17 is a Ventilation Valve 16 11 7 721 943

15 is a Connection Piece 61 66 1 382 908

The difference is that in the US hose 18 goes to the charcoal canister, while in Europe it goes . . .? Out the bottom of the bike I would presume.


Lukas, do you ever have a vacuum in your tank, when you open it air sucks in?

I haven't noticed a vacuum but I have only filled up the tank couple of times so far.

I will take a look where the hose goes this weekend, unless Griz below already got confirmation?

Do you know that for a fact? Then I don't have to dig around under the seat trying to trace mine.
