who makes the ...

little vent caps for your gas cap. The ones that you get rid of the hose? thanks

I'm not sure who makes them but i think i read these will plug up and restrict fuel flow. I think this is what caused mcgrath's crash.

This has been bugging me because I thought I saw it on BBR or Pro Moto Billet before, but I didn't see them on their web pages. But, I did see it on Chaparal (who I will never order from again). It is item #W1435 5, MX Plus Vent Cap.

not sure who makes them but I saw them in stock at Matt's shop "The Pit" on cave creek rd and greenway.

White Brothers sells them. They come in different colors too.


Go here. click on intake and carb. and they will come up with all kinds of vent products.

$6.95 for the gas cap vent.

Thanks, I found that one this morning but it is rather large. I will check with WB.

Tom, that is far! Thanks for the tip though.

I had one of those on my 620sx ktm and it became clogged causing a real head scratcher....stick with stock you can always zip tye the hose somewhere if it gets all twisted up.

My trail buddy uses one of these on his CRF and he has had zero problems. I don't see how it could get clogged unless your bike is upside down in mud or water. You can blow it out with air after washing. The way mxraceraz keeps his garage and bike, I'm sure it won't be a problem. I think that valve looks like a communication device. "Echo Base to Foxtrot 3, over" LOL

I bought one from Chaparral (search for MX Plus Vent Cap on their website). It is made by a company in Tualatin Oregon. Very cool, red, check valve. Lets air in but prevents gas from spilling out.

thanks antman. that was the one i was looking for. i just hope the quality is better than their cf skidplates..lol..

I knew about that one Antman, but someone said it cost them just as much to ship it as it was for the part.

Ask how much for shipping.

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
