I have the 88 model....mine has a hose on the right side's small,about 1/4" OD....It's the bowl drain for both carbs...not a overflow hose...There is a larger hose on the left,behind the foot peg(actually 3 of them) is the drain from the collection tray around the gas cap....A leaking fuel shutoff valve would drain there too.
The overflow/vent for the carbs is a pipe just in front of the gas cap....
My small hose only has gas coming out of it if the drain screw is loose....buried behind the radiator.

I'm not certain your bike is set up the same way....
