IMS Tank install question/help

I recieved my IMS 6.6 gal tank today for my 2007 KLR and am confused a little with the instructions. It says modifications must be made to the vent tube configurations. It goes on to say that there are 2 tubes connected to the rear of the stock tank, one black with a blue strip and one black witha red stripe and i need to use the supplied t to connect these. Here is my issue. I only have one vent tube coming off the stock tank which is solid black and it runs down the back of the frame. There is no other tube or place to hook one up to the stock tank. So my question is do i actually have to run the supplied gas cap vent tube that comes off the IMS tank to the rear of the bike and connect it to that single tube or just cut it down and let it hang in the front of the tank. I hope this doesnt sound to confusing but i'm stuck.
