Are these suppose to be connected to something?

I changed the air filter and I've noticed fuel odour while riding when the engine's warmed up.
I traced back what I did and noticed these lines unplugged under the fuel tank.

I'm not sure where they go, can someone tell me where they go?

They connect to the bottom of the fuel tank. One is the breather, the other is the overflow line.

i would say so dude.... get a repair manual off this site. look it up next time you go to open the bike up. next time you make a mistake it could end up being expensive to fix.

Mah, it wouldn't cause fuel usage to increase. That's typically a problem with the nut that connects the throttle to the saddle.

Think laterally and it will come to you... I'll give you a hint - its not a mechanical/electrical failure.
