Pics of right side vent hose needed - please

Ok, I have been trying for the last week to figure out exactly where the vent hose that is supposed to go into the right side air cleaner is supposed to go, and I just can't seem to figure it out. I have taken the air cleaner housing off entirely, and I just can't see where the hose would go in. And if I ever did have such a hose, it seems to be completely missing now.

If anyone would be so kind as to maybe take their right side air cleaner housing off and take a pic of the hose going into it, I would REALLY appreciate it. I have looked in the service manual at the schematic and can see on there where it SAYS it is supposed to go. But when it comes to looking at my bike, well....?

A question too : if that house were to come off completely, would/could it cause the bike to run horribly, like missing really bad on one cylinder and not stay running? I wouldn't imagine that it would, but thought I would ask.

Thanks all!!!

on the inside of each carb are two hoses that come up and join together in a t fitting, from there one hose goes to the right ear, on the rear of the ear there are 2 holes top and bottom, cut your hose in a slight angle and slip it into the hole in the ear

Thanks wib. You say yours wasn't there either - was it completely gone? I am assuming you ended up buying some hose and hooking it up, correct?

Even more importantly, how did your bike run without it?

Thanks for the info : )

Mine came off last night while riding. The bike was running fine. Today I tried to re-attach it to the hole in the ear but the hose was so short I couldn't get it in. I went to Advance auto and bought a 12" piece of 1/4 " fuel line and a 1/4" to 1/4" vacuum hose connector. I ended up adding about 3" to the vent hose. I did cut it at a 45 degree angle. Worked great.

I had a 3 inch piece of hose coming off each carb and sticking straight up (like a rain guage, LOL). like it was I would get sputtering and hesitation right at 60 mph. last year it even started doing it at lower speeds and gears. since the fix it has been great. I may have noticed a slight sputter but nothing like it was, it used to have trouble starting after rain or washing it but no more!
hose and a t fitting was about a two dollar fix!

Thanks all. I took the air cleaner housing off again and finally saw the "hole" - actually more of a slot I guess, and that's why I was confused.

I appreciate all the detailed info you guys gave about the way your bike ran. Even though the hose is missing, I am confident that what I am experiencing is related to something more serious than just that. Fortunately, I can get it started, and it will run - albeit crappy - well enough to ride it the 4 miles to the shop to get it looked at. I'll let you all know what it was once I find out.

When I got my bike I seen that hose was just sitting under the tank (po got rid of the air boxs) so I capped it off and the bike would not run with it capped off. If your hose is missing and the bike is running bad it may be blocked by something. Maybe sucked up something in one carb, just a idea, not sure if it helps any.

sounds like the PO didn't finish the "Ear Shave".. you will need to add a filter to the line coming from the T conection.
