forte odore benzina

Post by alessandro »



Buon giorno. Da una settimana con la moto ho fatto 4 rifornimenti e sento sempre forte odore di carburante, non perde sotto ma l'odore mi fa girare la testa. Ho smontato il fianco sinistro e ho trovato un tubo staccato al tre vie , ma il tubo non lo trovo, spero sia quello che puzza. Grazie

"Good morning. For a week with the bike I have made 4 refuelings and I always smell the strong smell of fuel, it does not leak underneath but the smell makes me dizzy. I disassembled the left side and found a detached three-way tube, but I can't find the tube, I hope that's the one that stinks. Thanks"

That "T" is supposed to be open. No tube is attached there. The fuel odor is not necessarily a sign of a malfunction. Open a window where you store the motorcycle.

That connection goes to the carbon fuel vapor canister, which is only installed on motorcycles destined for California. All other bikes have no connection, just like yours.

Questa connessione va alla bomboletta di vapore del carburante in carbonio, che è installata solo sulle moto destinate alla California. Tutte le altre bici non hanno connessione, proprio come la tua.

Could it be that you are overfilling the fuel tank when you put gas in your motorcycle?

Potrebbe essere che stai riempiendo troppo il serbatoio del carburante quando metti benzina nella tua moto?

Make sure there is no fuel leaking from the vacuum shutoff valve into the tray around the gas cap.
