Keyless starter and keyless gas cap!

If I install a keyless gas cap how can I vent the tank or will the keyless gas cap be vented? What company should I go with? OPP Racing, Vortex, etc.... (2010 Honda CBR 1000RR)

Does your tank currently vent through the fuel cap?
The tank should vent through the bottom via an internal pipe.

Re: Keyless starter and keyless gas cap!

It is probably vented through the bottom. I have just read about a bike that installed the new vortex keyless gas cap and while the bike was sitting idle it was fine but when he gave it gas it would go dead and he later found out that it was his gas cap and the tank was not vented! I have the service manual but I can not find this info!

Re: Keyless starter and keyless gas cap!

when you open your gas cap, you will see a hole in the top of the tank around the fill port. it will be ABOUT 1/4" (6.35mm for you metric guys) THAT is your vent. it has NOTHING to do with your gas cap, thaat is, unless your new gas cap has such an incredible seal around the edge of the tank when you install it that it will not allow any air to pass. all the cap does is plug off the filler hole...now if the new cap blocks that small hole, then that could casue some issues

That is not your vent.
That is simply a tube that passes through the tank to drain any water or fuel spillage into the well.
The vent vents downwards from inside the top of the tank.
