Carburetor hose!

Hey guys what's up? I'm back again with a minor problem. As I posted yesterday, I cleaned out my carbs not too long ago and now in the process of putting everything back together. Yesterday I posted about a mysterious hose which I soon found out was a drain hose. Now I have another problem.. a hose problem... Where does the hose on the left side of the carburetor connect to? I will post a picture. Thanks in advance!

Looks like the hose that connects to a "T" connector. One end goes to the back of the fuel valve the other goes up under the tank.

Sorry should have asked what year. My answer was for model years 08-12. Not sure if the earlier ones have the same set-up?

No need to apologize. That was my fault. It's a 2002

So I had a look in my manual which covers all years and it says the difference between the model years is that the 2008 on models has it going to the "T" connector I mentioned. Then the 1988 -2007 models it goes to the fuel valve. It's called the "fuel valve vacuum hose". Hope this helps?

I believe that one connects to the gas tank. Can't remember if it's that one or another one. I'll look at my bike tomorrow and let you know.

I was right. It connects to the fuel tank on the right side of the petcock.

A lot call it the petcock. The manual textbook term is the fuel valve. Both terms describe the same part.
