 Hmm. Didn't realise the 2009 had two. My '08 has only the one.

 2009 was a bit of a transition year towards the Mk2. I believe there were some other changes from the '07/'08 bikes.

I think you're right about it being a transition year towards mk2, mine was registered late in 2009 and it has the later front brake master cylinder plus I have swapped out the ECU for an American one  and the numbers on my original one were for the later model, so I had to make sure I purchased the corresponding US one. :027:

Yes the 2009 Mk1's - especially in Moondust Grey are far better than the early ones :123A:

Especially those ropey old pre-production RED ones  :179:

   :015: Oh dear, Richard ... such an ostrich :33: .

 You still can't accept that 'those ropey old pre-production RED ones' are actually the Serious Red Edition released by Kawi to only the most  discriminating and highly skilled.
 
 As for the Lead Dust Grey, the name says it all - slow and inconspicuous, a favourite for SMIDSYs  :007: .

 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.

 Rob.

Great advice  - found it just as you describe, and it's back on now ... many thanks Rob

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:

My manual's a bit different but yes, it's all there in black and white.  Thanks for clearing it up.   But y'know, fuel hose, fuel drain hose, itlall looks so similar.... :012:

 If only I was so lucky, Richard. Ran out quite some time ago  :003: . Now down to sole de riding boot with bear dripping.

 If you bring five small fishes as well you will be exalted even higher than a King  :2:.
