Steamer petrol tap rebuild kit ?

Hi all - Part of my fuel leak issue is the PetCock -slow drip even when turned off. Anyone found a source for a re-build kit? ( Sprint Manufacturing don't cover these )
Thx

Its the plastic cone that directs the flow of fuel that wears out, common fault on the Steamers.
You can get a Pingel fuel tap, but pricey at around £90.
Alternatively, you can use one of these for around £30 delivered, from Ebay USA.


YAMAHA WR400F WR425F WR450 FUEL PETCOCK GAS TANK SWITCH

Me and a couple of other Steamer owners are using this with no problems.

Thx RF9Rider - do they bolt straight on - mounting hole c-to-c, reserve tube etc ?

Looks like I need one of these or else the dearer Pingel units
