Thanks, Ghost, that's exactly it. You don't want to make the C-canal any wider on the petcock knob, because it will leak. You can use either a really small dremel bit (I actually found one JUST the width of the C-canal), or you can use the point of an Xacto knife.

Well, if you take the entire petcock apart (which I'm assuming you've done), you fill the whole inside of the petcock with J-B Weld, where the little rubber washer that looks like a button went. Once that stuff dries, you drill straight down through the top barb all the way through the J-B Weld and through the bottom hole of the petcock. If you're trying to re-use the white knob, you dig the C-channel deeper, NOT wider - wider will make it leak.

Instead of making a plate I pulled a Dime out of my pocket & I filed the edges off it until it fit.. JB under the dime and then put the original plate back on it..
IT WORKS GREAT

Nice. I just overfil the hole in the petcock then wet sand it down flush and screw the original plate back on it.

Doesn't even cost the extra dime ROFL.

A little JB weld and some sanding.

If I used a dime that would make the bike more valuable to steal as it would be worth at least a dime LOL.
