Newbie with some questions

I bought my 06 a little over a month ago. It runs great and only has 4400 miles. I am the 3rd owner. I noticed yesterday that I don't have a vent tube running from the gas tank. The nipple is there on he tank with nothing hooked up. It's not anywhere I can find. It runs great but I'm wondering why it would have been removed and more importantly should I run a new hose?

Also noticed that coming off he battery there is a vent tube that runs down the right side of the bike with a filter on the end of it. Is this stock? Thanks guys I have been reading this site religiously for a a couple months and didn't see this mentioned.

On the battery tube that is not a filter but a catch tank for battery fluid. It is stock.

There should be a tube attached to the nipple at the bottom of the tank under the seat.

There is some info here about gas tank tubing:
