I just picked up a yamaha Qt50 that looks to have been sitting since 2000. Obviously the gas in the tank is bad and everything needs cleaned. My question is the petcock, it's in rough shape internally, can I install an inline filter and a cheap valve for now, or do I need to find a replacement petcock? I have already pulled and cleaned the carb and cleaned the tank as best I can without taking it off the bike.
Any thoughts would be appreciated
