Hi all
After a bit of info please, not sure if this is the best section to post this.

I laid my bike down off road the other day at nearly standstill and fuel started coming out of one of the pipes at the bottom of the bike, now I know that it is not a fault but was wandering if there was something I could do to stop this if I did it again. ie could i fit a one way valve or something?

thanks in advance

ps no damage to the bike thanks to kappa crash bars :)

The fuel tank has to have the ability to vent so it has a vent in the top with a vent tube and one-way valve. When your bike tips over, this fills with fuel instead of fumes and drains out. Like others have said, don't tip the bike over and you won't spill fuel. :D

yeah thats what I thought just wandered if there was an easy way of stopping it flooding out ie 1 way valve. Never mind will try the option suggested :)
