Re: making my own petcock
Cody, I am glad that you are creative and willing to think outside the box. It is, however, your economic status that drove you to do so, and some generous members who saved you.
Take it from someone who has seen plenty of bikes go up in flames from poor choices, seen garages with racebikes burn down due to backfire through throttle body, ridden methanol fueled bikes and had to deal with invisible flames on the track, dump can fires in endurance racing, etc....... Let the factory design the some things, a petcock is one of them.
Deal with the jokes without the comebacks, roll with it. You ought to expect it on gdc. It's tough love here. When people don't care, they don't given you parts, and they don't even give you a hard time.
In 20 years, when you have ridden more miles on the track than on the street, and can't remember all the bikes you have crashed, you will understand.
