Woody you may try to adapt a pingle if you can't find an original.you'll just have to remember to shut off the fuel when you park it since it isn't vaccum operated.

On a Used Original petcock with a Bad Diaphram you can make a solid gasket out of gasket material to replace the Diaphram and then crimp off the tall tube that goes into the tank.just run your petcock on Reserve and use on as the New off.I done mine this way since I am running aftermarket mikunis.

The GT500 & GT750 use the same o-ring for attaching the petcock to the tank. Its part # 44348-31051.
Looks likely that a GT750M-A petcock will work. Its still available for around $100.
Perhaps another forum member can confirm this?

Pingel also sells vacuum petcocks. Have one on my GT250.
It attaches to the older style T250/T350/T500/GT250 tanks without an adapter.
They sell adapters but I wouldn't know which one to use for the GT500.

Jughead, Where you been?. You didn't fall off the face of the earth --- or worse, get married?
