I looked up the factory plug for my bike, B8ES, and went to the parts store and picked up a couple of them. The plugs in my bike have a threaded thing on the end of them instead of that little ball, also the plug wires correspond with this fitting. Any suggestions?? Do you normally convert them over? The plugs I bought have threads inside the ball fitting thing, can I just thread a small bolt into there and use them anyways?

Thanks,
Brad

$50+ for a NOS replacement IF you can still find one...... Not cheap, but "gotta-have"

That should/might work...At least it's cheap enough to try..... :D Looks like someone beat you to it though.... :(
I ended up buying a "replacement" repro for the 90 from Thailand ( $35 + shipping).... I'm not real happy with the quality, but it's working OK so far..... I believe they are actually Chinese-made copies.....

There is one seller on Ebay that lists whole NOS petcocks for $46.99 plus shipping. That's still cheaper than anywhere else I've found, and it's where I got mine from. Perfect part too. Most places want anywhere from $52.95 - $59.95. Once in a while they run one at auction starting cheap. Check their store for that. Not to mention that you've got spare parts afterwards, and who doesn't love that?

Just another option for you maybe...
