Fuel leaking from "cup" behind carbs

Post by paddyfm »



I've a 76 GW. Fuel that goes into 'cup' then has overflow hose leading to bottom of bike is leaking from cup. What am I attempting to describe & what are possible fixes? Cup appears to be plastic & I'm unable to find on any schematics.

The cup should not have gas in it...It is a crank case vapor canister.
The part is listed in the parts manual...Honda Goldwing GL1000 1975 to 1977 Honda Parts Manual-917C0...
Page 37 part 19.
The "cup" may be able to be removed,inspected and cleaned.

The purpose of the canister is to contain and isolate vaporized gases from your crankcase. Those gases can turn into a gooey liquid inside the canister and, occasionally, need to be cleaned out. If the fluid is running from your canister, the drain hose going from it to the ground is probably clogged. As stated above, remove the canister, clean it and both of the tubes.
