OP says "5/16-3/8 id", hence it's too big to come from the battery

Yes, as you'll be drawing Dirty/Unfiltered Air into the airbox... where it will enter Downstream of the air filter, meaning it will go directly into the carbs




Do you have (2)Two Tubes as shown?... my bet is that one of these matches what you found








^ (Ignore the Yellow Arrow) Here you can see 1 of the 2 Drain Tubes, where it connects to the lower air box (not shown)... the throttle cable is almost pointing at it.




^ The 2nd of the Drain Tubes goes to the "Storage Tank" (aka Collector Box)... which sits under the funny shaped ~5/8"ID Hose shown in previous pic






^ And here you see both Drain Tubes in their natural habitat ("Down" on the bike would be to the left)

My post didn't say his tube was from the battery, just a thought as to how many tubes should be coming out the bottom of the frame and where they might originate.

Why ain't we ridin'?
