    They are part of the breather as Barry said and have a roll over valve in each to prevent fuel leakage in a roll over situation.

    They also tend to have cracked or split hoses and fittings, that only leak fuel when the tank is filled to the top..... o_O

    You’ll notice fuel dripping onto the ground, as you return from the payment cashier. ;)

    Gees would have never guessed that one.. The hoses are a bit average so will change them when I put them back.
    thanks..

    Be very careful with the rollover valves if replacing the grommets or hose as they are real brittle & will snap off very easily. Expensive to replace.

    Thanks Luckphil, and rare probably. Bit cold today for rolling around on the floor to get them out luckily.
    Will attack it tomorrow.

    Good idea to mark the oriantation of the valve tube by marking its location on the tank with a marker as they are a bitch to get in if not sitting properly.
