What does this hose plug into.

Sorry no pic... Easy location though.

On the left side of the 990 adv two drain hoses end at the toe peg of the shift lever. One hose is clear and plugs into the bottom of the air filter box. The smaller black drain hose, that runs down next to the clear hose, plugs into where? If ya know please let me know. Otherwise I got to take the air box off again.

Thanks fellow riders, KJ

Maybe the filler cap overflow drain? If so, it would plug into a fitting on the tank, roughly in the middle of the inside tank wall.

MortimerSickle,
I have the cross over hose at that point that goes tank to tank. The drain hose in question ends near the tank crossover hose but I don't think this is a gas tank hose. I think it might go under the air box. Wish it didn't but that is my guess. I'm afraid I will need to take the air box off.
KJ

That's exactly what it is on the 950.

Hmm, I need to be school.

I have 3 small hose plug in locations on the left tank. Problem is I have 4 hoses to plug in. I feel strongly that I must plug in the crossover hoses which leaves one extra drain hose. Can't find a place to plug this one in.

Help me here...I have 3 hoses that crossover from tank to tank. Is this correct. The hose in question is a drain hose. Where does this plug into? I don't see a 4th plug in. BTW this drain hose will reach the triangle on the air box.

Have a look.

http://www.bikersjersey.com/Product/...132&model=4931

One small plug up front: vent hose (680mm)
One small plug inside tank wall, near the center: drain. Next to the connector for the level sensor. On the bike, it sits face to face with the triangle in the airbox. (450mm)
The hose connecting both tanks sits up high, right behind the filler cap. (230mm)

Save me Brothers!

This is a 2008 990 adventure injected.I don't think this is the same as the 950 carb as posters instructions do not match with what I have. I do appreciate your advice but I'm still stumped.

If a 990 owner has their right tank off or pulled back can you tell me where this drain hose plugs into. You just might save me from the lunatic asylum.
I got one more hose than plugs.
Thanks KJ

Not counting any fuel lines, the 950, and 990 parts books show two fittings on each tank; they seem to be the same. Also, the 990 book shows an additional fitting for the crossover, which the 950 does not have.

Maybe the hose in question goes to something other than the tank?

That is the one I have been trying to describe.

I wish it were so. But I have two hoses at that point. One crosses over to the right tank and one drains as described. If I plug in the drain hose then I have the cross over line with no place to go. Lord have mercy!

In other word I am mystified. Thanks for your pics and suggestions. Seems I got myself into a fix. KJ

The crossover line at the top connect to similar nipples at he top of the tanks and the line itself is underneath the lower glove box. Maybe you just have an extended upper crossover line ??

Let's start from the beginning!

We have the left tank off. One venting hose at the front side, one crossover close to the filler cap, one drain at the center inner side, the fuel pump supply line and the petcock crossover line. All in all 5 hoses. BINGO.

OK I think I got it. I must have pulled the right tank drain hose through to the left side thinking it was a crossover hose.

But just to be sure, both tanks have drain hoses connecting to the rear plastic connectors. Right?

Thanks everyone for the help. It just took a while to soak in. Anyway the delay gave me a chance to lube the steering head bearings last night.
