    sl 900 fuel hose to tank connections

    Well I finally got my sl 900 to spark and run on premix poured into the carbs.
    This was a basket case when I got it so now I need help figuring out what hose connects where on the tank. also there is a small clear plastic hose coming form what looks like a vent port on the cowl. where does it go?
    On the front of the exhaust is a hose connection with nothing on it. What does it do?
    Thanks

    I suggest you take some time to read up on your machine. My signature posts plus all the techical material around here covers a lot of ground.

    The fuel pump on the red domestic engines with Keihin carburetors is part of the carburetor. On three cylinder engines there are two fuel pumps, one on the MAG carb and one on the PTO carb. The center carb gets supplied from the other two.

    I have learned a lot from your posts. (thats how I got it running ) I looked down the list of topics but didnt see fuel lines. They are connected everywhere except the tank and what ever goes on the exhaust. The small clear tube down in the tank area is attached to a vent on the cowl area but I have no clue where the other end goes,

    That clear tube is the battery vent.

    IF you can see thte top of the sender they are marked. Its really small lettering but its there. You can always pull out the sender and visually verify what goes where. Otherwise there are 3 connections. One is the vent and one is the return. The third one goes all the way down into the tank. you could blow in one tube at a time until you hear bubbles and you would know that one is the pickup.
