    Hose near airbox cover 2008xb12scg

    Anyone know where this hose is supposed to be routed? Don't see any obvious area where its supposed to be connected. Since I have had the bike i usually just tuck it on bottom side of the airbox. Thanks fellas.

    What does the other end of the hose connect to? It could be someone left the hose attached to the spark plug when changing them out?

    I think I saw a pic of something like it on page 1-45 of the 2006 service manual.

    NOT a factory hose. it appears to be common 5/8" or 3/4" automotive "heater" hose. possible some PO installed it when performing a not-very-well-thought-out breather system modification.

    It works just like mine does. If your breath has enough Ethanol in it, your Buell will start.

    I'd bet a crispy Dong that Barrett and oh9bolt are right.

    If it leads down behind the rear cylinder to the case, it is just a vent. Since you have an open airbox anyway, I'd cut it short and stick a Toyota axle vent in the end. They are tiny, cheap, and have a little filter with 1/2psi check valve to keep it closed unless it needs to breathe.

    You mean like what shown on page 3-26 and page 3-30 of the 2004 service manual?
