The Nihilo Concepts Petcock is a direct replacement for the older style screw type that has come on many KTM, Husqvarna, and Gas Gas 50’s and 65’s, and Adventure cross-over bikes for many years. It works like the standard lever turn style petcocks we have used for many years and eliminates the possibility of dirt and water from jamming up your stock unit. Made in the USA out of aircraft-grade billet aluminum and fifth-axis CNC machined to perfection with Heavy Duty gasket and hardware, the Nihilo Concepts Petcock will last for many years.
WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY
This is an insane shot by my buddy Mental. It’s (I believe 1994) and we’re up in the high desert after a good dusting and we’re testing modified 500 2-strokes for off-road. I’m on the CR, and it’s Bob Sage on a modded KX500. Karel Kramer set the camera up for Mental to shoot and my big buddy nailed it.
