How do I change the fuel petcock on my 2000 FLSTC?
The Enricher is only there for starting the bike as it makes the fuel mixture too rich. Over use causes carbon deposits to build up and this can cause more problems.
The Petcock is a 'Screw On' fitting. First disconnect or remove the battery to prevent any accidental sparks.
**NOTE** Do this outside or in a very well ventilated area.
Cover the side of the COLD engine with a plastic sheet to protect from splashes of fuel.
Next drain the fuel tank. ALWAYS make sure the gas can you fill into is bigger than you need to prevent overspill. Use an extra long piece of fuel line so you can stand the gas can on the floor as it might take a while to empty. Set the petcock to Reserve as it feeds from lower in the tank. Remove the filler cap and put it to one side until you are finished fitting the new part. (Faster flow when your emptying and better ventilation when working).
An extra option is to put some masking tape on the underside of the tank to prevent scratching the paint. It might be easier to disconnect any fuel line at the petcock before removing it.
Using a suitable wrench unscrew the nut between the tank and the top of the petcock. It should twist towards the front of the bike.
**NOTE** Watch for any fuel dripping from the hole as you slide the petcock down and out.
Refitting.. Before fitting unscrew the mounting nut on the new petcock so it spins freely. This allows it to grab more threads when fitted giving a better fuel tight fit.
Clean the threads and hole on the tank with a rag. (Safely dispose of the rag when finished). Set the new tap to the OFF position. Carefully slide the filter body into the tank so you don't damage the filter mesh. Position the tap to the correct angle, (it doesn't have to be exact). With you fingers push the petcock firmly into position and wind the nut into place until it is finger tight. Then using a suitable wrench turn the nut until it is firmly tight. DO NOT over tighten the nut. This will strip the threads and leak fuel all over you and the engine.
Connect your fuel lines and fill the tank with about half a litre of fuel and open the petcock to the Reserve position. This is to test for any obvious leaks. Refill the tank to full, refit the fuel cap, and recheck all your pipes and connections. If you had any drips or spills Clean them up properly. Reconnect the battery and take you bike out for a run getting her up to working temperature. On your return recheck all your pipes and connections. Job done.
