400Ex Carburetor vacuum hose line question

I have no idea where the vacuum hose numbered 45 plugs into?
Someone could save the day by letting me know where she goes

Thanks Tony

Welcomee to the forums.... I'm pretty sure that's a vent hose.

So it just hangs lose?? I have a nail in the hose now to block it and the bike runs but fouls the plugs and runs crappy..

It fouled plugs and ended up going into storage for two years.. I pulled it out and cleaned the carbs still fouls the plug but runs even worse then before.

You can only ride for two hours before you have to clean the plug. You can run it longer then that but when you go to restart she just wont have it.

After taking the nail out of the number 47 vent tube any ideas?

It sounds like the air bypass valve behind the black cover may be bad? Also check the choke lever and make sure it is tight and not on the first notch, check the air filter clean it or replace it.

Welcome to the forums. I agree with Moose, #45 is a vent line.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You would be best buying a rebuild kit from MOOSE utility, they aren't but about 20 bucks and well worth it. you probably still have gummed fuel somewhere in the carb.

If you haven't done a thorough cleaning on the carb I strongly suggest it.

The air cutoff valve richens the mixture slightly when you let off the throttle quickly on deceleration to prevent a lean condition which causes a backfire.

I would go ahead and clean the carb and see what that does.

Welcome to the Family! 45 is a vent tube. It plugs into a spot on the heat quard plate under the gas tank.
