    What fuel tap for flatslides?

    Ok, so the dual outlet Pingel I've had on the bike for years has been pissing me off (mainly being a pain in the arse to disconnect) - so what's the weapon of choice when fitting RS Mikunis with no vac takeoff? Single outlet pingle? What did Yosh use on the 1135R - looks like a stock suzuki type but I assume without vacuum?

    Anyone want to buy a dual outlet Pingel?

    You could run a stock tap with a t-piece and get vacuum from one of the carbs...

    I don't have the stock tap anywhere anymore, and i have a hatred for vac operated taps anyway...

    I'd be interested in the Pingel but $ are a bit tight at the moment....

    On the XR 69 race bike we disconnect the hoses from the carburettors as it is near on impossible to disconnect from the Pingal tap. This is ok as we check for fuel burn all the time and the length of hose lets you drain the tank with out removing the tank. The year we won the Barry Sheene Memorial we ran outta fuel as we crossed the line no use carrying extra weight when you don't need to plus i didn't have to push it home LOL Cheers Murf.
    Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly

    I have the dual outlet pingel too and agree it is a shit to disconnect.
    The Kat's in a hundred bits at the moment and when I put it back together I plan on adding a "fuel line quick disconnect" in there to make it easier to take off.
    Throw that into eBay and you'll get a bunch of options.

    Yeah, unfortunately I know from the RG500 days that those dry break fittings are horrendously restrictive - like they'll reduce the flow by about 50%... Clearance against the carb heatshield is the other issue...

    Lol. I haven't got a hope of getting at the carb end of the fuel lines!
