Hey all, I had a hose break on my Ninja 250R and I'm trying to find out what it is called so I can get another one (hopefully without incuring the wrath of Colemans). It seems to start at the top of the gas tank and goes way down to the bottom of the bike then up toward the throttle body, which (I think) is where it connects.

The bike seems to run ok, maybe a bit rough, but if I gun the throttle, like rev it from idle, it stalls out. However, if i roll on the throttle slowly, it can get up to higher rpms. The broken end of the hose seems to be periodically (when i rev it) lightly spraying out some liquid. It does really smell like gasoline. I don't know if there's a fuel return or some kind of vaccum line.

I've attached some mediocre pics. Any help would be appreciated.

That looks like an overflow drain hose. Shouldnt be related to the bikes running

buy a bulk piece of hose from Autozone. 1/4inch fuel approved hose. Not related to your running condition.

If you drink and ride, I have no pity for you. At all, ever.

go to www.bikebandit.com, go to oem parts, find the microfiche of that section of bike, then you'll be able to atleast see what it is supposed to be connected to
