Newbie with blond question

Hi I was looking at my bike when I washed it before going up north and saw 3 hoses sticking out of the bottom.
my bike is quite new and has only 2500 k
I am pretty sure it came from the dealer like that.

oh oh?
I think they were probably tucked up underneath and when the center stand was put on, or when the engine guard was puton, they were let down??
I figured before I panic and spend sleepless nites worrying that the precious fluids in my 919 will leak out, I would ask here.


( any spots on the floor are not from my bike but from the old trans am that was parked there before I aquired the spot in the garage.)
Thank you for your help.

Thats all normal. They are vent hoses. You can tie them lightly to the side a little to clean things up if you want. Otherwise just leave them alone, they are fine.

They're just drain/vent hoses. On mine, they come down into a little clip on the right side of the bike but yours look a little lower. Look behind the metal piece where the foot peg is mounted on the right side. There should be a clip to hold them, and keep them from sticking down as far as they appear to be on yours.

The clip


The right side of the bike

I appreciate the quick response
yes they are in the clip behind the metal pc where the foot peg is mounted.
I guess I just have an uncircumsized bike
Thank you for the help

Au natural. I can't imagine that it would hurt to snip them a bit if you don't like the appearance, but don't sue me if something goes horribly wrong Or just do like mikey says and tie 'em

Looks pretty messed up to me, its probably related to your centerstand. You should give it to me to fix your problem....
