Exclamation replacing fuel tank - missing one tube?

Suzuki SV 650 2007 need help!

I have bought a used tank for my motorcycle and found that there are 3 tubes at the bottom of the tank in addition to the fuel line tube.

The used tank that I bough only has the double tubes on one side and is missing the single on the other. This single pipe comes out of the interior of the tank and appears to be a fuel vapor line that goes under the seat to a canister.

Can I not connect this line and would this create any problems with fumes pressure in the tank or emmissions or performance?

Please advise as I need to get this machine back on the road.

Thank you!

Smog Control type of cannister? If so, you could probably cap the other end of that tube and discard the hose. There's probably even a kit for the thing. Ducati sends all bikes 50 state ready, but in GA we don't have to have the charcoal cannister on the bike after the owner takes it off the lot for the first time. So, Ducati created a kit for the removed of the device. Check the WERA.com site and ask the racers if I'm right. Good luck to you.

Does the Zookie use a vacuum operated fuel valve? Maybe that's it. You can plug that vapor line (if that's what it is) with no effect on performance. The motor purges the charcoal can at start up, then blocks it off. Plug both sides (the can and the hose) and you should be OK.
