Fuel Shutoff Valve

My 1997 FLHT shut off valve is leaking at the atmospheric pressure port. Where can I get a new one. Went to the dealer and they wanted $88.

Ask the dealer service dept for the rebuild kit , there was a recall on those and you might get it free .

It's called a "Petcock".

You can get them at J&P Cycles | Motorcycle Parts and Motorcycle Accessories, or you can upgrade to a Pingle that deletes the vacuum shut-off, and gives you a smoother movement, better flow and a nicer look then just that stock unit.

As Schmidty said, you can also rebuild it.

I have a good used one that came off my 1995 Dyna that I can sell ya for $25 shipped, but rebuilding them is easier then replacing one.

Actually the dealer may still be required to do the repair as it was a safety recall and only the original owner would have been notified by mail .
Fuel valve recall 088 , Svc . Bull. M-1063A .

Agreed, if it's covered under the recall. The recall, if I'm correct, was due to natural rubber seals and Ethanol in gasoline.

Yes , the diaphram inside the fuel valve deteriorated and would leak fuel . Potential fire hazard for sure !

If the dealer won't fix it for free, you can get one from Chicago HD for $79 with shipping....

Thanks guy,s for the info. Went to the dealer and they said no recall on my bike. J & P has OEM petcock for 19.98. Might order from them.

Take a closer look. I believe the OEM for that price DOE NOT include the vacuum diaphram for automatic fuel release. This only means you'd have to manually turn the gas off and on and block off the current vacuum line.
