Looking for insight on a replacement gas cap. The current one needs the key, I wish to get rid of the key all together. On the flip side a CB550 utilizes a dual petcock.....I just installed mikuni VM 30's so that would allow even gas to each carb. So do I use a T connector and put a new gas cap on or will the CB550 tank fit .

Thanks

The single petcock with a T or Y in the hose will keep up with the rate of fuel consumption these bikes can achieve.

Will the 550 petcock fit on the 400 tank?

Someone else may know about the 550 tank fit.

Ok thanks. I don't think the 550 petcock will fit it looks completely different mounting wise. Ill work on the routing of fuel lines and make it pretty.

The design of the tank opening for the cap precludes using a different cap, some skilled cutting and welding can rectify that. The frame width is the biggest problem for getting alternative tanks to fit, 4" at the wide section.
