Evap/ gas tank vent?

Recommended Posts

After removing the evap. system i noticed there is a high vacuum in the tank, had to fight the cap to get it off.
 
I just capped it off but figured it needed to be vented after reading the cap isn't.
 

Should i vent it to the air-box or would that be a bad idea?

I would run a new line along a similar path of the evap canister breather line you removed. Vent it under the bike. I wouldn't vent to the air box. You don't want fuel and vapors in there IMO.

Might not be a bad idea to put a little breather on there to keep debris out.  Maybe a small lawnmower fuel filter or something like that would suffice.

i removed all the unnessecary items from my bike.  this included the evap can, PAIR system, and I reused the small diamiter hose to vent my gas tank along the same rout as the other two drain/vent hoses. a few rubber caps from the hardware store close the system. i have saved every bit of plastic and metal, every single nut , bolt and washer that i have removed from this bike that was not nessecary and so far it totals seven pounds.
