Carb ???

1st gen KLR carborator:
There is a hose fitting on the top of the carb on the outlet side (facing front tire).What is it and where does it hook up. The only tube I have free that I am questioning is the overfill from the top of the fuel tank at the filler cap??
Thanks for the heads up

The fitting is a vacuum fitting. There is supposed to be a hose running from that fitting to the back side of the petcock, which is vacuum operated.

If your bike runs without such a connection, then either the petcock has been converted to manual operation or a manual petcock has been installed.

If a manual petcock has been installed, the fitting should be capped off.
