Help Needed - Ripped Hose, liquid on ground

Post by doliner »



Hello All,
Just returned from a ride without issue. Went back to retrieve something from the bike and noticed fluid puddled around the kickstand area. Took a closer look and saw a split hose underneath the bike (center / left) by the kickstand/center stand. Hoping someone can tell me which hose I'm looking at. As a side note, just had all fluids replaced, timing belt replaced, oil+filter, new tires, etc.

that is just a drain hose, should be 2 more there with it. not sure about that fluid, did you just gas up before you parked. there is supposed to be a little plug on the end of that hose and you drain it every oil change

There is a drain hose from the tray around the gas cap, another from the battery vent and finally one from the air box. The last one can accumulate some sludge and is the one that requires a plug (the others should be open); otherwise the intake system will draw a vacuum on that hose and suck dirt behind the air filter - and the hose is in an area of high dirt and dust!
