With that being said I will say that I ran a 1/8" pipe tap into the threads on a tank and successfully installed an 1/8" petcock. Maybe I got lucky so I wouldn't suggest you try it unless you want to take a chance. Dax and Sick Bike Parts carries replacement petcocks with the proper thread and gasket.
Eh I kinda figured it would be metric threading.I don't have $15 bucks to spare on a valve,so I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.Very informative 2Door Thank you!
