fast flow petcock
« on: September 28, 2009, 11:02:35 pm »
some help if anyone would be kind enough? ive done a search, alas no luck
ive bought some Keihin CR's for my CB550 with K&N filters and a mikuni type push pull throttle.
Will the OEM petcock be up for job or do I need to swap out the petcock for a fast flow type?
If so, could anyone recommend one? cheers

If your stock petcock is in good shape it will flow plenty fast enough.
