VACUUM TUBES AND SEALS

Postby Jack » Tue Aug 19, 2008 12:16 pm

Vacuum tubes and rubber gaskets, o-rings, etc need to be replaced after a few years. I used 5/16 rubber windshield washer hose to replace the vac-tubes. I left the vac-tube connected to the gas tank a few iches longer to make it easier in removing/installing the tank.
The chrome vapor tubes below the carbs have a flat o-ring seal. They are replaced by #123 o-rings. It is a fairly simple task. Simply loosen everything above to allow wiggle room to remove and re-install the tubes. If one begins to leak, you might as well replace all since they all must be loosened to replace one.
Thankfully, Honda bikes are easy to work on and rarely need maintenance above routine.
