Yeah - I didn't think to take a pic before I hooked the tank back up. And I had a thought - maybe the hose isn't really coming out of the tank. Something I may have mentioned before is that the vacuum equalization hose from the center of the carbs that was supposed to go to the right ear was and is missing. I have the two oses oming off the carbs but they end at the T. Nothing is hooked up after that. My thinking is that maybe the hose that should be there somehow got pulled out of the ear and then by some quirk got stuck to the bottom of the tank, causing it to pull off of the T when I pulled the tank the first time back in OCT when I first got the bike. I know, I know, it's a stretch.... I may reach under there and give her a not so gentle tug to see if it's just stuck to the tank as opposed to actually connected to it. After studying the schematics for the evap system, it looks like I can pull the canister (rectangle) and the seperator (round) and just reroute the 2 lines from the back of the tank down to the bottom of the bike. Agree?
