Hello, my friends!
I finally cracked the vapor accumulation problem in my wee.
Though I am not much of a mechanic, I gave up on Suzuki and decided to take the tank off and check all the circuit.
To my perplexity, i discovered the problem in less than 10 minutes. The hoses for vapor collection to the canister and for water drainage from around the cap were inverted, each connected to the wrong tube out of the tank. There was even water accumulated in the vapor hose, before the gasoline check valve. I purchased this byke a few weeks ago, and the previous owner must have the tank connections inverted.
After re-inverting the hoses, the problem was gone. So much for Suzuki service... it is my first Suzuki after 45 years of Hondas, and I never encountered such an incompetent/negligent service.
Thank you all for your advice, for the diagrams and for the discussions that made it possible for me to solve the problem. This is a great forum!
