Evaporative Emission Control System
Separator Operation Test
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explo-
sive under certain conditions. Make sure the area
is well-ventilated and free from any source of flame
or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot
light. Do not smoke. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Remove the seat and left side cover (see Frame chapter).
Connect the hoses to the separator.
Disconnect the breather hose from the separator, and in-
ject about 20 mL of gasoline [A] into the separator [B]
through the hose fitting.
Disconnect the evaporative fuel return hose [C] from the
fuel tank [D]
Run the open end of the return hose into the container
level with the tank top [E].
Start the engine, and let it idle.
If the gasoline in the separator comes out of the hose, the
separator works well. If it does not, replace the separator
with a new one.
