Fuel taps or petcocks can be purchased second-hand extremely cheaply from motorcycle wreckers, dismantlers or salvage yards.

Either take your old one with you or take an aluminium foil impression from the tank petcock mounting area. (bolt spacing and o-ring size etc.)

Ask for same or similar model at first to guage availability. Just be aware of the height difference between fuel on and reserve inlet stems.

Bike runs when you pour gas in carburetor but won't pull from the tank, there is gas in the tube that feeds the carbs.

two things. could be that peacock is plugged or there is sometimes a vacumm on the peacock coming from the carbs that sucks the peacock open allowing fuel to flow from the tank. if that hose has a hole in it it will not open the peacock. hope this helps.

The best I can offer is a 1980 GS1000. Ninety eight percent of the 1980 manual applies to your 1978 bike. The biggest differences are in fenders, gas tank, decals, trim and seat designs. Go to the site below for a free download.

I have a 1980 suzuki gs1000 g. clutch?

Drain the oil and install a new oil filter. Dirty, gritty oil can make a clutch act this way. After the oil change , ride the bike for an hour or so. Now drain the oil a second time. Doing this will flush most all of the grit from the engine.

FYI > Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. Most all of the manuals are in English.3bed404.gif

FYI > Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Car not getting fuel

If it is a 1980 Caddy it either has a carburetor or throttle-body fuel injection( V864, if it's fuel injected you might need a new fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator ) and you can remove the aircleaner lid and pour a little gas down the carb (hold the choke plate open with a screw driver placed between choke plate and carb air horn) or throttle-body. It might take a few tries before the fuel pump fills the float bowl up on the carb for it to keep running. If the cars has really old stale gas in the tank you might need to drain it and refill with fresh gas. Change the fuel filter and add a can of fuel injector-carb cleaner to the gas tank.

Inline fuel filter

The fuel filter assembly is inside the gas tank. Don't touch it. I have an expensive manual on the car and the procidure involves by the way lifting of the whole car and slowly (on a jack lowering the gas tank). I was quoted a price for the laber from a suzuki dealership 400-500. Must be done every 120k miles.
Why? Cause your tank fills with rust
Does it accumulate from staff coming from the gasstation? No, it is your own tank rusting, being eaten , and palstic seals on your fuel pump also, by ethanol from the cheap gas you have been using.
I excuse you since I myself didn't know about it, and I also have the same problem.
When you give the car to the mechanic , much better to a Suzuki dealership ask them!!! also to change the gas tank air filter.
What? Airfilter in the tank? Why change it?
The manual says so, and ... by the way that cheap gas with the ethanol may have something to do with it, aaa... like ethanol being part of the alchochols and evaping way too fast in a sommer day.
If you don't stop using gas with ethanol, then... you are eventually in for a bill over 1000 for including new fuel pump, that you also can not install yourself.
