    Please help with fuel pet-cock install

    Bought an oem Yamaha fuel petcock on ebay.
    Took it out of box and noticed it has a clear piece of rubber tubing over the longer strainer. Is this just there for packaging so strainer doesn't get damaged? The short strainer doesn't have it over it.

    Also I noticed some other aftermarket strainers on eBay come with to tiny o rings and 2 red washers. Do I need to purchase them as well? My oem came with rubber gasket but not the little o rings and washers. Thanks for any info

    A) if that tube isn't gas resistant, it will be flotsam [ or is it jetsom] in the tank. Take it off before install.
    2) That tube [my opinion] is for shipping protection. Prolly on the longer one since it will likely rub the package more than the short one.

    I think all you need is the rubber gasket. They ship with what they [most commonly] need, or if none is in the box/package, you have to order it. Sounds like you have what you need.

    That is packing to protect the fine filter if it does not have a built in O-rings on the petcock and you are putting on stock metal tank you will need the o-rings.

    The oem pet cock that arrived has the shaped gasket attached to it. But I stumbled over an aftermarket tdub pet cock that has 2 mini o rings and also some rubber washers? Here is a pic of the after aftermarket one that comes with 2 mini o rings and 2 red washers.
    Do I need to purchase them separate? Thanks

    Toss the tube. It's packing material, for protection.
    You don't need O rings. Your original screws will have washers on them, between the screw head and the petcock. The new gasket seals everything up.

    Thanks so much!

    Does the tank have to be removed or just pump out the gas?

    It would be a lot easier to just remove the tank. It's only one bolt (after the seat is off )

    I drained the gas out of the tank on the bike with the petcock and fuel hose into a empty gas can. then removed the tank.

    Well, if you drained the tank, you don't have to remove it, but I've never replaced or rebuilt a petcock on a tank that didn't at least need a good rinse with clean gas to dump dirt out the bottom.

    Normally I keep the crud out of the bottom of my tanks by using a small diameter fuel line hose clamped to the end of a long screwdriver or wooden dowel. Start the siphon and gently chase the gunk around until it goes up the hose. Just a part of my regular maintenance that prevents petcock, filter, and carb problems.
