fuel tank breathers
« on: February 23, 2019, 05:58:17 PM »
Evening all, a quick question....... I have been servicing my Inazuma today, and noticed under the fuel tank i have 3 breather hoses, 2 are connected to the underside of the fuel tank, but one breather which is a little bit shorter,appears to branch off by means of a  T connector to one of the main breathers, doesn't appear to be connected to anything, it may be normal and just vents to atmosphere, but to me it doesn't look right, any ideas ? I have checked the manual and it just shows 2 breathers, does anyone have any idea where this third hose goes ????

Hi Donlad,

I have no idea where / if this 'breather' should be connected but don't think it needs to be:

On some bikes there is an overflow pipe to allow for fuel to be expelled from the tank i.e. on a warm day if the tank is full the fuel will expand - this pipe may allow for fuel to leave the tank to save it becoming under very high pressure in the tank - this might possibly be the pipe?
I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left !

Good morning tookadum,

Yes i was thinking the same, I have started the bike and run it for a while, and it appears to be fine with no obvious issues, I still have a couple of things to finish off with it today and will give it a good run to be sure

We've got 35 cm of snow here. I envy you that you can ride right now. I'm just dreaming and waiting.

Hi Donlad,

I take it you have the workshop manual on pdf?  There's a link on here somewhere.

See this for info on breather hose routing (workshop manual page 10-19).

Hope that helps   :028:
