    Has anyone had any issues with the cap vent on an '86 vfr. Mine appears to be stuck.
    Thanks in advance

    California caps were not vented in 1986, emissions crap, any chance you have a cap tank matching issue?

    Very possible that this was originally a Cali bike but the fuel starvation issue just turned up in the last couple of months. Possible that it could be something else but all the arrows are pointing to a vent issue. Does anyone have a pic of the underside of a non-cali cap that I can use for comparison?

    Thanks Tedric.
    That looks a little different from mine. Hmmm?
