fits good except the petcock hits the pipe , really like the pipe , going to try and make it work
I guess ya can just shim up the gas tank a little bit for more clearance.
Or run the gas line directly to the tank and use an inline petcock.

A 90 with a hose barb right out the bottom of the tank face rear ward and a in line shut off valve might be the ticket ----

Can you move the tank forward enough to clear?
No , I pushed it all the way forward and still can't turn the petcock -----

The right thing to do would be move the petcock to the other side and plug the side it is up on now , the carb is going to have to be moved to the other side anyways

Maybe you can just heat the pipe and bend it so the petcock has enough clearance. I hear these Pipes are easy to bend

Took a few steps back , really like the looks of the new to me muffler , so if it going to require a lot of reengineering to make it work , moving the carb to the other side the engine is going to be the hardest part , playing around with the offset pipes I have and I am going to need another or some welding to what I already have , ordered a couple of things this morning

proto-type of the fuel petcock

I was unhappy with the cheap china center kick stand , the rivets were loose and it made the bike lean to one side and was wobbly , was tired of it ---so drilled out the rivets and put the next size bigger stainless bolts and self locking nuts ,tightened up nice

Think this is going to be the way it is going to stay ---- have some of the exhaust wrap on the way , for two purposes , one to keep the heat off my leg and the other for kepping the heat off this petcock and fuel hose
