Air box hoses

I noticed some oil coming off the top of the motor the other day so I pulled the tank and air box for a look. Apparently my box is missing two small hoses. I have a small spigot opening at the front bottom of the airbox and another at the rear bottom of the air box. I looked at a schematic and I see that a clear hose is supposed to be attached to the rear opening and then its termination point is near the sprocket near the tank vent hose. What about the other small spigot on the air box between the spark plugs? Does it connect with this hose or where does it exit?

Isn't that for your pair valve? If so, it's a short fat length of rubber tubing, with a spring clamp on one end where it grabs the pair valve. I THINK what the pair valve does is it allows small amounts of air into the engine top end so you don't have vacuum issues when the valves open and close. You want that to be filtered air.

The hose for the pair valve is there and connected. This is a small opening on the air box about two inches behind the pair valve.

Lets any oil that gets into the airbox a way to get out - should be a tube to around the front sprocket.

Thanks for the reply, I must have forgot to reconnect the hose when I pulled the airbox to check my valves and then it fell off somewhere on the road.
