Anyone know the symptoms of an evap canister that is not functioning properly?
I was sloppy one day filling my gas tank and made a little bit of a mess (not horrible, but a "Doh!" kind of moment). I'm convinced that since then I hear gas pressure being released more often through the gas cap and smell more gas fumes when sitting on the bike stopped at a traffic light. I'm not smelling fumes all the time, only when it vents (I think), which it seems to do more frequently, even when the outside temp isn't particularly warm.
Maybe when I was sloppy I got gas in some tube that connects to the canister which then got wet and now isn't properly doing it's job? I don't know, just running thoughts through my head.
Edit: I spoke to Kawi. The guy I spoke to said that if the canister gets wet, to take it off and dry it out for a day or so. He also said that if it were wet and clogged that the engine would run poorly. I'm not having any engine problems and if my canister did get wet, it's certainly dry by now and he thought it was not a problem and that it sounds like the gas tank is venting as it should.
