    Hi everybody,

    I began to rebuild the bike after my big winter maintenance.
    This afternoon, I replaced the airbox.
    I found a hose connected to the throttle body, which I can't remember where it goes. Actually, I can't remember if it goes somewhere because I don't find any information in the service manual.
    It is made of four hoses connected together and making a new one (in red on the draw).


    Can you help me please?

    Is it open-ended? I suspect it might be the overflow.

    Ok i found the solution... I should have checked twice before posting...! It is connected under the airbox, at the right side. There is a little "dick" (sorry I couldn't find another word to describe it: D) on which it connects. It is to feed the throttle body with air at idle rpm ;)

    Hi @Odium-fr. I've just done a frame swap on my 2010. Give me a shout if you need any further help, while it's still fresh in my mind!
    I was a bit late helping you on your question from yesterday - sorry about that!
    When refitting the fuel tank, I found it definitely helps if you loosen the lower bolts/nuts on the rear subframe, remove the upper ones and allow the seat unit assembly to pivot downwards & rest on the shock unit. This gives you loads more room to connect the fuel line & route the drain tubes.

    Yeah, some don't look at dates of messaged posted.

    A guy joins in 2016, makes only one post, and then three years later another new guy welcomes him!!:D:D;)

    Il faut pardonner à Monsieur Nigel, il est vieux et sénile. Il est également possible qu'il n'ait pas pris ses médicaments aujourd'hui.

    @nigelrb: Haha! Guilty as charged, M'lud. I must admit, I just looked at @mbooth1's post date. Is the 2016 guy the one who made his first post after 3 years looking for parts, and then the sarcasm came?
