1999 Ninja 250r Petcock Alternatives

Hi, I'm new to the forum and I have a problem. I have a 1999 Ninja 250r that I bought used for about $300, the owner didn't know how to repair it so I'm going through and fixing everything. I pulled the petcock and luckily the owner was smart enough to turn off the petcock before storing the bike so the petcock is the only thing that is corroded. The problem is I can't locally find one of these petcocks anywhere. And when I do find it its 10 day shipping and its $90. Is there an aftermarket one I can use or any other year model I could use? Thanks.

Unfortunately not to my knowledge.

New petcock is pricey, but rebuilding it isn't worth it either, or buying one used.

Here's my write-up on the subject.

If your petcock is shot, save your time, and money and get a new one, the cost of rebuilding it isn't much cheaper, due to you need two separate kits, as they for some reason don't make just one.

New one cost about $65.00

1988~00 models

2001~07 models

Also be sure to order the orings(92022-183 WASHER,6.2X11X1.5)and new bolts(92001-1091BOLT,6X20),trust me you'll be better off in the long run.

Rebuilding kits are about $60 total.

IMHO not worth it rebuilding, also be sure to check vacuum and fuel lines for wear, holes, and cracks, if in doubt replace them. Also replace the two small O-rings on the bolts for the petcock part# 92022.

This is the time to add an inline filter filter, if you don't have one already, something like the one below, most motorcycle shops have these in stock for a few dollars.

K&N 81-0221 Fuel Filter https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000E2AR70..._ncMwwbE333H0E

Due to the ninjas from 86~07 don't have one.

I'm not your mom and I'm not paying for your parts, so do whatever you want with your own bike.
