anyone help me on the gas tank vent tube- Rebel

I had some chain in the tank to clean it out, and some got stuck- around that vent tube. Didnt think it would matter but it rattles! My GUESS is that fume vent tube that exits under the center/bottom of the tank MUST run up very close to the filler cap- which is also shrouded inside the tank by what must be Hondas anti splash tube. SOmeone mentioned a bore scope that I dont have, any other suggestions?

use an inspection mirror with a flashlight to see what you're dealing with. then get creative with some threaded dowel.

You look much less stupid locking your handlebar lock every night no matter where you park it than looking at the empty space where your bike was last parked.

Have you tried a magnetic pick up tool with a flexible handle? https://www.amazon.com/Master-Magnet...SIN=B000H5QRV4 or https://www.ebay.com/itm/Auto-Repair...cAAOSwdUVa6sqx

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
