Item # 9: solenoid valve to air filter case hose (see note #1)
Item # 10: solenoid valve to carburetor hose "A"
The above items can be removed and leave the # 2 hose in place,
Some earlier year models had defective rollover valves, Item #6,
which would malfunction and close off, this resulted in quite a few collapsed fuel tanks.
Some have taken the initiative to replace the rollover valve with a small inline fuel filter.
Item #2 is your fuel tank vent hose. This is just an option.
# 1 : When you remove this hose, if you are running a airbox that that has a nipple
such as the stock air box, place a cap on the nipple.......
If you are installing an air box or have a air box that has no connection then
there is no need to do anything.
Pictured is the Air Box side of carburetor.
This hose "A" is Item #10 from up above
that goes to the solenoid valve, this
hose can be removed.
Leave the nipple un-plugged this is the
vent for your float bowl.
Pictured is the back side of the carburetor,
Hose "1" is the vacuum hose to the charcoal canister, Item # 3 from above, you'll want to remove the hose completely.
