    Where's this from?

    Hi I have an 09 VX Deluxe I have just charged the battery and noticed a small breather pipe come from the underside of the grab handle to the left of the ski as you look at it facing the rear.

    It seems to just connect to the shell of the ski and is about 600mm long I traced it back and it is not connected to anything but there is a small circlip on the loose end like it should be connected to something, cannot find where it should go any ideas please?

    Will post photo.

    It is the vent tube to the battery. But if you changed to a gel or agm battery there is no vent tube.

    It sounds like it is the battery vent tube ( a small dia. hose that hooks to battery case) How ever if you replaced your battery with a Totaly sealed battery this hose is no longer used. Tommy Jordan

    Aw great stuff thanks. Yes it has a new gel battery. So I should be good to remove completely then?
