So, you have two petcocks and they’re OEM vacuum operated, correct? At least some of those nets are available from OE parts dealers. Alternatively, you only need one petcock. Block off the one on the right. Put the screen to the left and plumb it to both carburetors. It will function just fine.No filter for one Petcock
Happened to my single petcock XJ650. I cleaned it up and used Seal All to put it back and then rebuilt it.
I’m running that on my XS650SH. It’s the manual replacement MikesXS and everyone else has. It’s not a simple swap. The outlet is 3/16”. The carburetor inlet is 1/4”. The outlet was at the wrong angle, so I had to shim it to the correct position. I lubed the rubber disk with Parker Lube (I believe dielectric grease would be fine for that.) So, the handle now moves freely. I raised the screens and secured them with .020 stainless safety wire per @rhkansas. Works fine after a PITA replacement. I’m still going back to the OE vacuum. It’s just better.I played around with various china made petcocks with that bike and some of them just come with brass tubes and a screen on the top.
I painted them in my brothers front yard. Got a nice DeVilbus paint gun off eBay cheap during Covid. Just took my time. Pretty huge dents had to be filled with fiberglass and bondo. I’m in no rush. That makes for a better prep.the filter/screen did not fall out into the tank?
BTW, who painted/clear coated your tank? Paint booth using a compressor sprayer or rattle can?
I've had one of these installed for 3 years, and its been working fine.
