daffy Thank you.
So far, it is running great.
And, the hose is stay where it is supposed to be.
Time will tell.

accord_guy The only thing that's ever worked for me is to switch to reserve and then fill up with gas as soon as I can. I also try to not park in the sun when below half tank and it's really hot out.

clock152 if it still wont stay in there you could try a few other things but I would buy a filter to put on it and run it under the seat. EMGO is what I have on mine but I am shaved... some have had good results by running the hose under the tank and connecting it to the nipple from the sending unit. others have ran it into the frame of the bike... as long as it is not getting to much air flow or botteming out your good to go.

Got it home and noticed the hose had came off the right ear again?
I think that I got it in there good, this time and will take it for a test drive, later tonight.
It does go in the spot that has a slit cut in the bottom, right?
Yes.

daffy Thank you for all the advise.
The hose had come off the right ear.
I cut it at a 45 degree angle, pushed it back in.
Checked all the other vent hoses.
Everything looked fine.
Went ahead and put in new plugs, since I didn't know how old these were.
Also checked the gas tank hose.
Took it for a test drive and it ran fine.

If the cut is placed opposite the slot, and the hose bottoms out, venting is still obstructed right?
Yes, the cut angle needs to face the slot if the hose gets pushed to the bottom.

X2 dariv. Good call.
The wind gust makes sense too, if the vent hose is pulled out and exposed to high speed air passing over an exposed end.

Here is where it should be.

OlHossCanada Poogs is a caused by vacuum in the fuel tank due to the vent hose or valve becoming plugged.
If your tank vent was plugged in 95*F temps, the tank would be pressured up before riding IMHO. Riding for only 5 miles or 7 minutes would not drain enough fuel from the tank fuel from the tank to create a vacuum condition. The tank being 3/4 full also sound like it is not POOGS to me.

You could test fuel flow by taking both fuel lines and vacuum line from the carb, then drain gas into clear bottles while sucking on the vacuum line. See how much gas will drain before the flow slows or ceases. Just an idea to try.
