Hey all, it's been a while but I'm slowly catching up and reviving my intrest in the Zone.
I'll inform you on the reason of absence with plenty of pics soon.

Anywho, I'm rebuilding a US spec 'O2 TLR and it has some kind of breather set-up I think.
I have no idea how this works cause my '99 euro TLR doesn't have it at all.

There's a hose going from the front cilinder head to the rear where it joins up with a line from the rear cilinder and then there is on long hose. I don't know where it should go but I think it goes to the trunk of the bike, the hose is definately long enough for that.
I also have the black cilinder/bottle which I presume is the breather and I plugged the hose onto that.
The breather however has several more plugs for hoses and I have absolutely no idea where they should lead to.
I can't even find it in my workshop manual.

Can anyone shed a light?

I'm sorry there aren't any pics but I have no internet at home yet and I can't upload pics at work... :banghead

We don’t have them in Australia but it sounds like the PAIR system or the
Evap emission system

Section 9 of the manual has the details
Most people get rid of it all

I took out the PAIR valve already.
It's something different.
Thanks for your reply though :thumbup

If you check ronayers.com is on the "E33 Canister" microfiche.
I'll try and get a pic online sometime soon...

E33 Sounds like a california model, right? They have something special for strang emission rules, perhaps someone from over there can explain.

Yeah.

Right now I'm thinking about just closing the hose loop.
I don't think it's a vital part seeing as my bike doesn't seem to need it.

BTW Rufer, I'm sorry I couldn't come and visit you at Francorchamps, I would've loved to but we moved the 30th of August and the house wasn't even finished yet.
I've been so busy over the last month that I'm about to break down and collapse...
I hope you had a great time though! :thumbup

It’s the Evaporative emission control system
One of the hoses is the tank vent , if you block it
The bike will die after running for a while

Wow...
How come my '99 doesn't have that?

Do you have any idea of where it's supposed to be located?
So now I've gotta find a hose to go from the tank to that canister.

What about the other two plugs on it?

Looking at the drawing in the manual the tank vent runs to a fuel shutoff valve
Below the rear tank mount.
Then to the tank pressure control valve under the seat
Then to the canister in the tail
The other hose runs from the canister in the tail to both throttle bodies

Yep, rather than vent to the air, CA models have the tank vented into a charchoal canister in the trunk. I don't really know what is required to bypass it, although it has been done. I'm sure someone here will have all the details soon enough:)

I just romoved the canister, joined the two hoses and routed the hose to the belly pan. there is some blow by but not much with which to be concerned.
