Following up - R/R and etc.

So this weekend I took a lot of parts off my bike so I could install the Scootworks bypass kit (PO degoated but used crappy hose to replace the pipe) and do various other items that were left over or undone from the 30k service I never finished. My question is - if the bike is degoated, is it necessary to relocate the R/R? It has nothing but empty space beneath it so the need for relocation seems moot. But I bow to the wisdom of more experienced members here.

I was also wondering - in the instructions for coastering, it mentions that there is a small hose that goes back to the carbs, but it does not mention what to do with that hose. If I coaster the bike, my intention would be to remove the entire assembly, thus I would be left with that small hose. What to do?

Thanks in advance for the input!

On the small hose. Remove it and buy a plug from Auto store and plug the pipe that it was connected to. If your pipe that replaces the goat belly is far from the regulator there is no reason to relocate it. My reasoning anyways.
