Has anyone had any experiences with Pingle fuel taps ? Who sells them in OZ ?

Did you mean Pingel? I sound like Siri.

Hi flow taps and heaps of suppliers all over Oz. Very common in racing and drag applications.

i think there is only one triple that likes a drink more than the kwaka and thats a Benelli. Should fit the jap triples being a euro I would think.
 There are two styles, the hex with outlets equally spaced and the neater design guzzler model with all outlets facing rear at 90 degrees.
 Harley speed shops use then a fair bit though they will only have NPT single and dual in stock but can get you the others.

Thanks for that Pokey . The thread on the tank is different ( I think 24 x 1). I found only  one on Ebay , but nearly had a stroke when looking at the final price  LOL . https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kawasaki-750-H2-Pingel-Triple-sortie-carburant-haut-debit-Robinet-c-w/253151162701?epid=633545507&hash=item3af0fc314d:g:8JcAAOxyUrZS8Pnp:rk:1:pf:0    If you can find a cheaper one ( same Item ) that would be great . The reason for this is that I put 34 mm carbs on it and there is not enough flow and room for the OEM tap .

Thinking outside the square. around 10 years ago I  assembled a few taps for some guys who were  doing drags and it would depend on how much room you have but the flow is there.
 a 1/4 " annodised manifold and mf mini WOG valves with Brass presfits with locks  using HDPE line.
 Inlets are fed to the manifold via each end  but to keep the flow, separate valves need to be used on each outlet or each inlet.
 Can do a 1/2 three way air manifold  with single valve and three tailpieces but looks like a milking machine and not a tidy install.
 Fuel normally closed solenoid valve could also be used.

For a purely mechanical compact system the Pingel is the go.

Yes I was think along the same lines , making something . Then I thought as a last resort ,I will ask my usual triple part supplier Midatlantic  if he knew of any Pingels . The reply today  was " How many do you want , I have plenty in stock, $145 landed to you " That solves that problem . Thank you for your help .

Thank you Lozza , all sorted . Pingel is the the best option , due to size and flow rate . The original H2 vacuum taps are the best , but I put on bigger carbs and there is not enough room now between the outlet and the left carb.I was just spooked at the $420 option I found first on E bay  . Now that I got the spelling right ,I found the right thing for half the price , thanks to Pokey .
