The tube in question runs from a tee - two tubes come from in between the carbs and hook into a tee. The third hose runs to the right side air filter. That is the hose

Ok

So the end to cut is the end going into the air box correct?

Do I cut the hose right behind the tee? Or run down the length of the hose... I purchased a 92 750 with the ears already trimmed and the goat already removed ( pretty much running just first section of exhaust) and, of course, the stator already shot, seller didn't tell me, but tracked down original owner and he already installed the "stator kit" luckily, have spare battery and have enjoyed riding it around town but too lean, doesn't want to run we'll at all if I put anything at all on the air breather..

Since you have an ear shave you are going to take that hose and put it up by the tank where it is out of the wind. Zip tie it to the frame so it doesn't move around.

I had problems with the surge tank removed was causing turbulent air under the tank. Put the hose on the fuel sender nipple and everything was perfect.
