Can anybody point me to the purge control valve (PCV) on my TB1600?
The shop manual tells how to test electrically but not where to find it.
I know I am just being anal but since DealerTool performs a PCV test, I should try to find out whether it is really working.

You should be able to start at the charcoal canister beneath the swing arm and trace the plumbing to the PV. Here’s a sketch from the service manual.

Thanks, Barmentr, you just solved my dilemma. It appears that I do not even have a PCV. From your diagram it seems they are only fitted to California bikes.
That explains why I was unable to detect a PCV valve operating when testing it with DealerTool.
