    650sx hood breather tubes, are they needed? Help!

    Hey there guys, just recently bought an 88 650 Sx. I noticed that the back breather tube on the hood when I clamp it down is bending because it's hitting the fuel line on off device. My question is does this have a certain purpose? Or am I able to trim these pieces or go without them?

    Just to verify I'm talking about the rubber tube from hood.


    Please any advice is helpful! Thanks in advance

    You can adjust them so the don't hit the fuel line. I had to adjust mine.
    I would not remove it as then any water that gets in would fall too close to the carb.
    One of the tubes is straight, the other has a bend in it, maybe your are just on backwards.

    I have a 650SX that I covered the one that goes over the breather, took the hose/tube of completly and covered it. I kept the other one and yes you do need at least one so it will breath.
