Does anyone know if it is possible to get a replacement Clarke petcock gasket? The Clarke tank comes with a thick flat gasket that goes between the petcock and the tank. The stock 0 ring type gasket only works with the stock tank, and will not seal with the Clarke tank. Mine started leaking, and it seems to be partly melted, probably from ethanol. I know Clarke used to sell parts for their tanks, but now I can't find anything except for complete new tanks.


The above is my opinion. Your mileage may vary.

I suspect you'd be better off just making a gasket for it.

I could make a gasket, but I can see it failing when I'm 50 miles from home. I finally found an email address for https://clarkemfg.com/ and sent them an email asking if it is possible to buy the parts I need. I remember some time ago seeing a place that sold parts for Clarke tanks, but cannot find anything now. Clarke only shows new fuel caps on their site.

Jerry,
On one of my TW200's, I mounted a Clarke tank and had this problem. I ended up filing the mounting surface flat to get it to seal.

Clarke has notoriously poor customer service. Hopefully you have better luck connecting with them than others have had.

I had good luck with Clarke. I got an email response from them this morning, and ordered the parts. They said they should be here in a few days. The lady I talked to on the phone was very nice and polite. Oddly the email says the screws were not on their website, but I was able to order them anyway. The gaskets were not on the website either, only the cap. I decided to replace that too, the little fitting where the vent hose attaches has been broken off for some time.

Jerry,
Yes, you are able to purchase these gaskets #1289 and cap # 1378. Unfortunately the screws are not listed on our website, you can call to place order if you wish.

Jerry, thanks for posting the email with the part number! I have the tank as well and need to replace my whole petcock assembly. I figure it'd be a good idea to replace that gasket too, but wasn't certain how to find it. I'll call them and order it. grin

Hi there, I am also about to embark on a Clarke Tank install, my old original petcock is all rusty and needs to be rebuilt. I was thinking of buying a universal fit petcock (since they're less expensive than an OEM gasket, lol). I've seen the Clark petcock on their website, looks a lot like the universal ones that you can buy cheap on eBay? Should I go with universal, buy a Clarke petcock, or rebuild the original Yamaha to fit Clarke? - please vote 1-Uni, 2-Clrk, 3-Yama!
