Rear tube was history, so I got a new one just incase I can get this to run....
Cleaned everything up, the rim, spokes, inside of drum, and backing plate/brake shoes. Bearings felt really good, so I'll leave them in untill I get new tires after I know this thing runs like I think it should.

any help on directing me to a total rebuild kit for the petcock or carbs would help me keep moving on this diversion from the bikes I should be working on.....



You can still also buy a new petcock complete from Suzuki (44300-31051), but the cost is a bit eye watering in the USA and Canada at $274 in USD - its cheaper in the UK by an amazing $125 USD for North American buyers (no VAT) which should cover the shipping and import tax with some change left over I think. You can also buy from Reiner in Germany for about $208 USD.

Can you tell me where to find that fuel tap for that price? I've check a few UK parts outlets...but none near that low price...

I did find this Kawasaki discontinued part... http://vintagekawasaki.com/webshop/inde ... ts_id=1140" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ...........but they want $82 for it......freakin crazy

Have word out to a connection in Japan to see if he can find a better deal

I found a well used fuel tap with a good diaphragm on ebay, as well as all the other parts I needed new in the package from SUZUKI. Total cost to rebuild, about $72
Now its time to rebuild the carbs....

The fuel tap is cleaned up now.....just need to locate a diaphragm.... Or find a entire new tap in the UK...if I can find one for $150 or less. Someone was in the tap before me, as some parts are missing......


Hello from the UK. This is funny, as i was thinking that, i wonder what the petcock front (tap) would look like zincked? so i got them all together, and as i have a small zincking kit, i gave it ago. Looks better me thinks? Just waiting for a kit (from the states) for one of the
taps, and if it goes well, i will buy 4 more? The 4th tap is for my gt75L (that I'm still to finish off) The last photo, shows 2 types of cleaning up the body's. 1st one is on the wire wheel, and the 2nd with a solvol autosol & a lemon bathroom cleaner mix. I think i like the wheel best. It depends on what finish you like? I will have a look in the garage, and see if i have one spare, to sell? I need the petcocks (taps you see) for my other project.

The two taps I had, neither had glue holding the old filters on. And when i put the new ones on, they fit snug without glue. Not sure if they need glue....?

I used my sand blaster cabinet, and filled it with ground up walnut shells, to clean up the parts... luckily the plating was still pretty good. No aqua blasters anywhere close to where I am.

The bike is running suprisingly very good considering how long it sat. The ebay carb kits I got, worked well, but the gaskets were hard as rock. So I had to get different gaskets, and also have found out that my floats are filling up with gas. So I need new floats, and I'll get new intake carb boots too, when I pull carbs off again. I did ride it about 7 miles just to get a feel for it, and I like it better than I would have ever guessed. Out of all the bikes I have, my girl friend say it's her favorite.....I guess it's a keeper then.

My new floats are in, along with a new battery, and the air box is on for the rest of the season I hope. Still needs head bearings, tires, chain, and a number of other things, to make me feel more confident I can go further than a few blocks without pushing it home. But I have put 30 miles on it so far, since my parts investment of around $300 total......

I finally got the lost title straightened out, so it is now legally mine.
Plates are on their way, along with more parts....put 250 miles on it shaking it down, testing how the basic motor is goin to hold up.
