Wisconsin new C10 owner
« on: June 19, 2014, 10:02:42 am »
Just bought a 2003 Concours.  I am used to air cooled BMWs (R100RS) so this stuff is new to me.  Been hearing about a risky petcock!  Something I should change?

Also have a 1986 GSXR 750 that is relunctly up for sale.

Looking forward to many miles on the Kawasaki.

Welcome to the forum. Some C10 owners have changed the petcock to a manual one. Search for hydrolock and/or carb overflow tubes.

Thanks - I'm thinking that Pingel might be the way to go...
