Default Re: Fuel tank breather blocked

According to my manual theres two pipes with one as you say a filler drain and the other an air vent which does its job via the cap. However as Orangebud put in his initial post the cap has been dismantled and cleaned twice it only leaves the air vent pipe as a possible source of the problem....

Bikes destined for USA ( like most cars in rest of world ) have a charcoal canister at the end of a breather pipe from fuel tank - supposed to neutralise the petrol fumes - maybe Suzuki leave the pipe and just do not fit the canister for models outside USA.
