With that hose off the vacuum canister, you've got an absolute vacuum leak right into the carb, which means it is going to be running so lean that it will barely start/idle. You're going to have to find that hose and reconnect it to the canister.

This shows the routing, hopefully it will help you find the dropped hose:

Thank You for your help
Both of the lines on that end of the tank are on and the vent hose is on the other. There is a fitting or what looks like a place to put a small hose on that is the one I'm talking about.
When I say it is hard to start before when I hit the starter it fired right up now it takes longer to start
Went on a 150 mile ride Sunday with no problem except after we stopped for lunch it would not start had to get a Jump. ( I think it was those darn HDs to much noise )
Went on a 200 mile ride on Monday with no problems at all
