There is a vent line from the tank, and the hotter it gets, the more gas vapor will leave through it to compensate for gas expansion. It's normal, unless you're sreing gasoline drops on the garage floor.
I get that often at 1/2 to 3/4 tank coming home in the afternoon if I put the bike right into the garage with temps upper 80s and higher.
I assumed it was the heat from the engine causing the fuel to warm a bit more and venting. Much more noticiable if I left the bike in the sun for a few hours and the fuel in the tank is hot already. I have a small shop fan that I leave on to help cool the bike if I am closing the garage door quickly now. It seems to have helped.
When it gets hot out gas will expand. There for you will get gas out of the over flow tube or you'll wind up with the vapors. Were talking for the most part 90's plus. If its 80 out side it could be 90 in the garage. Put a thermometer in the garage there cheap.
When it gets hot out do not fill tank all the way.
They always say to fill up in the morning cause thats when you get more gas for your money it hasn't expanded.
Has anyone taken their cam tensioners apart? Looking at the Victory parts break down it appears as though they sell the hydraulic tensioner seperate from the body (the large aluminum body thats exposed). I had mine out the other day to double check the timing after my cams. when I pulled the...
The wifey's XC has had a valve train rattle on and off since it was new.
There was a constant tick like a lash adjuster that wasn't completely pumped up. It was there since the bike was first fired up. Everyone hoped it would go away but it didn't.
It got worse over the first 7000 miles...
I'd like to take the front cam tensioner out of my 2014 106 and exchange it with the front cam tensioner in my wife's 2014 106 to see if it corrects a noise noise that comes and goes withher front cylinder valve train.
Here's my question to those familiar with this.
Do I need to pull the...
