    Hey Guys,

    I seem to have a noisey Evap valve( the one which sits on top of the airbox)

    Is it common for it to tap/tick away like mad. Ive disconnected it which shut it up but Ive plugged it back in for now until I can find a replacement. If its rebuildable then Ill rip it apart but its a wee plastic unit so can timagine thats the case.

    Any suggestions as to why its so noisey?
