    Hey everyone!

    I hope that all of you are hanging in there with the pandemic going on.

    I was working on the Stornello today, disconnecting the evap canister in preparation for the new mod file from Todd, and noticed that the tube under the motorcycle was hanging much lower than I recall it being previously. So I followed it up and found that it wasn't connected to anything any longer. Odd, since I haven't worked on the bike since it went into the shop to have the ABS/Traction Control issue resolved over the winter.

    As I continued looking and reading, I found that the tube on the right side of the evap canister was routed up and connected to the gas tank breather. I also couldn't find any other place where the disconnected hose I found was connected to.

    In the evap removal thread it indicates that there are three lines on the evap canister. One from the front of the tank through the orange/blue tip over valve to the left side of the canister, One from the left side of the canister through the brass barb/fitting to the intake manifold, and One from the right side of the canister to atmosphere.

    If that is correct, I'm curious how the right side hose got connected to the tank (service shop perhaps).

    Long story short, in stock configuration, with the evap connected, how many lines should exit the underside of the V7II? Or, to put it another way, should both vent lines from the gas tank connect to the evap canister?

    Thanks for taking a look and for any insights you guys/gals can offer.

    Joe

    One line should be a drain line from the tank fill area. That is to allow water to escape and not go into the fuel tank.

    There’s a evap system routing sticker under the seat. The canister will have one open fitting. All is pretty well covered in evap can elim thread in this section. You just have to read a little. ;)

    Thanks, for the comments.

    Interestingly, my canister had all three fittings connected, so it's an obvious variation. They all have caps on them now.

    As for reading, I can understand and appreciate your emphasis. Please note that I asked my question not for a lack of reading but because of the variation I found on my Stornello when compared to what I had read.
