eliminate the petcock?

Larry Picarello /

Looking for a simple fitting that will screw on to the threaded piece on the tank & will accept 3/16 fuel line.

Lawnmower inline shutoffs work fine for me, are readily available.

BTW, it's an Italian bike whatever those threads are...

Pretty sure Treatland did have one in the past but I'm not seeing it

Lamp parts standard lamp thread you can use pot pipes they have the same thread so you can get an elbow from the head shop and a small screw thread and you can put a line on it

Good idea if you want to come outside to your bike and find a tank full of fuel under the bike.

110% chance the petcock is a metric size because the bike was not made in USA Liberia, or Myanmar.

Just saying...

Of course you need a line valve to prevent what Moby is talking about because I know that all mopeds mark their territory...

I've had to use something other than a petcock because of clearance issues on a larger cylinder

Multiple mopeds listed on profile including 3 Laser 50 junk 4 strokes and complains about the cost of a petcock. Rob one from one of the bikes you are not riding.

Italian bikes do take the lamp thread just so you know so do Kawasaki it's weird because I was stuck on the side of the road the one time and all I had was a pot pipe necessity is the mother of invention...
