GL1500SE '94 compatible petcock kits

Post by DemonDNF »



This kit at Cyclemax (https://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500 ... 4102/20457) is not available to us Canadians until USPS calms down (unless you want to pay a huge Fedex cost):


Fortnine lists this (https://fortnine.ca/en/all-balls-petcoc ... it-60-1300), but the image is not quite the same:


Is it because they placed both rubber seals on top of each other? Or Fortnine is out in left field with the compatibility?

Partzilla doesn't seem to carry a petcock kit, that I could see (https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/honda ... /fuel-tank).

I just found this (https://www.saber-cycle.com/cgi-saber-c ... /order.cgi) over at SaberCycle:





Looks like the CycleMax model.

This has OEM 16970-MN5-023, and that matches with the Partzilla number (https://www.partzilla.com/product/honda/16970-MN5-023).

But the shape of the smaller rubber seal doesn't seem to match, although that could just be the angle of view and image quality.

This one at WingStuff (https://wingstuff.com/products/34178-fu ... repair-kit) looks practically identical to CycleMax, but I can't share the image link.

This one at DarkHorse "looks" kinda like CycleMax (https://www.ebay.ca/itm/312663135481?ha ... #vi-ilComp):






Was hoping you folks could steer me to the "best fit".

Buy from Cyclemax. It is the correct one. I think most people would advise against dealing with Saber Cycle.

I really wish I could, they are awesome! From their Home page, also the reason I listed in my top post.


Notice to International Customers

Additional surges of the Covid-19 virus have led to unprecedented delays in international transit via USPS. Due to this situation, we have opted to suspend international USPS shipments. Once the transit times are reduced to a reasonable level, we will re-open international deliveries via USPS. As always, you may submit an order for an international quote via FedEx.



I got a Fedex quote, insane, they charge for a big 25lbs box for international no matter what is inside.

That's why I'm looking for a "reasonable" alternate for the time being.

Sorry. I didn't take into account your location. This pandemic has really thrown a wrench into everything.

Perhaps Wing Stuff will send it through the Post Office. Those fees shouldn't be too terrible.

K&L Supply https://www.klsupply.com/ is the manufacturer of these petcock repar kits https://www.klsupply.com/carb-fuel/fuel ... r-kits.asp

The rebuild kits have been sporadic in availability over the last decade. In some cases, owners were buying complete new petcocks or switching over to a Pingel or other brand that is either vacuum or electrically operated.

IMHO, I would bypass the petcock completely before I bought one from Saber.

I split my order of parts between PartZilla and WingStuff, neither having everything I wanted.

I know I'm gonna get hit on shipping, but hey, not any other option except going to a dealer, and that ain't happening if I can help it.
