    ok so my original shut off valve is junk now. i dont know how but it started leaking BAD. I was working on my chopper this weekend, and after a while, i decided to put some gas in it and ride it for a little while. well i put in about 1/4 of a gallon and then noticed it was leaking. well i realized that it is leaking behind the lever, so i think its time for a new one. i was reading about the brass ones and want to get one of them i think. but the only place i could find a brass one was spooky tooth and the link isn't working. so if anyone knows anywhere else to get one i would appreciate it. also i read that you can get some at lowes or home depot. im in college now in a different town than my mb so i dont have the valve. i was just wondering if anyone has the part number. i figure that they are metric threads in the tank and i didn't figure lowes or home depot had metric ones. thanks for any help.

    yer i bought 1 of them from that dealer fetor56 works all good.
    feels like a better quality then the stock ones.
