    CB500T Petcock Strainer Necessary?

    Hello All ...

    Is the strainer on the CB500T petcock necessary if you are planning to run in line filters on the gas lines? I would think not, but thought I would ask ... the one that came on mine was trashed and a new one is pretty pricey!

    Thanks Bill

    I'm running external filters on mine since the internal one broke. Have never had any issues.

    Same here - put micro inline filters both sides with a lawnmower compost shut-off on both sides as well because I don't trust my petcock and want to make sure fuel is not dripping down in the crankcase - so far so good.

    I bought a reproduction petcock for my 400 on eBay. $8.00 for the petcock And strainer. If you'd like more info, feel free to message me. Robert
