Petcock question
« on: September 05, 2018, 07:26:40 pm »
Just picked up a well maintained 95 Concours. Love it, very nice ride when not on the full size HD.
Noticed when home petcock was in "P" position. Switched back to "on". Everything seems fine but got a little concerned after reading of the problems associated with hydrolock and all. Not to worry? Thanks for having me on your forum. CTK

    Meant to post this showing overflow tubes. Can save you from hydrolock.

how many miles do you have on your new bike? do you know the maintenance history?

The bike has 55k. From original owner with maintenance record log. Primarily frequent oil/filter changes.  Thanks.
