So i recently snorkeled my brute but, ran into a problem. I ran the fuel vent line to the handle bars and now when i trail ride fast and hard gas pukes out of the vent line. I' ve checked to make sure there are no kinks in the line and pulled the check valve off and made sure it wasn't clogged. Could the gas cap be bad, or the check valve, or maybe its the heat from the exhaust? It seems to start puking out gas when I ride fast through rough areas of the trails. It has done it when the tank is full all the way down to when it almost empty. Any suggestions would be appreciated got get it to stop before it catches on fire. By the way its an "08.

I read an article about this problem. Several owners of 08 brutes have reported this issue. I personally have not had this problem. Ill have to find the info again to see if a resolution or reason was listed. It was posted shortly after the 08's were released.

Don't know?? Are you sure you have the check valve turned the right way? You should be able to blow air through the check valve in the direction of the tank very easily but to blow air through the valve away from the tank is very hard. I know that sounds crazy but it the best way i know how to explain it.

Could just be a bad valve from the factory. You might have been having this problem before snorkeling it and not realized it since the gas was flowing into the frame before.

I Made sure its pointing the right direction. But you could be right about it doing it for a while before I snorkeled it. Does anybody got an extra check valve sitting around. Have checked price from kawi but I bet its atleast $40 for a cheap piece of plastic.

you can probably get a check valve from a hardware store.

Is there an update to this situation? My 06 was doing this last weekend. I was slightly concerned due to the gas dripping directly on to the exhaust pipe.:bigeyes:

What mods are done to you bike. I heard someone say that it happened to them one time, the heat from the exhaust and the gas cap being on to tight Caused presure in the tank and made the gas flow up the vent tube but don't quote me on this. If anyone needs the check valve pm me your adress I will get you the one off my 09. It's brand new and I never used it, I just ran a hose from the tank to the pod.
