10. Cut your side covers so they fit and compliment your new installation (I used tin snip). Drill two small holes, one on each covers, where they meet the frame and zip tie them in place so they won't fly while cruising on the highway (thank you lzrdbrth for the suggestion, I just red your post this morning about your experience)
11. Install your stock petcock. It will fit, but it's a tight fit.
12. Put your seat back on and take care to slip the tab under your new bracket
Voila! You can now enjoy your ride again without having to fuel four times a day ;-)
If you want your installation to be perfect, you will need handlebar risers or your stock bar will hit the tank at full turn.
I insist on risers because I first installed a Protaper ATV High bar and had the same problem, the base of the bars (where it bolt to the triple tree) would hit the tank. I was lucky I had some risers on another bike that I could use. Problem solved.
I will try the setup as it is now and see if I like it. The bar sit pretty high and I'm a bit worried about the cables I had to reroute. They seem ok but I'll definitely keep a good eye on them in search of any premature wear. There is no binding as I call tell, but they are surely tighter than they were before.
I'll keep you updated on that.
