    XPL fuel check valve question

    I was in the station last month and as I filled my tank I saw my ski pissing gas, ugh! The line from the tank that exits the hull next to the pisser from the exhaust pipe has a stuck check valve. Anyone know if that line is a vent or pressure relief. I'm assuming vent. TIA!

    Never mind, found this info;
    OK, You got me on that one, simply because some models put them in different sides of the Hull.


    The Vent under the Rub Rail which "T's to the Vent up high on the Hull is the 1.5psi VENT OUT. The other side of the "T",, usually around the Steering console or, on some models under the latch area behind the Steering Console is the Check Valve which VENTS IN and is for alleviating the Vacuum in the Fuel Tank as Fuel is used.

    The OTHER Vent under the Rub rail, regardless of which side it's on, has a Vent OUT Check Valve which one side of the Valve Body Plastic is Orange in color. This is your Battery Vent and it always Vents OUT.

    Ditch the vent on the side of the hull,it is useless.

    Just run the check valve on the tank.

    Thanks, I was thinking the same, but the kids are not around so I decided to rebuild it, seems the rubber oring is damaged, and I'll just grab a new one. If I sell the ski this spring (depending if I have $$$ for a FZR) I want it to be in top shape and close to stock for the next guy or girl or transgender or neuter or undecided, except for the required mods.
