Fuel Tank Vacuum
Hey Guys, Just did a major service on my 2002 K1200RS, including new fuel filter. When I got to the second servo (after filling a tank and riding 350kms till almost empty) I noticed that the flip-lid for the fuel tank was VERY hard to lift open and once I got it just open i noticed that it was due to a vacuum inside, obviously the tank isn't breathing anymore.. where do i start to check/fix this ? clearly I have all the flow lines correct otherwise I wouldn't have gone anywhere, I thought I had connected the breather lines correctly, but it seems not. Do I need to pull the tank off and pull it apart again and double check all this ?
