I've already got a pingle ... save your typing fingers.

However, it is too friggin big, and hits the top of the carbs in my frankenbike. (Bandit 1200, more or less, except for an '88 GSXR 750 head, which makes it TALL).

On the Pingle, the outlets are angled downward at about a 45 deg. angle. Can they be moved safely? I have already got a call in to Pingle, but they don't work weekends.

Or, how about a Bandit 1200 petcock? Will it work? I have a friend who already has one...

It's good to have friends. ;')

Do not try to move the outlets as they are pressed into position.

You can try to space the end of the gas tank to raise it a little with some washers where the tank bolts down in front of the seat

Umm is this bike a GSXR or Bandit? Tank and frame?

The above is based on an 88 GSXR 750 tank and frame

I too have the same problem. Although I think
I may be in a bit more bother than you, my carbs
clear my tank with about 5mm to spare, of course
the tops of them a right at the tank outlet. I
am probably going to run a pingel in line tap.
Then all I need bolted to the tank is a pipe.



This can be mouted elsewhere on the bike
(hopefully somewhere accessable).

Just an idea to bounce around.

Adrock,
That is a fantastic idea! I can't believe I couldn't see that one...

I'll have to run down to the hardware store and see what I can manufacture; something with a 90 deg. bend in it, and with the threads... It should be a piece of cake!

Oh, and this is an '88 750 frame, and an '88 750 tank, which I have spacered both front and rear until the tank BARELY stays inside the front of the tail section! You should see how buggered up my K&Ns are to fit inside the frame. ha.

Don't get me started on air filters(oops, too
late). I can't fit any K&N's in between my
frame, motor and fairings. The only ones that
will fit are BMC and they are impossible to find
(I bought one to test it out, and can't find
three more to complete the set).

Whoever said modding a bike was a walk in the park
obivously doesn't walk through there at night...

Ranting over...Good luck with the petcock.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">You tried calling Factory Pro for the BMC filters? That's where I got mine from.

That's my next step, I have tried all other means
in my backward little country (Australia). Just
because we're surrounded by water and pretty much
everything good has to come from a long way away,
added with that the fact our dollar is worth what
it's printed on, stuff is either hard to get or
prohibitively (guess on spelling) pricey. Thanks
for the heads up though, I'll have to get in touch
with them.

BTW, I'm not really such a whinger, just a bit
grumpy after 13 hours at work....


I must be suffering from withdrawel from looking
at my bike, if only things got done by just
looking my bike would have beeen done years ago.

Pull your tank, then take off the rubber cushion from your frame (in the V that your tank slides over) and turn it over. You will find that it raises the front of your tank about 10mm then use spacers to raise the rear until it is level. While the tank is off turn the adapter for the Pingle around to offset it to the front. This will work on your 88 it worked on mine (88 750 with 91 1100 and 88 750 head with 38 Mikuni Flatslides) As long as you evenly space tjhe tank it looks stock.
