Default Re: New Cow for the Slaughter

Those smaller Yamaha tanks do lend themselves to bikes. I've used 2 Yamaha MX-80 tanks. The look good and mount easily.

If that petcock is unusuable you can tap the fitting for a 1/8" pipe thread. If yours is like the two I have the petcock is externally threaded and replacements are hard to find. But a 1/8 pipe tap will thread the inside of the tank fitting so you can thread a nipple or male petcock into it.

Good luck.
