What does the hose go to?

I was looking at my bike like I always do because I am a new rider and just love the way our bike looks . Anyhow, I saw this hose on the right side of the bike that just seems to be hanging around. It's not attached to anything. Maybe it's some hose for overflowing fuel or something but I'm a noob and have no idea. Normal?

Does it trace to the carbs? If so that's the carb vent hose that goes into the right ear.

It does look like the carb vent hose. See if there is a hose in your right ear in one of the slotted holes at the top or bottom of the square opening. When my bike was bogging down over 60mph it was because that hose had come out. I cut it at a 45* angle and put it in the top slotted hole of the right ear and she pulls hard now as fast as I've wanted to go.

Coming out from under the tank that far forward I suspect that goes to the ear! Back top round hole that has a groove in it.

Do I have to take apart anything to do this or take the seat off? That doesn't look like anything I see.

Is kind of on top of that larger hose running across, you can't see where it goes without a small mirrow, but can feel it! By chance is yours a CAL bike?

Now, I'm no genius, or physics professor, but... you posted about a problem a couple months ago and everyone said it sounded like a carb vent hose... now you post a picture of a hose that is disconnected and they say it looks like a carb vent hose....

I would trust there guys and plug it in where they told me and see if it fixes the issue.... Just saying...

That's not the issue. I dont know where the darn thing is based off of the description. I trust these guys. Don't know if mine is a cal bike or not. Got it from a 2nd owner who didn't know much.
