Petcock Valve

If the bolts are spinning you will have to drill off the bolt heads and extract the threads from the base inserts. Replace the petcock base o-ring, epoxy the base nuts into the tank body, install petcock. Or replace tank and valve. It's a choice of time or money.

Lets see if this works... I have a KTM 450 EXC 2009. It has 500 miles on it, so pretty new. I rode it all day yesterday(a little hard I must say) and all went well. I left it in my garage and during the...

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your KTM inquiry.
This happens sometimes. Usually it's one of two things:
  • You forgot to turn the gas lever off under the tank (Petcock).
  • The float valve stuck in the open position and allowed gas to drain out of the open petcock.
Bikes bounce around quite a bit sometimes mounted on the trailer on the trip home and if the petcock is open this happens. Sometimes the float valve sticks open. Noting serious just smelly and annoying and gets you in trouble with the wife. Tap on the float bowl with the handle of a screwdriver and it usually will shut off.
Hope this helps.
Kind regards,

2004 honda shadow 750 small hole at the bottom of the petcock valve is leaking fuel. Is it a small screw that fell out or a bad gasket, or?

Your petcock is vacuum operated. Gasoline leaking from the vent hole indicates that the vacuum diaphram is ruptured. A new petcock assembly is needed.

HD 1979 fatboy fuel petcock valve leaking

Replace the petcock. The rubber diaphragm is ruptured. I'd also bet your fuel mileage dropped cause the ruptured diaphragm is allowing raw fuel to be sucked into the intake manifold.

My KLX 125 2004 will turn over but wont idle

Might check: Air filter, choke malfuntion or sticking, dirty carb (idle circuit), valve adjustment, and sometimes a weak spark (cap, plug, wire). Could need a new top end (check compression after adjusting valves) or a vacuum leak in the intake manifold (cracks, petcock line off...not sure if this model uses a petcock vacuum shut off). Good luck.

Fuel leak at bottom of petcock valve 2000 fatboy

Sounds to me like a cracked fuel line. No leaks when sitting still but add the torque of the engine turning over and the vibration and the line flexes enough to leak. If not a fuel line, the weld may be cracked where the petcock mounts to the tank or the petcock itself may be cracked. Is the petcock water trap screwed on tightly?
