The little check valve is "supposed to be" a pressure sensitive valve, opening at 2psi.  Honda has made replacements but the little spring that is supposed to relieve at 2psi was left out.  So now instead of a check valve, it is basically a backflow preventer.  

Well this is a problem because the fuel bowl and pressure cannot be maintained correctly resulting in cutting out at high RPMs.

I have found replacements that will last forever.  They are made from stainless and has a cracking pressure of 2psi.  Way better than the $15 stock replacement that doesn't work.

Email me if interested.

Hey Weed,

Besides the airflow restriction on my airfilter box, could a faulty check valve be another reason for my oddy to bog at full throttle? At 3/4 throttle it runs crisp but at full throttle it bogs a little. I just recently replaced my check valve with a new honda oem check valve.
