1977-78 Pacer (Italtelai) P14, Sport P78
1978-81 Motron Sprint, Medalist, Classic

This valve fits hundreds of mopeds and mini-cycles. It fits any tank with a 10×1 threaded hole, and with nothing below or near the valve that would interfere.

This modern replacement valve has 3 positions, ←reserve  on↓ off→. Most original valves were, ↑reserve  off→ on↓ . Original valves with an up position had to be moved away from the bottom of the tank with an extender, to allow the handle to go straight up. Some tanks had a welded-on extender, a short pipe with a 10×1 threaded hole. Some valves had a screw-on extender. On tanks that needed an extender for handle clearance, this modern replacement valve eliminates the need for an extender, by not having an up position.

Cimatti Gas Valve

Cimatti with no adapter
(must remove tank)

1978 Cimatti City Bike

Cimatti rear tanks have a 10×1 threaded hole, but there is a nearby “wall” that prevents a 10×1 male valve from screwing in, unless the whole gas tank is removed. That requires rear wheel and rear fender removal. To make gas valve installation easy, Cimatti added a screw-in 10-to-12 adaptor piece, and used a 12×1 female type gas valve, with a turnbuckle type nut. Only the nut turns, and the “wall” does not matter. So it is much better to reuse the 10-to-12 adaptor, and use a 12×1 spigot right valve, see below.

These “spigot left” valves substitute for a “spigot back” type in many cases. The fuel hose goes left instead of back. Like all screw-on valves, it can be aimed at any angle, so “left” can become “back”.

1987-1993 Tomos early top tank models

This valve fits early Tomos top tanks 10×1 female threads. The round knob goes through a one inch hole in the right plastic panel below the tank. After 1993 the top tanks had 12×1 male threads.

Here it is shown without the metal cup and rubber ring, but those things are included. The 15mm length extension includes the cup and rubber.

1980 Peugeot 102SP

 On Peugeot 102 and others there is a wall that prevents the valve from being screwed in, unless there is an extender piece between the valve and the tank. You try not to loose the extender, because it costs more than the valve.

1982 AMF 140

The AMF Roadmaster 140, 141 is another model that needs a short extender to position the valve knob to go through the hole in the body panel. That hole might have to be widened or the knob made smaller for this valve to fit

 

 

 

 


A9. 10x1 male spigot down with 26mm extender

10×1 down 26mm ex. 2231010-c $40
←res on↓ off→, made in Italy by OMG

This 10×1 spigot down valve has a 26mm extender that positions the valve lower, away from the bottom of the tank. The 26mm extender includes a longer reserve tube.

When an extender is added to a valve, the reserve tube needs to be longer. When the reserve tube is too short, there is little or no reserve. Here the original reserve tube has been replaced with a longer one, 60mm from the valve base instead of 35mm.

Any of the other 10×1 male valves can have a 15, 20, or 26mm extender added. Some already have long reserve tubes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A10. 10x1 male spigot left with 26mm extender

10×1 sp. left 26mm extender 2231010-b $40 ←reserve on↓ off→, made in Taiwan by FS

At left is a used leaking original, not for sale. An unknown application.

At right is a new replacement, for sale. It is either a 403200 (shown) or 01z2351035 (red) valve, with a 1 inch extender.

It includes a 1 inch longer reserve tube and both outer seal rings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A11. 10x1.25 male spigot right

10×1.25 male spigot right 634982 $18
adjustable height, made in China

 

This valve fits tanks with M10-1.25 female thread

None of the mopeds on this site have this thread. It may be for Chinese motorized bicycle gas tanks.

No reserve just OFF and ON.

Nut adjusts vertical height to fit closer or farther from tank.

Direction adjusts 360 degrees (like most others).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A12. 12x1 male spigot down

12×1 male spigot down 01z4011005 $20
←reserve  on↓ off→, made in Italy by OMG

This 12×1 valve is a male thread, right hand (clockwise is tighter). All other 12×1 valves are female thread and have a turnbuckle nut with both left and right hand thread. With the turnbuckle nut removed, the other 12×1 valves are male thread, left hand (clockwise is looser).

Peugeot Vogue

Because the whole valve must be screwed in to install it, the handle knob detaches with a clip.

This valve fits a Peugeot Vogue, perfectly.

Speedbird BP48 and Angel BP48-S, tube frame models made in Taiwan by TYM, use this valve. The 1.25 thread is more coarse than 1.0.

A custom made adapter, 10×1.00 female to 12×1.25 male thread, can allow a 10mm spigot left gas valve to work on a Speed Bird. The price is $25 for the adapter and seal washer, plus $15 for the valve.

The original valve on a Columbia Commuter (tube frame) was a vertical mount valve, mounted in the sideways position. So the valve faces up, instead of sideways. That is not bad, but the poor handle gets kicked easily since it is right where you step through the frame at.

The original valve had a reserve tube that curved upward, like on a Puch side mount. The replacement valve has a short straight reserve tube. Sideways installation disables the reserve feature. Optionally, a longer curved soft aluminum reserve tube is available. See below.

Bermuda (made by Flandria) mopeds use this vertical 12×1 spigot right valve, but in the horizontal position. There is no reserve function. The owners manual says that either rear or forward is closed (off), and outward is open (on). The valve handle is protected behind the cover. There is a finger width long slot in the right cover, for one-finger access. Many have their gas valve access slots widened, like the blue 1978 above.

Although the spigot direction is wrong, this still works fine on a Vespa Grande. The gas has to go uphill a little at first. This would only matter when nearly empty.

While the Tomos Targa valve works on a Vespa Si, the opposite is not true. The Tomos engine is too close, unless the cover is left off and the valve is rotated.

This valve fits a Vespa (Piaggio) Ciao. It can also fit a Puch Maxi type frame, but the upper filter hits the inside upper wall of the Puch gas tank. The reserve tube, which is a light press fit, can simply be rotated so it is not aimed straight up, to allow a Ciao valve to fit a Puch.

General 5-Star original valve

The original valves had poorly made cast nuts. The nuts were too big and also weak. When fully tightened they would strip. Some have good nuts, but after 35 years the rubber seal disk inside is brittle and deformed. All of the mopeds listed that came with a spigot-back gas valve, can take a less expensive spigot down or spigot left valve.

This motorcycle valve has a 7.7 mm spigot, for 1/4″ (6.3mm) fuel hose.

Honda Design: Note that the little arrow on the handle points opposite to the handle. So off is arrow left (handle right), on is arrow up (handle down), reserve is arrow down (handle up).

↑reserve ←off on↓ , made in Taiwan
for some mini-ATV’s

This is a vertical mount valve for certain late 1960’s to early 1970’s Honda motorcycles and ATV’s.

Indian valve substitute: The threads fit an Indian 4-stroke moped. This valve would substitute for an Indian gas valve, but the cover panel would have to be left off. Or else you could not reach it because the knob is not facing outward anymore.

Honda Design: Note that the little arrow on the handle points opposite to the handle. So off is arrow left (handle right), on is arrow up (handle down), reserve is arrow down (handle up).

In most cases, spigot right (above) can substitute for spigot down. The valve can be aimed at any angle, so “right” can become “back”.

Honda Design: Note that the little arrow on the handle points opposite to the handle. So off is arrow left (handle right), on is arrow up (handle down), reserve is arrow down (handle up).
