    hi,
    my bike stinks of fuel too. Coils are ok and it runs lean. I don't know about this pipe and the check.
    In the picture below there's someone that could indicate the pipe?


    thank you very much

    Wow, that low pressure return looks as bad as the one I'm replacing.

    Btw, those old clear vacuum lines are due for a change, too.
