Fuel coming out of a tube/vent on bottom of 929 tank

Hey everyone. Thanks for the help in advance. So I took the tank off my 01 CBR 929 to replace the fuel lines. I've lifted it up before to clean the air filter and no issues but this time I've been having fuel come out of a little tube, maybe it's a vent or something that actually connected to the tank/ part of the tank. Does anyone know what this is and why fuel is coming out of it? I've looked for something that might of been connected to it prior to me moving the tank but no dice.

Re: Fuel coming out of a tube/vent on bottom of 929 tank

Is it an overflow deal? So since I put the tank on its side there's gas in a certain compartment and I just need to bite the bullet and put it right side up and let the excess drain out? Plz help

Just mount it back up and let the fuel run out, it should just be a small amount. Make sure you don't kink any of the hoses.

^ This.

There's probably some residual fuel left in it that's draining out of the fuel overflow line/tube (one of the black rubber hoses).

Once you're finished with your project and lower the tank back down to its original position with your new fuel lines and vacuum/drain hoses re-connected, be careful not to kink any of those hoses/lines, as mentioned...
