Fuel Vent Problem w/ my 2005 400 LE
I am having a fuel vent problem with my 05 400LE. Fuek is leaking from the vent hose. It is like it is siphoning itself out through the vent hose. Alot of fuel, I filled up and have driven approx. 10 miles and it is down to 1/4 of a tank.
It appears to be a design flaw in the way the vent hose runs up throught the handlebars. First of all the bracket for the bracket for the speedo housing rubs up against the vent hose. This will eventually cut the hose which is what happened to my first vent hose. Now that I have another one it is constantly leaking gas.
How can I solve this?? It is VERY frustrating. The housing for the speedo will I guess not let the vent go high enough to keep it from losing gas.
I have owned many ATV's before this one and have NEVER had this problem. This is my first Arctic Cat.
I seems pretty rediculous the way the fuel vent is set up.
Also, my original vent hose is no longer in service and I am having trouble finding a new one that will fit it right without coming off the nipple constantly.
Anyone experience this with their cat. It is not an issue on the new ones as the gas tank is relocated to under the seat.
