For the California and Southeast Asia models, note the
For the California and Southeast Asia models, if
gasoline, solvent, water or any other liquid enters
the canister, the canister's vapor absorbing capac-
ity is greatly reduced. If the canister does become
contaminated, replace it with a new one.
Be sure to plug the evaporative fuel return hose to prevent
fuel spilling before fuel tank removal.
Spilled fuel is flammable and can be explosive un-
der certain conditions. For California and South-
east Asia models, be careful not to spill fuel through
the return hose.
If liquid or gasoline flows into the breather hose, remove
the hose and blow it clean with compressed air.
Be careful of fuel spillage from the fuel tank since fuel still
remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump.
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explo-
sive under certain conditions, creating the poten-
tial for serious burns. Store the fuel tank in an area
which is well-ventilated and free from any source of
flame or sparks. Do not smoke in this area. Place
the fuel tank on a flat surface and plug the fuel pipes
to prevent fuel leakage.
Fuel Tank Installation
Note the above WARNING (see Fuel Tank Removal).
Check that the dampers [A], pad [B] and trims [C] are in
place on the frame and the fuel tank.
If the dampers, pad or trims are damaged or deteriorated,
Install the drain hose and clamp securely.
Run the hoses correctly (see Cable, Wire, and Hose Rout-
ing section in the Appendix chapter).
