since a dealer service noted occasional rough running and low power, also had a battery issue at the same time which confused things, having changed battery found problem not apparent after refuelling so looked at the breathers on the tank

the two breathers run down the right side of the engine and I found both the lower half's not connected, I assume an error at the dealer, but would have thought things would still be ok as pipes tank side still open ended. anyway connected lower parts and all appears well so can only assume that pipe clip on open end had closed up the pipe as it didn't have the male to male connector inside it?

so if your tank comes off make sure these pipes are connected when re fitted and all the pipes are kink free and not choked by too tight ty wraps

These breathers can be clamped fuel tank if installed incorrectly.

They are specially made detachable in the middle, so that when removing the fuel tank do not remove the entire tube.
