Left Side Lower Vent

Postby Sprice » Fri Jul 03, 2015 11:49 am



I recently noticed that the left side lower vent does not close with the lower vent knob. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

The lever pops onto the veins, maybe popped apart. If broke they are cheap on ebay.

You need to go through all the steps to loosen your lower cowl.
Then just pull it away a little bit and you can see if the lever is in the groove.
if not, it's easy to pop in.

Which lower vent are you talking about? On the SE there are lower foot warmer vent that operate with a KNOB. The lower vent on the fairing that is about at your shin is operated by hand, the lever on it changes from hot air to cold air but does not operate the vent fins.

It is the foot warmer vent.

OK, you will still probably need to remove the panels to see if you can find the issue, but since I have the Interstate and not the SE (I don't have a knob), others probably will be able to help better.

Does it work properly otherwise? i.e. does it open and close with the knob, it just doesn't close all the way?

There is a cable that operates it, it is probably out of adjustment or might need a new cable

The right side opens and closes, the left remains open all the time.
