Do I keep this hose?(Ear Shave)

Starting removing some things for the ear shave. When I got to the emissions junk I have one hose I'm not sure what to do with. (In the first pic attached) The hose runs down on the right side and goes down near the rear tire. The "goats belly" blocks my view of were it ends. The other picture attached is where the hose was attached to the emissions junk. On the open Part of the plastic T joint.(Black arrow) Just want to know if it is needed and if so what does it get attached to when I put it back together.
Thanks for the help.

no you don't keep that hose.. that whole little valve and all the hoses to it get thrown away... just cap off the vacuum ports on the carbs.

Cap one port on the right side carb, left side connects to the petcock.

Unless you have Calif. emiissions (tank) you have no other issues......

Ensure the Tee'ed from both carb's is maintained in (crs for correct/definative terminolgy) idle Air for negative throttle response issues....

Still kinda confused about what to do with the hose still attached to the bike. Should I cut it short and just leave it or something else?

If we're talking about the vacuum line that ran to the suction valve for the air system.... That line connects to the right carb, but you remove it from the carb and plug the vacuum port on that carb.

On an ear-shave that (emissions removal) (right carb) vacuum port need's to be plugged.
