Hey everyone, so I've been riding my newly obtained '78 CX500 standard (big thanks to Vic on the forum :D ) with no problems. However today when I got home from work I noticed that I was leaking gas from my petcock. I immediately turned it to the shutoff position but it was still leaking. I noticed that the petcock itself was a little loose so I tightened the bolt that connects it to the gas tank(see picture) and it seemed to stop leaking. Was it just loose or is it something I should replace?

It could have been leaking due to the connection between the petcock and tank output. There should be a small oring/gasket there to help seal. Of course you won't know without draining the tank and checking.
