Re: [ST] Help request


"Maybe" I can help. There should be three connections on the tank (aside
from fuel and electrical) which are on the right rear lower portion of the
tank. The one that runs horizontal coming off the middle section of the
plate should connect to the airbox, the front most of the 2 which point down
should connect to the hose with the "valve" and the rear one connects to a
hose that runs down to the space between the engine and swingarm. I don't
think the one with the valve connects anywhere, but I'm not sure. This is
all from memory and to be used only for a 'quick' help.
