might as well. its easy enough.
To me it's debateable whether the need is there. I guess if you dont do it you possibly can get water and drt in your tank. Then you get clogged fuel sock and in turn possible engine problems from dirty fuel and possible failed fuel pump.

I replied to ur myspace msg.............................................

well what can happen is dirt,sand, etc.. can work its way in thru the vent, even though there's a check valve on it, its not full proof. Trash gets in your tank, it can clog up the fuel pump, injectors, etc.. etc... Leave th check valve there, just take the little short hose off and put a long enough one one to run up under your pod. Cheap easy and quick assures you that you shouldnt ever have to worry about it sucking anything in....

I thought that is was discussed on this Forum before that the 08+ had the gas vent ran through the frame and into to pod? I swear that was on here once...

that's why i say it is debatable. if you look at the house routing diagrams in the manual you will see the vent runs into the frame at the rear the follow frame tube up front another tube connects to that and then to one of the 3 metal tubes under the pod. I will take some screen of the manual and update this thread.

The gas tank line is 1/4 inch off the check valve

That line was talk about at one time. The 07-below are the same way with it going in the frame and back out up front. I know the thingy that goes in the frame can come out fairly easy in the front if somethings kinda pushing on it. When I put the catch can on I notcied it off case the cranck case vent was resting on it, going to the pod. Which it didnt matter because I had the gas take vent ran to the pod already but thought I would throw that at ya'll!!!
