    Hose questions 07 XB9R

    I installed the missing exhaust bushing I described in a different post (https://www.buellxb.com/forum/showth...-bolt-question). Yes I loosened all exhaust fasteners and tightened everything up together. Thanks all for your help!

    I decided to examine the air filter and area under the seat. What's the deal with the two hoses in the filter area? That original?

    Also, what is that hose (open on the end) that is zip tied to the shock?

    I'm liking this bike. I think my others are getting jealous...

    The hoses in the airbox are breathers that go to each valve cover, and the single open hose is the breather from the crankcase. All factory and where they are supposed to be

    Thanks guys. It looked a little curious to me. Another question, is the seat supposed to be held down by something more than the two bolts at the rear?

    On the far right of the pic you can see where the "hook" of the seat attaches.

    This guy is just mad because he cant just pour oil in through the valve cover.

    Well now, your frame picture makes it clear. The problem is, the little piece is missing on mine. That's a puzzle. I guess I could fabricate a replacement and weld it on.
