FYI on the PC Carb Vent-
The velcro comes off from inside your airbox pretty easily. Mine just dangles in the airbox now. If you haven't already, some good glue on clean surface may be the ticket to getting it to stay put.
Ya know, that clear tank looks sweet on the blue beast.
Take care Kaze,

Since the installation I have literally burried both bikes in the mud and have not had anymore problems.
We additionally had problems with routing the right side fuel line across the front of the carb as the heat from the head coupled with the movement of the hose while riding was causing some serious chafing and was only a matter of time before it would have been cut and sprayed fuel all over a hot header.....Roasted gonads are not a favorite of mine. So, we routed the hoses on both bikes across the intake side of the carb and it works great without the danger.

Initially I just replaced and routed the top vent lines to the air box and the bottom lines downward. However the first time out it vapor locked again. It had something to do with Bryan's crashing and the top lines had gas in them and lock up the entire vent system
Wow out of a lot of bikes that route the line up this is the first time I have heard of this problem, (I personally have done 4 bikes this way). Quite the combination to get it to lock up, mud clogging both down tubes, and gas in both up tubes. Must have been a good crash and low points in the up tubes. It could happen even if you have 6 vent tubes, when they are T'd too, if the low points are not eliminated. Lots of tubing and connection too and to complicated for a simpliton like me. Clean job and nice pics though, good job!!!

Also...Where the directions say to cut off 3 inch sections (DON'T)...Just cut them to fit over the airbox outlet....Three inches is nott enough...You will still have plenty of hose left over to complete the job.
