Help! "Genius" at work

Hey there. New to the boards. Just got my first bike ever (96 Vulcan) that was sitting for 4 years in a shed and not being used. I removed the air system and all hoses around to get to carb to clean it (only to find that when i opened it, it looked brand new). I have everything back together but have one small extra hose and cannot remember how the fuel tank hoses go back on. If anyone can help me over the net I would greatly appreciate it!!

Check the back of the tank by the mounting bolt, there should be a nipple there for a little drain hose.

Another thing to keep in mind is the breather hose to the right ear. If you're working in there the hoses can get mixed up pretty easy. The vent hose Is connected to a "t" fitting the other two hoses off the carbs go to the petcock then the small hose off the front carb on left side goes to middle connection on petcock.

Here is an idea for next time, If you have a digital camera take alot of photos when you take something apart, then you can referance them with when putting it back together.

Awesome....Thanks for the help guys. The only thing i cant figure out is the outlet underneath the tank, it is a black square that has the gauge wire coming out of it. should there be a hose running to that?

no that is a nipple to no where on the sending unit...some have connected the vent hose from between the carbs (the one that goes to the right ear)into that nipple.. it didn't work for me though.
