Yamaha Fuel Petcock & SW-MOTECH Crash Guards
I have the SW-MOTECH Crash Guards on my 2007 KLR which work extremely well. I can speak from multiple personal experiences on this matter.
I also replaced the original Vacuum managed Fuel Petcock with the Yamaha 100% manually operated Fuel Petcock Part Number 5LP245000100
The challenge is that these two items are not 100% compatible. With the MO-TECH Crash Guards installed the Fuel Petcock Lever will hit the Crash Guard.
The solution seems simple enough. Cut/Grind/File (your choice) the Petcock Lever to clear the Crash Guard. Unfortunately having done so, the remaining Petcock Lever is now rather difficult to turn by hand. Due to its now limited size and position next to/behind the Crash Guard.
So, my solution to the solution, as it were, was to drill a hole through the Petcock Lever and install a Key Ring Loop as shown. This works perfectly!
