Where does it go?

I just finished installing my set of coasters, when I pulled out the air valve the fuel tank vent hose/tube came up with it, I can't find where the other end goes to, does it hook up to something or does it just hang down to vent the tank? Help please. Thanks

Mike

Re: Where does it go?

Mine just leads down next to the battery vent tube at bottom, I think it's just a vent for the fuel tank. How much were the coasters?

Hi Justin;
Thanks for the reply and the info. The coaster were $17.50 with shipping. I got them from Knifemaker ( Eric ) at Metric Custom Creations. They're not listed on his site yet but send him an email and he'll send you the order info. His email add; [email protected]

Re: Where does it go?

Sounds like a good deal, does it make a difference in the sound...did it backfire a lot before you installed them?

No backfiring at all after I adjusted the air/fuel mixture screws. It does not alter the exhaust sound at all. I initially had marbles in the hoses going to the reed valves. I decided to coaster because I didn't like the looks of the valves, looks cleaner with the coasters on.
