97 AIR VENT CONTORL VALVE 1500 gas leak sometimes -CAP CAME Rea

Postby CaptainDave » Tue Mar 18, 2014 11:15 pm



please HELP - we seek AIR VENT CONTROL VALVE for 97 1500 SE (CA model) -just behind the cruise control actuator on left side center of bike- the cap/top is OFF of my unit and it leaks gas sometimes- DO I NEED THE WHOLE unit or just the cap ?- and do you have it - or just the whole thingcan I talk to you about this pleasewhy did the cap come of of this unit ? - is this a normal problem ?looks like a mouse made a small home above the intake manifold this winter - may have chewed soemthing up in there - and now I got problems ?- it now has developed a FLAT SPOT at cruise in the throttle - but seems to go away- runs pretty good still overall - but maybe getting worse over time it seems- I smelled gas - so we pulled the side cover and saw the MISSING TOP CAP to the unit - and then it leaked about 6"x6" of gas under center of bike - and then it stops when the value inside the unit goes back to where it should -odd challenge.HOPE U UNDERSTAND this and know how I can fix ;-) - Capt D-retired

I had a look at the fiche for the 1997 California Emissions equipment. Is the item you're referring to in this diagram?
