I'm not sure which one you're talking about, perhaps this will help? This is from a 2000, not 1988, but a lot will be the same:

Thanks a lot wingadmin:)......now i just need to find out what AVCV stands for, and its location????!!!:):).....this project bike has been sitting for approx.16 yrs.:( with 40,000 org.miles.Rebuild carbs and she runs like a top:):).It's just that after a ride i have this fuel vapor smell with no apparent leaks present,and i think it's coming from this line.Not a Mech.Engineer by a long shot;)but have a hunch that it should run to a carcoal filter/canister?@ present i have a standard fuel filter attached to the end of the line for s**** and giggles,because if i pinch it of the motor shuts down.:(:( Any idea's?.....

The metal pipe attached to air cleaner housing came from the factory (49 State) unattached (open) terminating near the fuel cap, it was for future/California emissions regs that would have a charcoal canister. No fuel smell from there unless your carbs are flooding.
