Easy question

Postby bic_bicknell » Fri May 23, 2014 6:02 am

New here but I have a quick question. Took the tank off my H2c to adjust steering head bearings and forgot which fuel lines fit onto the three fuel tap outlets. Does it actually matter? Also I see there is a clear breather pipe running out from the vacuum part of the tap. Where is this meant to lead to? On this bike it just sort of feeds past the middle carb onto the top of the engine. There are no clips or clues as to it's proper routing. Is this OK?

Thanks.

The fuel pipes can go anywhere, however, the clear vacuum pipe needs to go on the brass outlet on the front of the right carb - so it works the fuel tap

no trouble if you don't mix the breather pipe from the vacuum part of the fuel tap with carbs pipe.
But genuine Kawsaki pipes haven't the same lenght so you can easily fit them right without thinking 8-)

Brilliant!

I would not have noticed that the other pipe was the vacuum switch operating means. Next outing, (in a few minutes), would have been a bit curtailed with no petrol getting through, ;) At least this simple stuff I only have to learn the once! Just got a Haines manual through the post today so maybe I'll be a bit better informed next time.

Thanks for quick response.

Be very careful using Haynes manual as it can get you in trouble!

Not on a H2c - If built correctly, it will have a clear plastic pipe for the vacuum ;)
