I really don't mean to interrupt this, and what I'm gonna say won't help you at all, but a "definitive answer" on that hose would be really helpful. I've seen all over this site, some say it goes on the right ear, and some say the square plate on the underside of the gas tank. (My Clymers says the right ear.)
When I just pulled my tank and carbs, my hose was connected to that plate under the tank, and my bike ran fine like that. (as fine as it could with my jacked up carbs anyway)
On a note about your issue, last time I went thru a dead cylinder thing, is was just a spark plug that quit, but these bikes have two each, I can't imagine two would die at once.
And I would think if you're getting gas into the carb, then it would likely be getting into the engine, which brings us back to spark issues....
You said you put on new fuel hoses; any chance the one is kinked/folded somewhere maybe? I can't think of a thing that would be different if all you did was change a hose, so then it's either really bad timing, or simply an issue with that one hose.
