Anyone know their way around a '09 600RR? - January 16, 2010, 04:51 PM

I dropped a screw into my battery tray and had to lift up my gas tank to find and retrieve the screw. I didn't pay close attention to the hoses under the tank and now I can't figure out how to reattach one of the 3 hoses.

If any of our techs here know what I'm talking about, it's the really short hose that attaches to the tank VERTICALLY, not the two hoses that are connected horizontally.

No matter how I try, there's no way for me to reach under the tank when it's low enough for the hose to reach.

Anyone got any ideas? I'll be flipping through my service manual to see if it's useful in the meantime.

Sounds like a vent hose, you should be able to pull the hose up so you can get some slack to get it attached. Vent hoses just keep the tank vented so you don't burn out your fuel pump.

Pics help a lot, even something off a camera phone.

Yea...thanks. I read my service manual and it's the drain hose. It's in there pretty tight, but I haven't taken off my lower fairings yet to see if I can give it the slack it needs. I tried pulling it from the tank end but that was a no go.

There is a very good chance that it's got these soft metal ties wrapping it to the frame and such, sometimes they are loose enough to pull slack through, but the bike is new, so perhaps not.

If it's drain hoses just put some steady constant pressure on it and try and pull slack, or pull your fairings and do it that way. They will be hanging down by your belly pan on the right side of the bike, along the frame. Look for those soft metal wraps.

F-in A, that was a pain in the ass. I couldn't find the ties since the tube was seriously routed through a bunch of crap I'm not comfortable messing with so I did what you said and pulled with constant pressure. Slowly but surely, I got enough slack to reattach the hose.

Thanks, B. You saved me from a sleepless night of kicking myself. All this for a fuggin screw.....
