Default What the Heck are These for?

I just noticed these as I was at the self-carwash, wiping down my bike, cleaning the the chain, etc...any idea what they go to or how vital they are lol
The bike has been running just fine...I bought it in April, and it has been in for routine service a few times. No one said or noticed anything until I did tonight...

The one in the middle is the overflow hose from the tank, one of the others is the air vent hose from the tank. The third one i'm not positive, but I believe it goes to the air box.

you can cut them a little to shorten them if they stick out too far for your liking.

I've got mine zip tied together and hanging loose, anybody rerouted them? I'm running around without the lower fairings right now because it looks better naked then with the damaged plastic.
