Oil sight tube

Last year I was looking into plugging the sight tube holes with bolts.
I did some searches for bolt sizes and finally found one post with the
bolt size. I wrote down the bolt size, problem is, I got to find we're I put
it. I will post when I find it.

Pro-Bolt usa also does a great job with moto specific hardware.

Thanks for info, but really Ace by far kills Lowes and Home Depot for flange and non-flange metric bolts and nuts. Hopefully you have one in your area. Same place i picked up a perfect fit o-ring in a pinch to fix my clutch slave cylinder until i bought an after marker unit.

For cold weather . . . You may want a bigger handlebar mount screen.
I use a Slipstreamer SpitFire screen:

What's that hose for?

Was wrenching a bit this weekend, and found a hose hanging down between the oil tank and the exhaust header. It looked like it had melted / baked pretty good there for a while. I pulled it out to take a picture:





Context (you see it down there):




I didn't have time (yet) to pull the tank and trace it. Any ideas what it is? Coolant overflow hose?

Thanks!

Is it because they are filled with puppies and rainbows?

On the SMR that should be the coolant fluid overflow hose if memory serves.

It's part of the EVAP Canister system. There is suppossed to be a metal cap on the line to seal it off. It runs up under the air box and meets other lines as part of the EVAP system unless you have removed that stuff.

Thanks for the info!!

Now... Canister has already been removed, so... .

(Also, gas venting next to a hot header? )

I confirmed in both the parts diag and service manual. Not close to my SMR to confirm in person but I'm sure now that on a 950SMR that is the coolant overflow tube. You are not missing a cap.

Evap is routed differently from the 950 Adv shown in the link Thumper provided.

Note the color of inside the tube, looks like burnt coolant. If you were dumping raw fuel onto your header you would notice right away.
