Where do these hoses go?

Hey guys. I tackled a small weekend project, and undid some of the hoses off the the fuel tank without seeing where they went when I lifted the tank.

I'm holding the hoses in the picture, it's not the main hose with the banjo bolt, it's I believe the "air vent hose" but that's all the info I can find on Clymer's Manual. Where does these go?

haha..i just dealt with this today... One is the vent hose the other is probably the overfill drain hose.... they are attached to the bottom of the tank. There is a nipple on the bottom of the tank that one gets connected too and the other get connected to another tube under the tank....just look closely...it'll become obvious. attach the hoses then route the hoses to the loop thingy next to the shifter. If you routed them wrong they wont reach. look at a picture of the left side of a bike that is similar to yours....look closely towards the shifter.

BTW the I couldnt view the pic that you "posted". Maybe its my computer of you just didn't post it but I figured that the two hoses your talking about were the same two that disconnected on me today when I was doing the DIY velocity stack mod.

Ditto, those are the tank vent and overflow hoses. They connect to the fittings on the underside of the tank and end up hooked into some looped wire bracket under the bike. The coolant tank overflow hose also ends there (at least on my 03).
The bike will run without the hoses, but for a street bike it's safer to put them back on. Note that when installed, you cannot lift the tank completely without putting strain on the hoses, possibly damaging them.

Yeah, he's right about the hoses. You can always download the PDF for your bike too if you unsure too.
