I looked up the European manual, and on Page 47, it shows the item and how to drain it. It is on the port side of the GW. The European manual can be downloaded, and is very informative.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

On a fiche schematic there is a storage tank close by the air filter box which the air breather tube A connects to- could this be where the blockage is? It is number 25 on this schematic.

thx. Liq, I saw that,, have been trying to figure some way of getting to it,, short of a cutting torch. I think maybe some of the guys who have had trouble with oil leaks (around shift shaft seal)may have the same problem that's how I discovered the pressure after putting 2 of them in bike.

Just been reading my Clymer manual which covers 1988 to 1992 models, and it mentions the purge control valve on California models only and it seems to be behind the left hand fairing inner cover which will entail a lot of plastic removal and also the reverse gear lever. Seat, fairing pockets,radio shroud, upper covers, then lower cover after removing reverse lever and edge trim.
It shows a picture of the location and it is on its side round and black with hoses leading out of it just to the right and up a bit from the reverse lever connection point as far as I can see.

I don't know if that helps at all.
