Question 96 1500 fuel tank vacuum locked??

Anyone ever had the fuel tank create such a vacuum that it kills the bike? could anyone point me to any information on the tank vent system. I've got a FSM but dont have it with me.....

I had that problem a few years ago. My `98 S.E. would slow down to the point I would have to pull to the side of the road for a while. Engine never died though. In a little while it would be fine again. Cure was to take gas cap off and soak it in Seafoam overnight. Blow out next day with compressed air. NO problems at all since doing this.

I corrected the problem this morning by leaving the cap loose. I will go over the cap as soon as possible. I just wasn't sure if there were any devices connected to the hose that runs from the cap down into the bike. Thanks for the help!!

Also, another condition I noticed, was the fuel guage was all the way down below "E" and I just filled up last nigh....about 25 miles ago. I'm curious to know if its electrical or if the prolonged vacuum condition overnight could have possibly waterlogged the float?

The fuel gauge is a common issue with the 1500.it can be adjusted by bending the float inside the tank,some just live with it.

Oops mis read the issue,I doubt the vacuum is the issue with the gauge but I don't have any idea what's going on.

Extremely unlikely both issues showed at the same time. For the gauge to be off is one thing but not on "E" when the tank is near full. I bet you have a wiring issue related to the pump and gauge.

Sorry Texas, We were both typing.
