    Original petcock - the one with only off and Res ,no prime.

    I do like the idea of the t bar on vacuum tube.
    Another great option. Wonder how much suction and for how
    Long would be needed . I might even test this theory ..

    But the ideal is a tap with prime with the nozzles pointing
    forward as there is no room for different taps.

    probably not too long, if your bowls already have some gas in them... The T is only going to work if you have a valve that closes suction at the manifold side when using..... if you left the syringe attached to a hose,.I think it might work as an air plug. And kind of a statement to get your bike going with a syringe in the morning... but I'm sure a fertile mind can spawn plenty of fixes...I would want to keep the vacuum operation of the petcock in play though, even if it is possible to disassemble the petcock and ...take the little o-ring off the plunger or other things?

    I hear you on the correct direction of nozzles...it is possible to drill and tap a new nozzle into the generic (wrong) tap. It has been done here by member Argonsagas, I think. Otherwise, Georgefix has a wide selection if you can ever afford the transatlantic postage

    Interesting as I have a tap that is wrong , just needs
    to point the other way.
    I'll enquire as I want a proper tap really however
    it is done.
    Thanks.

    Update:
    Still not left.
    Bike now ready bar still not having the perfect rear shocks.
    They are better but not new ones.
    If only I was rich I'd just buy some. Money for the
    open road is more important.
    Due to an engagement I can't leave now until 25th may.
