I have both bikes in hand but my LC50 is missing the petcock, I checked on Ebay but I won't pay several hundred USD dollars for a simple petcock, both petcocks have a diaphram with a vacume hose, both petcocks have a "RESERVE" hose entry and an "ON" hose entry, in other words, both have the same number of hoses plugged with the same fonctions, the only difference between the 2 petcocks is that the LC50 one has an "ON , RESERVE, OFF" lever but the FA50 petcock has an "ON, RESERVE, PRIME" lever instead, but I take it as an improvement since the LC50 is hard to start after a few days with it's orginal petcock because the petcock needs the vacuum to push the diaphram to let the gas flow to the carburator but not the FA50 petcock, it has the "PRIME" lever position which lets the gas flow to the carb by gravity at start.

As for mounting the petcock on the bike goes, I'll have to check more closely but both seem to have 2 scews at about the same spot with the same angle to them.

I wanted to know if someone here ever tried using a FA50 petcock on a LC50 before trying this myself.
