Gas Tank Question California vs Other States

Newbie here, sorry if this has been asked and answered. I have a 2001 VN750 and can't seem to find out how to tell if my tank has vapor recovery for California or not. Does anyone know how to tell, or possibly have a link to a picture. TIA

take off your seat, and look infront of your battery box, there should be a square plastic box with aseveral lines hooked up, if all you have is a round metal valve, then you don't have a california model.

part number 16164 is the plastic box I am refering to

Thanks, When I was in Afghanistan, I had more than enough time on my hands to almos tmemorize the parts manual and the service manual... at least enough to know where to look for specific information.

to the OP, You can use http://www.ronayers.com/Vulcan-750-V...F-C414354.aspx to find parts information on the vn750, use a 2006 model year since its the most complete listing on Ron Ayers.

Thumbs up Thanks a lot

I totaled my bike a couple of months ago when a guy cut in front of me. His insurance paid me, (minus $425 because I kept the bike). Just applied for a PA certificate of salvage, and after I get the bike fixed, I want to get it inspected by a PA "Enhanced Vehicle Safety Inspection Station" and then PA will give me a "reconstructed" (instead of "salvage") title. Got a dent in each side of the tank from my knees. I'm going to try to pop them out with (a hand pump) air pressure. If that doesn't work, or the station doesn't pass the small kinks, I'll be looking for another tank, (hopefully ebony / gray). Now I'm pretty sure I need a 51081-5356-VL and not a 5357.

either tank wil work for you, you would jsut have to cap off a couple of extra lines, or loop fule lines to plug the extra breather lines

The CA tank is actually the best one to have. When all the emissions crap is disconnected, put a piece of rubber hose on each fitting, and run both hoses down below the bike. You now have what amounts to two vents. You will never have any issues because the vent in the cap gets plugged up. That second fitting is a line that terminates inside the tank, right near the filler opening.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
