Hoses next to the kickstand spring

I was doing my chain cleaning/lubing on my 2013 V when I noticed these 2 hoses sticking out under the the exhaust, right next to the kickstand spring. One of them- the shorter one is attached to a small plastic container (not seen on photo) , which was empty. The longer one was just hanging down. I suspect they are supposed to be there since there is a plastic thingy holding them in place. I pulled them both up a bit so they are not hanging down as shown on the
pix.
Can anyone tell me what these are for? In the meantime, I will try to find them in the manual. Thanks in advance.

Small plastic container? The airbox hose should be clear with a black plug on the end, and it should come down on the other side behind tranny.

Both tubes come down from the fuel filler area. One of mine had a bad kink in it from the factory and once I straightened out the kink a fair amount of fuel and whoknowswhat drained out onto the garage floor.

The front fuel tank hose has a breather/filter on it. Rear fuel tank hose is the overfill/water drain... My 2007 has only the rear drain hose.
