On the back of the air intake black box on the battery side there is an aluminium box with a place to connect a hose. Can someone tell me what this is for and is there a hose that actually connects there?
The only hose in the area comes from the radiator overflow and I am sure that does not connect there.
The metal piece that bolts the filter to the frame on the battery side extends down the filter between the two rubber vents and has a box with a hose connection. In the last picture, if you turn the filter over it is at the bottom between the vents. I don't imagine it is used for venting the battery but I need to know if I am missing something before I reassemble everything.
Allan is right. I looked at a mid 12000VIN bike and look at the port! It is hard to see .
Thanks Allan for the question. Just another production change the factory and its suppliers did. I would imagine the port on the back would be dirty air, Maybe as Zack says "over engineered" So to finally answer your question, it is not used but we can speculate what for. Timpa136
