Breather tubes... I put a twist tie on the one that empties straight out to the bottom of the bike, but it slipped off. Appreciate if anyone can let me know which is which. One connection is for a host that goes straight out to the bottom, whereas the other has some kind of valve which I believe goes to the charcoal cannister to separate the vapors.
I have an '07 plastic tank. The tube that has the container/valver near the top goes on the outside of the nipples on the bottom. In other words, the nipple on the left side as you look at the tank seated on the bike.
