    Hey all,

    Can somebody tell me where hose no 4 on page 138 of the manual (http://www.ktm950.info/library/assets/pdfs/2010_ktm990_owner_manual.pdf) is supposed to go? (It is also hose no 3 on page 139).

    When I took the gas tank off, I didn't see this hose and when I pulled the tank off, it remained attached to the gas tank/the other end got disconnected from wherever it was. I don't know where the other end is supposed to go/don't see any place for it to connect to. Is it just an overflow hose that goes to the bottom of the bike? Or is is something else?

    What Johan said.
    It's the overflow drain, it goes down along the airbox drain hose (there should be a clip attaching the two) and both end beside the clutch slave.
