    Need Help!

    I just opened up the engine compartment on my GP1200R for the first time since i winterized it, and i saw a hose that was about 1/4'' of an inch in diamiter, with a tiny pinch hose clamp on the end. this hose was disconnected just laying on the bottom. its located on the RH side if looking at ski from front. I back tracked, and it goes into the little hole that the battery cables go through in the rear by the battery. Does anybody know where this hose goes to? Is it a pressure hose?

    That should be the battery vent hose.

    It's a ventilation hose for the battery. On a standard acid battery there is a nipple on the side the hose attaches to. I use dry cell batteries, so my hose is just tie wrapped off to side.

    Item #8 in the second pic hooks to the battery and then to the vent #12 in the first pic just behind the seat.
