Fuel tap broke

Need a left hand fuel tap if anyone has one for a 2004 FE450. I'm in UK.

There is one on Ebay but its off a 501, would I be right in saying they are the same?

How about using one from a Husky 610 or equivalent?

OEM new petcocks from Husaberg are not that expensive and there is no rebuild kit available.

To keep them from sticking and seizing I polish the toggle face that contacts the rubber insert/gasket and also wipe the insert with WD-40.

The pre 2000 petcocks are the same I believe but may be sticky due to their age. The only difference are the screws and bolts that attach it to the tank. Earlier models used phillips screws which were later changed to a hex bolt with a larger more agressive thread. I use the newer hex bolts in my 97 as the screws cannot be torqued down much without slipping.
