Howdy folks, putting this in here, because whatever it is leads to the gas tank.
Discovered this while working on mounting a VN900 seat on the bike, and cursing at why things look so difficult when I was looking at peoples pics, and confusing pics of a VN900 seat install with a Meanstreak seat install. GRRR.
Anyhow, link to the picture of took of whatever this is: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...is%20_this.jpg
there's a break in the rubber hose, so I know that's a Bad Thing(tm). However, even though it leads to the gas tank, it's not spraying fuel all over, so that's a Good Thing(tm)
I need the expertise of the people in here. What the hell is this, and how bad is the fact that it's broken? I can easily undo the clamp, cut the broken hose part and move it up so it seals - plenty of slack in it. I'd really like to know what the hell that is.
Once I get this taken care of, and the seat mounted, I'll post some pics of the present stage of my bike's "evolution"
All assistance greatly appreciated!
