Pingel\'s are shit. EVERYBODY MUST READ

people are always saying how great they are. well heres my experiance with 2. after getting home tonight from my paint shop (just wanted to rest) i go into my garage and just about got knocked on my ass by the gas smell. so i go searching for where the smell is comming from. found out it was the good old 93. i looked to make sure i remembered to shut off the pingel, sure as shit it was in the OFF position. i gathered my thoughts for a minute with the
look on my face. open the gas tanks and PLOW im missing 4 gallons of gas.
. im am now pretty pissed off. that pingel was untouched since last july when it was put on BRAND NEW, didnt even take it off when i painted the tank. the story on the 1st pingel was i could never get the damn thing to stop leaking, so i bought a new one. im glad that i spent 150 bucks on 2 junk pingels, 10 bucks for gas that went right into the oil. so back to the petcock i go. atleast i dont have to worry about turning that damn thing on and off. never again will pingel get my money.


so who has a site i can buy a petcock rebuild kit?

Like anything at leats one person in 10000 will have problems. I have had Pingles on all my bikes and currently have them on six bikes in the Garage. Some of them are 16 years old with no problems.
