Question about 1978 Suzuki GS 750 E
I have a 1980 gs 1000 it was missing the fuel tank, when I replaced it the petcock has two hose connections, one appears to be some sort of valve in the petcock? the replacement tank came off a GS 750 that may have been a year earlier? Do I need both of those connections for the fuel on my 1000?
On the one that has two hoses does it still have an "Off" position? Usually petcocks that have two hoses, one goes to the carb vacuum, and the other is for a fuel supply for the engine. That way it only allows fuel to flow when the engine is running. I have found these to be a poor design and can often leak and allow fuel to run into the engine if your carbs are acting up. If the replacement only has one hose, then it will work fine, just be sure to cap off the vacuum port on the carb.
