All you would have to do is get moisture in the tube and it would run into the carburetor. If you don't want to make the fifteen cent and fifteen minute mod that is good with me and anyone else. We can stand on the side of the water crossing and watch you push your Gen2 to the land.Uncle 'Mater,
(and everyone else w/ gen 2),
I took that clear pinkish line and just re-ran it up under the tank.
I'd have to flood the airbox before the vent tube clogged. LOL
Steve what year is your KLR?OK, I'm likely to do something this silly, and I've already had it coughing twice now, so does anyone have a diagram of this T/Y mod? Being a newbie I've not yet removed the tank, but was considering doing so to check the spark plug soon. I could check it out and be creative on my own, but I thought I'd check to see if there's a standard configuration.
Is the tube you are refering to the clear one that vents the carb or the black one that vents the gas tank and is located at the rear of the tank and runs down past the shock into the swingarm?The T or Y mod is different for Gen1 and Gen2 KLRs.
Gen1 - stock has a vent tube that runs down along the rear shock through the swingarm.
The T / Y mod should also extend the tube under the seat on top of the airbox.
Gen2 - stock has a vent tube that runs under the seat on top of the airbox.
The T / Y mod should also extend the tube down along the rear shock through the swingarm.
Ya think Kawasaki will figure out what a vent tube does and when?
