954RR Gas Tank.

I have removed all the smog and converted over to a 49 state bike. So I hope

My question is there is two nipples on the under side of the tank that vent. A bigger one that runs to the ground and attaches to the left Fairing. The other one used to go to the canister I believe not sure off the top of my head. I have capped that one off at the tank and noticed a lot more suction in the tank when I open it to fill for gas. My question is should I just let it vent or keep it capped?

Let it vent man. Need to keep those lines open.

Re: 954RR Gas Tank.

Yeah I was thinking that also after seeing how air tight the tank got after a short ride. Might just make a 2-3" line and zip it to the other.

Re: 954RR Gas Tank.

Pretty much! I took them off and just left the lines them open. It seems to work fine like that, but don't block them off. No bueno! Ride safe bro!! Great bike!

Re: 954RR Gas Tank.

I've heard of fuel starvation, crappy running, won't reach high rpm's, mysteriously dies while riding, and even saw a pic of a sucked in tank.
The smaller nipple is the tank vent, the bigger one is the overflow that you see the opening for next to the filler neck.

The vent is obviously mandatory, the overflow is for safety: routing spilled gas to the ground or the capture bottle (although I didn't know the fuel overflow had a capture bottle on the 954) instead of inside your bike.
I don't understand why you'd want to eliminate either of those lines.

Re: 954RR Gas Tank.

I have a few reasons honestly... But yeah the little one I took off and let it vent from the tank. The bigger one always ran down on the side of the bike none have a bottle or such that I know of.. just runs right down to the ground for overlow etc.

That's what i thought. A capture bottle or plug would be kinda lame.
I got a little confused when you mentioned that it ran to a cannister.

Remove the cap and let it vent.

Beyond fear is freedom.
