Little hose by the kickstand

Can anyone tell me what that little hose is hanging down by the kickstand? I thought something had popped loose at first, but then looked at a new Versys at the shop and it had the same thing. Does that just always dangle there below my left foot or can I secure it somehow?

Thanks.

If it's the one I'm thinkin of, then it should be the vent from your gas tank ring to funnel fuel spillage from around your ring out the bottom of the bike. I may have used this one before.

I got a laugh when I saw "Technical Discussion" thread topic "Little hose by the kickstand" Take no offense, just gave me a tickle.

Thanks. Mine is sticking out to the left under my foot. I think maybe it should be secured under the bike better.

No worries. This is my first bike, so I'll definitely be using n00b lingo for awhile.

Just make sure it points down and doesnt' spew on your exhaust at all.

I would have described it the same way if I were talking to the dealer... I don't think it has a proper name, just the arrangement of words...

The V was my first bike too... It's a great rig. Congratulations. Welcome to the forum.
