    I am recouping nicely.

    I got the same kind of injury a few years ago. It felt like being stabbed when I sneezed. It happened when my front wheel washed out while braking through a left turn on pavement. I hit on my left side, but my right side got muscle tear. I went to get Xrays but had no broken bones, I credit the armor in my Motoport suit for saving me a trip the Hospital. It healed up fine by itself.

    I was really annoyed by my bike stalling out on me in Devil's Bowl during our ride, so I was going to buy extra vent tubing and reroute my carb vents higher, but found this product.

    It looks like this is the way to go, so I'm planning to get one for my XR650L.

    Just FYI.

    I had the same thing happen to me once Earl.

    I've since put a Y in it. One goes to the skidplate (to allow gas to come out), the other goes up into the compartment above the tanks (for a snorkle effect during water crossings). It works well.
