Evap Purge Control Solenoid Valve

Post by dicdo »

I have a 2009 GL1800. I have issues similar to others on this message board where I can stop to refuel and upon opening the gas cap, quite a bit of pressure has built up in the fuel tank. This started about a year ago.

I've inspected the hose routing from the fuel tank all the way through the system, and I have free flow of air when the valve is removed from the circuit and replaced with a hose fitting. The solenoid operates correctly when tested, removed from the bike. However, I get no voltage at the solenoid when the bike is off, starting or running.

When is voltage applied to the solenoid? What activates the solenoid (key on and engine running?) and how do I troubleshoot this electrical issue?
