Question re rubber hoses near kick stand
« on: July 03, 2014, 03:17:35 am »
I just got my 800k service done today and brought the bike home and parked it in the garage.  I noticed what I thought was the smell of gasoline or something like that.  When I bent down to inspect I noticed drippings on the floor coming from a small rubber hose at the bottom of bike, near the kick stand.  There are two of these hoses that seem to end here and are not attached.  Is this normal?

Yes, that is the fuel tank overflow hose. If fuel gets spilled in the ring that surrounds the tank opening it will drain down that hose the exits near the kickstand. My guess is your dealer got a little sloppy when putting fuel back in your tank and it is nothing to worry about. If you keep seeing fuel from this hose then your gas cap might not be fully sealing.

Thanks TerryB ...Do you know what the second hose is for?  They did not put gas in for me that why I was surprised by this drip.  Seems to have stopped so you are right...  Do they need to be reconnected or just left to hang?  As you can see I am not technical

The hose on the right is the tank breather hose. Half way down this hose is the roll over valve. In normal operation the roll over valve is open and allows air into the tank to stabalize pressure. If the bike is laid down or flipped, the valve will close preventing fuel from escaping.

Yes, both hoses just hang on the underside of the bike.

G'day Scotty,

To perform a service the fuel tank needs to be removed as it covers the airbox, engine, in fact mostly everything. As part of the removal the contents need to be emptied. As mentioned above the tank will be refilled from what ever it was emptied into e.g. jerry can. Therefore, it is likely the knucklehead who re-filled your fuel tank spilled a little bit of petrol around the filler ring.

Coconut and others have posted very helpful how to instructions, with photo's, in this forum. I'm no technician but with the how to guides, the TTSE service manual, and good advice from this forum I'm confident in doing most of my maintenance.

Cheers,
Wherever you go, there you are.

Hi Scotty,

If you take a look at this web site :  Triumph MC Parts you will find lots of helpful drawings
of various parts laid out in different sections,  and the cost of replacing them !

If you select "Fuel System" from the "Category" drop down menu, and then
"Fuel Tank & Fittings TROPHY 1215 SE" from the "Matching Assemblies" menu,
you will end up at this page : Fuel Tank & Fittings
where there is a drawing showing the pipes you refer to at Item #26 and #28  :028:

Cheers   :821:

Not to hack a thread, but why is that all Triumph part sites and the manual list our headlight bulbs as H7 when they are H4? H7 bulbs are single element.
