Unidentified hose...
« on: Feb 09, 2020, 01:37 PM »
Hey all,

I've attached a photo of my 2008 650 ABS with the tank off.  There's a loose hose, I'm pretty sure I didn't pull it off anything, but being fairly incompetent I can't be sure.  You'll notice I've drawn arrows pointing to the end of it.   Can anyone identify what it is and if it should be attached to anything?
Many thanks!

ps I was changing the air filter by the way

Been a while since I've had the tank off but it looks like a vent line goes onto the bottom of the tank. Didn't you remove it to take the tank off?

 Overflow hose from the filler neck.

 Easy to take the tank off without knowing it's there. Put a block of wood under the tank mounting bolt flange  but not the fuel pump and feel for the spigot that the hose pushes on to.

Well I didn't knowingly remove it unless it popped off during the process... :whistle:

Thanks Rob.  I'm confused as I followed the service manual and looking at it again now I can't find any reference to the overflow hose, nor could I find anywhere on the tank to attach it to.  I just presumed it must be a breather hose from somewhere else and I've put the bike back together now.  I don't suppose I should ride it until I've stuck it somewhere.  You think it's at the back of the tank near the pump?
Thanks

Picture from the service manual shows a see through of the tank, so yes underneath on the left side (looking forward from the seat)



Actually the service manual does mention the hoses



Although it doesn't mention putting them back on  :008:

 If you run your hand around the bottom rim of the tank, left side, you'll find the pipe stub.
 Open the fuel cap and you'll see the overflow hole. About 10 o'clock iirc. Stick a piece of wire through it or blow some air through it to find it's exit. Also makes sure it's not blocked.

 On Maverick's diagram and in his manual two hoses are shown. On the Mk1 there is only one.
