Beta4Stroke This fell out of gas tank

Recommended Posts

Ya- what is this? I found the same thing laying the ground under my 300RR. My bike still runs but I am curious what it is too.

It's a backflow preventer that specializes in creating vapor lock problems. If you have an upside down bike a fuel leak could occur without it.. Junk it.

I found mine on the floor near the bike and was puzzled for a while. Never saw it fall off when I was refueling.

That's the Beta fuel cap vent/backflow device. CHUCK IT immediately.

If you want proper ventilation, get a cheap aluminum or inline vent tube version. The green one will fail closed, and your carb will choke on vacuum (fuel starve) without proper tank venting. I learned that way. Tried to fix it, didn't take, threw it out and got a regular top vent.

I ended up using a punch and knocking the insides out of the green piece then snapped the green piece back on as a "splash guard" not sure if that reasoning checks out or not but at least it vents all the time now. If you spend a lot of time with the top of the bike facing down you might get some fuel spillage...

I did this as well. Works half way decent. I still leak some gas while transporting though

On the 300 it fell off in the tank and I seen it there after removing the fuel. It took me a few minutes to remove from inside the tank. When I bought the 200 I removed it that day before I even rode the bike. In fact I think it ended up in the garbage can of a Washington state ferry.

so now the FBI is tracking a strange boat that only goes back and forth along the same route. Highly suspicious.
