A few loose ends

First post on this forum!

I just got done putting my bike back together but have a few hoses that I'm not sure of. I am about to do a ear shave and put coasters on because i have a CA bike. I have searched and looked at the clymer manual but i cannot seem to find where these hoses go.
(Pictures below)
1. first hose is the one with the candy cane shape and it is connected on the surge tank at the other end. (Pictures 1 & 2)
2. second hose comes out the bottom of the separator, but I'm not sure where the other end goes (picture 3)
3. third one is the T in the middle of the Carbs, its the one on the right side that does not have anything connected to it. (picture 4)
4. Im not sure if anything needs to plug into this, but it is next to the radiator cap. is this the bypass hole? (picture 5)
5. last one is plug on the carbs that has a (air/fuel mixture) screw right next to it, i think i had the emissions tube hooked up to it, but since I'm taking that out should i just plug it with something? (not pictured)

Thanks for all the help!

Yes, 3rd one (picture 4) would be a hose which is routed to & placed into the right Ear, w/o an Ear Shave. (must be in dead air space).

#4 -(picture #5) is the Coolant/Radiator bleeder valve....nothing is attached there.

#5.. which carb? front (left side) or rear (right side). Front carb that line goes to the petcock. rear carb you cap that line if your shaving

1) goes away with the surge tank, drain hose for the tank

3) vent from each carb to tee, long hose off tee to sheltered position, mine is tied to the frame under the gas tank, cannot be in turbulent air
