Check out a shutoff valve off a CRF450. They are usually an easy mount.
I'll take a look at that one.  Thank you!

My k5's hate me, I haven't ridden one in months.
Getting old and soft, this is my go to bike now.
Radio, cruse control, it's like riding a sofa.
It's still a Kawasaki.

It's so comfy I'm worried about falling asleep at the bars.
I bought a five gallon fuel cell, fabricating receiving hitch mount.
I need at least a 350 mile range between fill ups.
I'm ready to see the roost from your new bike.

I got the petcock worked out today, and also was able to add some protection for the radiator hoses in a couple of areas.  With that I put fuel in the tank, and gave her a few kicks.  On the third kick she busted right off and started idling.  I was very excited until I realized I had not put coolant in it, so I shut her down.  I put some coolant in it, and I now waiting for it to cool off so I can get some video.  Stay tuned...

I rolled her outside to take some video, and ran into some issues.  The kickstarter was slipping on the ratchet, and the float bowl was stuck and fuel was running out.  I'm going to bite the bullet and buy a 2017 kickstarter and see if that will work.  The 2004 is right between two notches; one is too far back and hits the frame, and the other is too far forward and hits the clutch cover.  I had hoped to set it too far forward and just slip it back a little bit, but it causes the ratchet to not fully release.  Oh well, it was free to try it that way.  Hopefully I can get the new kickstarter installed, clean the carb, adjust the rekluse clutch, and have some video next weekend.
