Coolant leaking from hose

Hello lads,
I noticed my Vulcan 750 was leaking coolant from underneath. I looked under and saw a hose ripped in half (see pictures). It looks like a pretty clean cut and not a tear. I’m thinking maybe the two remaining pieces were originally held together with a clamp. Does anyone know if that’s the case, or will I need to replace the hose? Any input is appreciated.

One hose is the vent hose for the Battery and the other hose should be the overflow on the coolant tank. Do NOT put them together.

So you're sure the coolant is leaking out of the hose? What does the coolant level on the overflow bottle show? Is it possible it was just overfilled?
