The mounting holes on a Virago petcock are 34mm center to center.

Manual petcocks known to fit Virago are:

The preceding information was based on personal knowledge of the Pit Bike petcock and research conducted, to determine the XVS650 petcock has the same mounting bolt configuration. A cross reference of part numbers from provided the addition of other model and part numbers.

The XVS1100 petcock is known to be the same mounting bolt configuration as the XVS650. That information was gleaned from an XVS1100 forum as mod for the XVS650. Once again, I used for a cross reference of model numbers.

The information given here is to be used at your own risk and is believed by me to be accurate. You are ultimately responsible for making certain that the part numbers given will fit your bike.

A word of caution to 1st Gen. 920 owners. You may have to add a 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch spacer between the manual petcock and the gas tank to make it fit properly.
