The early to mid 70's Suzuki Dual-Sport fuel valves are a 100% bolt-on to 99-02 SV, even the bolts fit.
No vacuum lines, just On/Off/Reserve (the way god meant a bike to be ;D ).

The bummer is the frame is in the way :-\
None the less I was shocked when it all lined up!!!

i had one of these on my ex500. i forgot to turn it to "on" once and "ran out of gas" once i used the little bit in the pipe. man, was that embarrassing pushing my bike off the road, then realizing the situation and riding away while people were stopping to help.

Or better yet when you're tooling down the road and run out of gas.... you go to switch to reserve only to find that you ARE on reserve :-\

reason I would not use manual petcock is that fuel pump even vacuum operated never actualy stops flow of fuel.
