    Collapsed fuel tank

    After sitting and cooling off after a ride, my 96' XP fuel tank collapses until I remover the cap to relieve the suction. Is my vent or on/off valve faulty?

    vent is stuck, best to tend to this asap. Inexpensive part.

    There's two..an "in" valve and an "out" valve, there are little arrows of direction stapmed on eh valve. Typically set to 2-3 psi on a pop off test.
    If this is a new problem, replace them . if you just got the ski, check to make sure the arrows point in different directions...better then too high pressure and blowing off a fuel fitting and having a fire risk

    Where is the valve? Are you talking the on/off.res switch?
