Lanse...use the teflon tape..wrapping in the same direction that the petcock turns to install it & wrap a couple of times...should fix your leak.

Careful using teflon tape. If any of it gets into the fuel stream and will break off. This piece of teflon can get caught in the fuel system, because the tape doesn't really dissolve in fuel it will cause a blockage. This blockage can cause the bike to run poorly. I use Locktite 567 it will work it way through a fuel system not to cause a blockage. I am a fan of your videos. They remind me of myself and my friends in our younger days. Keep them up and best of luck.

Thanks Mike!

I went and bought a $4.29 siphon pump from the local NAPA, and drained 2.5 gallons of the 2.9 gallon tank. Rest came out pretty well through the petcock, and im proud to say that was the LEAST gas Ive ever spilled with that bike. Shoulda bought that thing a while ago...

Anyway, tried the teflon tape. Its not leaking, but neither was just the O ring when I first put that on. Lets hope this works :/

Step one:

Go to honda shop, or order online through your favorite honda parts outlet.

Step two:

Order a 16195-657-300 o-ring for less then $2

Step three:

Profit.

Seriously- it is just a metric o-ring.

No need to torque the heck out of it either- is the bowl gasket good? It could leak from 3 places, the joint at the tank, the joint where the selector valve is, and the joint at the bowl for the screen/water trap. Did you check all 3 places? And did you order a genuine honda petcock or a knockoff from china? Did the petcock come in a Honda bag or? There is a lot of knockoff stuff peddled on ebay. Did you know you could have got the parts to rebuild your Honda petcock?

Do you still have your old petcock?

Even if you bought a china brand you could still cut your losses and re-build your old one.
