    Can you tell me what's the black plastic tube that leads from engine to the skid plate. I'm guessing its fuel tank vent,,,, but can't find it in my manual

    Thanks...

    I suspect you'll find it leads to your lead acid battery.

    How old is your bike? I think it could be some sort of drain from the water pump that became a feature somewhere along the line because of small leaks. Mine melted on the exhaust so I cut the melted section out and replaced it with a piece of silicon tube. (2019 GT)

    I had exactly the same same issue on my '19 GT, Phil! Fixed it the same way, too...

    That pipe on my GT was all coiled up and strapped tightly to the oil cooler metal downpipes. The cable tie was so tight it effectively sealed the rubber pipe - no way was that going to drain anything. I bought a new pipe together with the locating plug for the sump. So it's now as the maker intended. I could have done what others did though and it would have worked equally as well. As it came from the factory, it wasn't draining anything.
