KTM 990 Where does this vent hose go?

Doing some work to my 990 and watched this vent hose fall to the floor. I know where the lower connection goes, but did not see where the upper was connected to under the fairing. This is on the right side.

Can some one help me?

It routes behind the headlight and attaches to a barb fitting on both side fairings.

OK. That explains it. It just attaches in the same place at the left side fairing. A cross over vent basically?

That's news to me, but it would make sense... although... my bike has two separate hoses, one attaches to each barb as you can see in the middle of the first image and then routes down inside the cover of the fairing on the same side. I've never seen them joining the barbs from one tank to the other..

On really hot days after filling up, I've had these hoses overflow. There's also vents that run through the tank from the cap and out on the inside of the tank and down.

This is all on my 950, so maybe the 990 is different. I always thought I had four vent hoses; two on each side. Is mine connected wrong, should I be bridging the two barbs at the top-front of the tanks?

The right side is the right tank breather which connects over to the cannister shit on the left side. If you've removed that shit, it doesn't matter.
