K100 fuel pump

Postby keiththeoutfitter1 » Fri May 25, 2018 1:20 pm

The fuel pump has been taken out of son-in-laws K100 8v.
I am about to fit a replacement but do not know where the rubber tube from the strainer goes. It obviously exits upwards through the slot in the pump mounting plate but could someone tell me where does it go from there, please?

On the left side in the front of the filler cap you find a spigot.

Is that at the top or bottom of the tank and what is it for? I am not near the bike at the moment.
Thanks,
Keith

At the top, could also be on the rear of the filler cap.....depending on year model.
It's connected to the tank ventilation system and should prevent the pump from cavitating.
