Fuel Dump PAGE...
Fuel Door Warpage... This little bad boy was causing some type of obtruction when I tried to use the reserve setting. So, whatever, Yamaha had in mind, is now HISTORY... I reinstalled the lower screen without the trap door.
Be forewarned. If you screw up, the gas tank comes out the engine compartment area. Wouldn't that just SUCK.

-The rubber sewer line connector over the 3"OD Aluminum Tubing.
-The "insinkerator" flange. The heart of the system!
CThis is the flange installed. I used JB weld on the second installation with SST wood screws. The first one, I used a rubber gasket and 1211 with machine screws. The 1211 and the rubber gasket kept pulling out. The JB weld is stronger/tighter/cleaner/ and does not break down around gas. Notice the black paint on the flange, and the remnants of it on top of the tank? I used spray paint to mark the holes for drilling.The insinkerator, er... high tech quick dump flange mounted with #4 screws, nylocks, fender washers.
Final assembly mounted on top of the fuel tank. This one was using the rubber gasket and machine screws.
-1/4" anodized support plate installed.

Holes are drilled in the rear of the hood area, behind the lip to support the plate.
-Side pic of stock hood hinge, before cutting.
-Side pic of modded hood hinge, after grinding. Unfortunately, I went TOO far. The hood installed hits the top deck. Whoops....Another $50+ dollar mistake. However, it has lasted a few months now. I put a cushion on the outside of the plastic hood assembly to help it not break. So far, so good. However, it's just a matter of time.
It's pretty much complete. However, now I've made an internal vent system..
