  • Float bowl vent

    While removing my carb to clean it over the weekend I noticed there was an open connection just above the coasting enricher cover on the left side of the carb.

    After looking through the shop manual, I see that it is the float bowl vent, and is normally connected to a solenoid valve up near the front of the frame.

    I was was unable to find out what the purpose of this valve was, or why the PO would remove it, but what I really want to know is if I can just attract a vent line to the carb and route it down just to keep road debris or water out.

    Thanks.

    I've never heard of a solenoid valve for the float bowl vent. From the factory it had a rubber hose going to the back of the air cleaner housing. If yours has any type of solenoid maybe it has something to do with California emissions and a charcoal canister. But the non Cali bikes don't have one.

    I just checked the manual and see it in there a couple times about a solenoid. I have no idea where that comes from or what they are talking about. I have never seen one and there wasn't one on my bike. Mine and others that I have seen went to the air cleaner housing

      Will just put a vent hose on it then since my air box is gone now.

      Thanks.

        Most run a hose to under the bike. it will divert gas to the ground in the event you ever have carb puke.
