Hello all, i have been reading this forum ever since I got my St 2002 in November last year and have picked up loads of info. I have now got a problem that I cant seem to find any links to.

Had to take my tank off to adjust the head and found that my Fuel preasure regulator has no pipe on it. Now I am not mechanically minded and go by the rule of thumb anything more than 2 pages in the haynes manual = put it in to a dealer.

Question 1
had a good look around and cant find any pipes that have no apparent home to go to so can u tell me where I should look or where said pipe should connect to.

Question 2
Bike seems to run fine apart from a bit too much popping when hot, do I need a pipe on it?

I believe that is the atmosperic reference for the regulator. They did not attach a tube.
It probably would have been better plumbed to the airbox on the intake side of the filter, but they left it open to atmospere. Prett7y mucg the same pressure.
Ride and don't worry.

TY for your replies, it was just that in the haynes manual it shows a pic with a tube fitted to the ***** thing, but they take it for granted that peeps like me know where it goes too as they have no ref to the tube just the regulator.

Unless it was on 00 bikes as this was the only haynes manual I have but I found out after they have a newer version out which covers 99-03 i think.

Will just carry on riding and next time i need to go under the tank will take it off completly and have a good scout around.

the hose that goes to the regulator comes out of a nub on the airbox. look for the dangling vacuum hose, and you have found it.
