    Hi
    Does anyone know the best/easiest place to make the vacuum connection on the 2015 cr? A picture would be good.
    Thanks
    Eric

    Right hand side just under the tank, you can see the vac connector pipe, snip the tube
    and fit the T piece, it's a bit tricky, need long nosed pliers.  I did mine without lifting
    the tank, would be easier if it was lifted up or off altogether.  Did find a pic on tinternet
    somewhere showing which hose to use, might have been on the normal vfr rather than
    the crossrunner.

    Thanks looks easy with the tank on. I have taken a picture of mine. If it is the correct one the image might help others. Thanks derekwadd.

    Yup, that's the one. Just be careful to keep a hold of the inside bit when you cut it, three pairs of
    hands, hehe

    Hi great picture!  :152:

    I am having a go at this myself soon.

    Did you manage to make the vacuum connection without lifting the tank?

    Cheers,

    Gary

    Hi
    I have not tried yet (I am on holiday) but I think it will be easy without lifting the tank. I will tape some string on to the pipe both sides of where I am going to make the cut so the ends do not fly back out of reach when I make the cut.

    Thanks Eric,

    The string is a great idea it would be just my luck to lose the ends of the cut tube and then end up dismantling the bike to find them!
