Fuel breather pipes
« on: October 16, 2021, 07:40:41 PM »
Hi folks,
Just got a Tiger 800Xc from someone, very cheap as it was slightly wounded. Anyway took the tank off and no breather pipes, previous owner had no knowledge (whatever) and blamed a garage. Anyone any ideas as to where each pipe goes please?
Cheers
Steve

Les 2 parallles en arrire sont relis au rservoir d'essence.ils ont un diamtre diffrents. l'un permet la mise l'air, et le second pour vacuer le trop plein.

Le troisime plus vers l'avant est reli au vase d'expansion du liquide de refroidissement. Il permet d'vacuer un trop plein.

The English version of this very useful explanation:

The 2 parallels at the back are connected to the gas tank; they have a different diameter. one allows the vent, and the second to evacuate the overflow.

The third forward is connected to the coolant expansion tank. It allows an overflow to be evacuated.

And it should be obvious from the connectors what diameter pipe you need.  You could always buy the genuine Triumph spares if money is no object.
Just doing as much as I can for as long as I can.
