Just wondering if anyone can advise…

When I got my ’96 VX800 the vacuum operated fuel pump was not attached, and there was nothing attached to the fuel tap either.
Anyway, I managed to get the bike running using a separate fuel supply, with the vacuum hose for the fuel pump coming from the rear carb.
But, the fuel tap also needs a vacuum hose…
I can’t see anything on the front carb to provide a vacuum for the fuel tap – am I missing something ?
Or do I just need to split the vacuum hose from the rear carb to supply the fuel pump and the petrol tap ?
I have rigged up a ‘T’ connector to do this and it seems to work in the garage, but I don’t know if it will work on the road when the engine is under load…
Anyone able to have a look at their set up and let me know...
Thanks in advance

I am unsure if there is any difference on the fueling systems for a 1990 US Model vs a 1996 European model but here is goes. Truly ashame the VX800 Forum site is permanently down, tons of information and years of knowledge all gone. Maybe someday the former moderators will bring it back. I hope this information is somewhat helpful.

Thanks Billybop 90, I've got the manual with these diagrams but I think my bike must have a different set up.
There's no obvious vacuum line from the front carb like in the diagram...
I'm going to just give it a try with the vacuum from my rear carb split to both the fuel pump and the fuel tap...
Will update with results, not sure when that will be though !

Ah, OK. I was trying to get a picture of the set up but the bike is stored for the winter, about 15cm of snow on the ground and of course its between 2 other M/Cs which makes it harder to get to. Defintely keep us posted on your machine. Would like to see some pics of your bike as well.

1990 VX800, had since 1999.
