    06 Speed Triple - Fuel Tank Hoses

    Hi all,

    I've been doing some searching on this issue but haven't found a satisfactory answer. I recently had the fuel tank nipple plug up issue, which was causing water to go into my tank. Drained the tank and opened up the two nipples underneath, reconnected the hoses - but now I'm losing fuel out of one of them! My last fill up I only got 90kms from the entire tank haha.

    I've been reading that some speedys have a check valve or something on the tank breather hose but I don't see any, they are just plain tubing.

    Any ideas? I'm stumped and scared to ride it right now haha.

    Thanks guys!

    One line drains anything that goes into the external recess, the other line is a vent from within the tank. Neither line should have a check valve. As delivered, there was a check valve on the vent line. It would fail and prevent the tank from venting, so if you have one, remove it.
    The easiest way to keep the drain line clear, is every time you fill up, slightly over fill. The fuel will go out the drain, keeping the line clear..
    So long, and thanks for all the fish..

    What would cause the squirting fuel onto the left side of the bike? A buddy of mine suggested I should maybe look at the fuel pressure regulator? I just checked my oil too, I think it smells slightly of gas but it won't light with a match.
