Re: Fuel Tank Drains
I had no replies to this at the time. In the end I removed the fuel cap and
blew compressed air down the drain hole in the cap well. The drain hole is
intelligently sited on the left hand side of the machine so it is at the
lowest point when the bike is on its side stand. The air exited the
vertical drain tube on the right hand side of the machine. I reconnected
the rubber drain tube to this stub.
Still don't know what the other, centrally mounted, drain is for. It is not
connected on my UK machine. Maybe something to do with the famous roll-over
valve on US machines?
I have the Triumph service manual but it is silent on these drains.
I am sure my old 1200 Trophy (1991) did not have 2 stubs on the tank or I
would have been through this one before.
