Default Need help identifying hoses that attach to carb

Hey everyone!

It seems the horrible mechanic that I took my bike to before stole a bunch of various things from it. Ive been learning to do my own maintenance, and upon removing the air box, I realized that I was missing 2 hoses attached to the carbs. I've read somewhere that they are drain lines, but whatever they're supposed to connect to is missing, too. It would be a great help if you guys could point me in the right direction, as the parts diagrams I've been looking at are more confusing than anything else. Specifically I need to know what they're called, as well as what they attach to. Pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Upon further inspection, they are not the drain tubes. The missing hoses are supposed to be on either side of the main tube in the center of the 4 carbs. Between carbs 1 and 2, as well as between 3 and 4, is a node that swivels up and down. When I funneled fuel into the bike and started it to identify leaks, it was from these 2 nodes that the gas was pulsating and leaking from. I think maybe they are air vent hoses that potentially attach to the air solenoid valve? I'm not sure what the valve attaches or what parts I need to complete the system.

If the node you're referencing is brown and plastic, those are fuel lines. If the node is metal and Y shaped, those are for coolant.
I happen to have my bike apart riggt now and will take pics of the air hose routing later today.

This picture of carbs has what I am missing. You can see between 1 and two, and between 3 and 4 there are hoses attached, and they come together at some assembly point. These are the pieces that I need, and an understanding of where the entire assembly connects to when put back on. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.

This picture shows the missing pieces. Attached between carbs 1 and 2, and between 3 and 4. The piece they meet at I am also missing.

Question. What year is your bike? You posted in the F3 section. Those carbs are from an earlier generation.

Here you go. You can see from my pics, the white T fittings between 1&2 and 3&4 are connected to your air lines. The brown ones on the bottom are for fuel. The metal Y ones on the very bottom are for coolant routing. I didn't take a pic of those.
I've disconnected some of the hoses so you get a better view. But you should be able to see how they connect now.
