Hi Guys,

Has anyone any idea what the overflow pipe located near the centre stand is for?

The odd thing is it has a stopper in the end of it. I was wondering if it's a petrol (gas) drain plug or something?

I'm going to try and attach a pic if I can get it to work.

Cheers all

If it is a vinyl hose it's a drain line from the air filter housing. I suppose that it's capped so that it doesn't inhale road grit, etc.

Thanks Tim - yes I think it is vinyl, and transparent. I can see fluid inside but didn't want to disturb anything without asking.....

I'm hoping this pic will attach to this post to show the hose my previous post is referring to.

Riggers............According to my trusty workshop manual it's an air cleaner chamber drain hose. You just remove the plug and drain off whatever gunge is in there and replace the plug.

I don't know about the Silverwing (I'm new to them) but on other bikes I've had there have been crankcase breathers and the like led down to that position. The idea is to drain off any fluid that gets that far.

Only a few years back, these would have just been open ended tubes, but these days they are capped so you're not dribbling oil or whatever into the environment. Part of the service routine is to remove the cap(s), drain off any fluid into a container and 'dispose of responsibly'. Replace cap(s) until next service.
