SHO Fuel line popped off
I know I have seen another post on this, but couldn't find it. I was riding today after some WOT runs and the SHO just dies. I tried to restart and all I got was a sputter. While sitting in the middle of the freaking lake, I took the seat off and looked around and found the fuel line had popped off the fuel rail. This may of may not have been related to the just installed air and exhaust mods. Who knows... Either way I am going to try to find a way to better secure the line to the fuel rail. 30 hours, no issues and then all of a sudden... Could be a coinsidence I guess...
Okay, I guess we'll talk vent lines instead

I did not have your problem but I was riding all day Sunday and aftr I got home I opened the gas cap and I heard a weird sucking sound. Turns out my gas tank started to colapse from negitive pressure inside it. It came back to its stock shape but I don't know why this happened. Or if it will haped again.

The rigging and quality of the gas tank vent hose is poor. The hose is not
supported properly and the vent line kinks. This happened on my SHO at 15 hrs. It will likely happen when the ski gets low on fuel. My gas tank was totally collapsed.

Thanks guys I'll check later when I get out to the garage.
Oh ya, and by the way, I took the ski to the cabin this week and let the family ride it. They came back to shore and ran it right into the dock. Putting and huge gash in the hood. At least they didn't sink it. Anyone know where I can get touch up paint!

When I went to take off my manifold I checked my fuel line where it connects to the rail. Sure enough it clicked when I shoved it onto the rail. It was definitely not clicked on from the factory.
