Hi all

Can someone please let me know whether there is supposed to be a hose clamp on the connection to the fuel pressure return valve (is that the right name?) that connects to the underside of the tank?  I have had my bike for a few months now (98 Special/Bassa) and it did not have this hose clamped.  I thought this a bit strange as the hose is under pressure but it didn't leak.  I have just fitted a new fuel tap and changed the fuel filter (what a fiddly job that is).  On reassembling and starting up fuel was spraying from the hose junction.  I have now fitted a clamp and the leak is gone but was it supposed to have one if the first place?

Thanks

Is there any evidence that a clamp was on there before?

I could be wrong but as far as I can see there should be no undue pressure in the return to the tank.

No undue pressure, but fuel present all the time. If this is your bike, there is a clamp on the pipe.

Thanks to all for your replies.  My bike has the valve attached to the underside of the tank.  The manual does not mention a clamp to undo when removing the tank.  Anyway, mine now has a clamp fitted and no more fuel spraying everywhere (which is a bit nerve-racking when it happens).
