702A05170, I don't know where you looked up that short hose at?

The parts screen I looked at for 09 KLR fuel tank vent hose, has part #702A05620 superceded to 702A051430.

05 is the Inside Diameter of the hose. 5mm
170 is the Length of the hose. 170mm=6 3/4". Too Short to work in this instance.

So 702A05620 seems correct for ID and Length.
Update #702A051430 for $21.17 USD for a yard and a half is also absurd.

Just get some 3/16" black vent hose/fuel hose from auto parts or hardware store.

I do wish that I could purchase Metric Sized I.D. fuel and vent hose in the USA!! I can't find any, anywheres!
Every outlet wants to sell fractional sizes Only! It Just doesn't fit the same.

will do pdwestman, I knew there was a cheaper option, I just didn't know the size or what it even went to. I will be stopping by the hardware or auto store on the way home from work. is 170mm going to be long enough?

The correct part # is 702A05620! 5mm I.D. x 620mm long!
About 24 inches of 3/16 inch tubing will route the possible fuel tank overflow down to the lower rear shock linkage. :)

My KLR650 has two of those hoses. :serious:

Seriously though, my ACE Hardware store has bulk reels of all different sizes of fuel resistant black hose/tubing, all at a reasonable price. They had a $2.50 key blank too. :smile2:

I figured there was a cheaper route to go, I do need to get keys made, I only have the one.

Time to stock up on 5mm tube

Bill10,
Then your bike has or had an evaporative emissions charcoal can on the Left Rear and is/was a California approved model!
A little bit different plumbing. ;)

Good information to know actually, I have looking at replacement parts and saw a used tank for a decent price but where mine had one tube, his had two, that makes sense if it was a Cali tank.
