Ouch, how bad is the old one broken? I'd be trying to make that work. It is likely a vacuum operated one now would be a wild guess not having seen it.

I already gave you the cheapest solution. Used parts or bypass the broken ones using what you have. It's just a fuel petcock! Doesn't really matter if it works the same as the one on there just as long as it delivers fuel to your carburetors.

What year is your motorcycle? Honda used 3 different petcocks based on the year. There is a cheap ($7-10) replacement you can usually find on ebay, but you have to know the year.

I'm going to guess the petcock had a vacuum line or two in addition to the fuel line?
if yes, What did you do with those?

and you are certain you have good fuel flow to the carbs now?
