Identify Hose Placement?

I need some help on a random unplugged hose. This would be for a 92 750. Under the bottom of the tank and seat, there is a evap canister ( I believe ). It has 4 or so hoses coming from it, I have all the large hoses plugged into the correct positions, one goes to the airbox, the other two big hoses go to their respective jugs, but there is a 1/4 id hose that is not plugged into anything at this time and I cannot find anything in the area where it might go. If I need to take a picture please let me know or even a better description. Thanks in advance....

The 2 big hoses go to your reed vaulves the smaller hose goes to a vaccum on your carb. Sounds to me like your PO Marbled the bike. Ask him if you can and if you cant then go with a coaster kit to be safe and answer all doubt.

Where would be the vacum port on the carb, I know that the front side carb vacum line goes to the the petcock and the rear side carb is capped off. Is there another port that I am missing.

If your PO marbled the bike, then he/she disconnected the 1/4 inch hose from the right side carb. The vacuum tube on that carb is right on the outside and easy to reach. If the hose is not attached to it, the it probably has a rubber cap on it. I would go with the coaster kit and just remove all that other crap. It's not useful for anything once it's coastered - and it looks cleaner, too.

If the rear is capped like you say then that hose is just laying in there going to no where. A guy on Ebay has a nice coaster kit for $35 + shipping, I would go with that.
