Default Loose hose, help, pics

after riding for about an hour I get back and do a visual inspection of the bike just to make sure everything looks okay, I noticed a hose sticking out a little farther than usual, I pulled it right out with barely any force.

Out of the 3 drain hoses I have, the loose one is the thickest and says "11" down the side of it.

Any ideas??






little side note, the cct is it something that can wear out due to high mileage or just over time? I have a 2001 f4i but it has only 4000 miles

It's either attached to your gas tank or cooler tank. See which one is missing a hose and put it back!

where is the cooler tank located? also would I have to take the gas tank off to see if its missing a hose? Of can I check both the cooler and gas tank by just taking the right fairing off?

I don't know man, I've only got 2 hoses coming down there on my bike. Maybe one of mine is gone?

Coolant tank (sorry, typo earlier) is under your seat to the right, right above your rear brake reservoir.

The three hoses are: coolant overflow, fuel overflow, fuel breather. Nothing will leak unless something is overflowing, but you should reattach it to whichever is missing. There are diagrams on the OEM parts fiches online, so look around for one and figure out which one came off.

chambers, yes you are missing a hose. Or it's routed somewhere else. Supposed to have three on the left side.

Thanks, I went out and looked at mine, found the thicker hose, it doesn't come down nearly as far as the other 2 hoses but it's there.

chambers would you mind looking at it again and trying to find where it leads too? I should have done that before I pulled the whole thing out like an idiot to atleast see if its directed towards the cooler tank or the gas tank

One goes to the coolant overflow tank like Aken said, as for the others my bike may be different from yours since I have the EVAP canister on mine and I don't think all the f4i's have it.
