What is this for?

What is this for on the bottom of the tank? It's not hooked up to anything. I just rebuilt the petcock and I'm putting everything back together I don't remember this being hooked up to anything. The bike runs great and doesn't seem to be leaking.

It's just a cover over the fuel sender unit.

The nipple may be to direct gas away from the engine if the gasket leaks, maybe they intended to have a hose on there at some point and abandoned the idea, but kept the piece.

It makes a good spot to attach the carb vent when doing the earshave. It's out of the wind.
