"it's the story of my front
cylinder fouling spark plugs as fast as i could put
'em in. Turns out it was the pet cock, or petcock as
it were. The manifold vacuum line was sucking in fuel
straight from the petcock! What led me to it was the
hardened vacuum hose. Luckily i ordered that Kawasaki
diaphram kit for $13.00(thanks guys!) and i'm back on
the road. Now all i need is some decent weather....


Kawasaki part #43028-1021

will fix the Virago petcocks

Finding gas in your oil or all over the floor is this litte suckers problem.
