Pictures first


990244



Than I opened it, but I dont remember if this is the right place of the tiny thing going on in there as well



Its not my fucking day.
It happened as I was preparing the tank cover for wrapping, the gascap somehow went lose and in the process of trying to pry it back in the hole, I broke that part.

Now I know how you fit the cap back in the whole, but meanwhile I'm stuck with a broken hose connection to wich I dont know what the function is.
Must be important since it has a small ball, a spring and another cylinder piece....

And on this exploded view the gascap only comes as one fucking unit of +200 euro's
I couldnt find the piece seperately....

Am I fucked and obliged to buy a whole new gascap unit?
Keyless I dont trust and if I would buy the key version, how can I still use my key? the lock mechanisme can be swapped out?


thx

There are some excellent adhesives these days ... maybe some type of Epoxy? I'm still using 2 part Epoxy myself. I've broken off hose nipples like yours before and used 2 part Epoxy to repair it. Depending on the environment the epoxy is expected to work within (various fumes and/or fluids) sticking a plastic hose nipple back in it's intended place should work fine. I suppose the worst than can happen is ~it won't work~ and you'll be no worse off than you are now with the broken part.

its the breather, for exicting fumes
so this is no biggy if not working properly?
Breather for fumes? ... or ... gas cap drain-back into the tank (for spilled fuel .. when refueling and a little bit gets around the fill-hole that fuel runs into the tank via that nipple/hose). Maybe?

got if 'fixed' with superglue

I already put on the hose and pulled it out gently, without breaking, so far so good for when assembly is due after wrapping.

And i got the order of the tiny parts figures out. Its cool :)

There small whole in the actual gas tank that lines up with another small whole in the gas cap.
Both seen here.



The fumes first go pass a ball


The ball fits in a space with some tabs that make the ball sit center


The opposite space, therein goes the spring and the metal circular piece with a whole in the middle



after the fumes passed the metal ball, they go underneath into a kind of hallway


As you can see there are 2 paths.
First leads to a void it seems, and I guess when this is full, it goes to the last one, wich leads to the space with the metal circular piece with a whole.

That space also has a whole on the other side, seen here


That whole looks like this on the outside


Wich is where our tube is located....

The whole space is coverd up with the rubber piece that seals the gascap with the hole in the gastank

I did the same thing. My mechanic said not to sweat it unless I’m feeling like I wanna drop a couple hundo for a replacement. I’ve done 4 track days in 95+ degree heat with no issues.

aight, guess that evap system isnt that important for the driving bit, but is more there for environmental and emissions concerns.

sooooooooo, the wrap is planned due the week of September 7th :confused:
When I disassembled the bodywork, I didnt take into account the guy might actually be booked and busy as fuck...wich seems to be the case here.

Soo, gonna put everything back on so I can ride in the meantime.
