I finally thought i would get to solving the gas odor issue i have when i fill my tank over half full and have read dozens of posts about the vapor canisters. After taking out the canister, i found that its totally empty and has no charcoal remaining in it. The PO must have dumped out the carcoal for some reason. He also put on an aftermarket KN air filter. My canister has three connects on it. One goes to the the liquid check valve near the tank and one ties into the base of the carb. My third one labeled "purge" did not have a hose connected to it - is it supposed to? And if so, where? I see the 74 models have a connection to the air cleaner intake but not sure if this is the case for the 75 model .
Also, a previous post said the canisters were easy to rebuild. I cannot find a way to take the unit apart to fill it back up with charcoal. If some knows a trick, please let me know.
