I got mine the inlet tube was loose from the valve. I had to reduce the diameter of the end so it would go back in firmly. 2) I had to rotate the vacuum line attachement. This is easy enough...4 screws, turn it 90 degrees, and you're done. I could have also just used a longer vac hose. 3) I had to trim the main inlet tube down some. If you leave it how it is, you will need to switch to reserve a good bit earlier than your stock valve. So I made the new tube the same length as the original. You could make it shorter to avoid reserve longer, but will diminish your reserve capacity. Otherwise its working great. No leaks, nice and smooth. Would recommend!
Replaced my OEM petcock and works perfectly. I had an issue with my '96 Nighthawk 750 bogging down at higher speeds or when the gas tank was low. Pulled the petcock and the straw filter inside was very deteriorated which wasn't letting fuel through. OEM filter replacement is a ridiculous $30 for a small plastic tube. The aftermarket petcock includes a new filter so I just swapped the whole thing. No problems post-install after riding for a couple of hours. I checked carefully and its not leaking anywhere.
One thing to note is that compared to OEM, the ON position tube that extends up into the gas tank is much longer on the aftermarket petcock. That means that the main gas tank will be smaller and the reserve tank quite a bit bigger. Not sure of the volumes yet as I haven't gone through a full tank but its something to be aware of.
When I first ordered this part I read the reviews and it seemed like a good purchase. When it arrived in the mail there was no o-ring for the fuel screen. The sellers were prompt and they shipped me a new screen and o-ring immediately. I had to wait 2 weeks for it but that's not a big deal if my issue is being solved. It did fit directly onto my 97 Nighthawk gas tank so I was pleased. However, there was a slow drip. Just enough to leave a puddle and have the garage smelling heavily of gasoline. I meticulously took it apart and checked the internal seals. I made sure everything was back where it was and tightened down properly and now it leaks worse than it did before. Maybe I just happened to get a bad part. Maybe I just had bad luck with this one item, but I will be spending the money for an OEM petcock.
