    2017 1200 grandtouring se gas tank pressure on warm days
    Posted by stzenon demon on Thursday, March 30, 2017 6:47 AM

    I have seen pressure in gas tank after stopping on warm days (32 to 40 deg f ) I know there is a check valve for a vent,will it let off pressure as needed,also lots of under hood heat not getting out has caused a little extra stress on belt life,any answers to this

    Under hood heat also adding to the pressure

    Unfortunatly the check valve is not going to let any air out of the tank, you will need to purge it by opening up the fill cap.You could however remove the check valve and do an old school venting system with the elongated hose in the manner like pre rev chassis ski-doo's were done, As far as under hood heat goes there are alot of venting options through ski-doo's accesory lines or the aftermarket has many options for hood and pan vents.
