Default Suzuki Katana 750 (GSX750F)

I recently adjusted my valves, and as I was putting everything back together i found this hose. I run down the right side of the frame and looks like it vents out the end of the motorcycle. the other end ends under where the tank would go. It has a Circular clamp at the end too. Anyone have any idea what this connects to, I have tried looking for hours and can't find what it connects to.

It connects to the end of what it came off of. That's why it is smart to mark things when you disassemble them.

I'd suspect that it's part of the emissions plumbing. Did you pull the fuel tank back off and look carefully underneath?

Ditto, chances are it's a fuel tank vent or overflow.

If it's like a Triumph, it could be a tipover line, or the 'scupper drain' line from the bottom of the tank.

Mine do not have clamps, though.

Some batteries (like the one on the Ninja 500) have an overflow connection as well, with a small hose that runs down the side.

But chances are that it's the overflow connected to the fuel tank, as has been said.

You dip****, that's the vacuum line that hooks up to the fuel valve, it goes on one of the intake manifolds. Look for a little pipe sticking out of one of the
manifolds (usually the second one from the left). Jeezus...
