mystery vacuum hose 96 gl1500se

Postby WvChamp » Tue Apr 02, 2013 7:01 pm



Hello again from West by God Virginia.
I have a mystery vacuum hose that was off before I tore her down for all the (new to me) maintenance. ie: Timing belts, Plugs, Fuel, Air, Sub n Cruz filters.
I could see the hose...inside left thru the gas door.
No biggie...I knew I was tearing it all apart to do all the above maintenance.
Well I'm going back together and still have not found a home for this hose. So i'm posting a picture of sorts to see if one of the gurus might just say...Hey that goes here.

The red arrow points to said mystery hose in first pic.
Is it possible that it goes to the EVAP CAV Control Valve in this link? (Just found this pic sry)
The No.10 hose from the T to said Control Valve.

Thanks in advance,

Fairly certain the hose you are looking at 3/8" or so would be for the charcoal cannister equipped California model. If not CA model it does not go anywhere and is not used.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

Yup, this question comes up it seems every time a GL1500 owner tears their bike apart and finds a mystery, unconnected hose. It's for the charcoal canister on California emissions equipped bikes. On non-California bikes, it's left open as you have discovered.
