    Hey guys!
    recently picked up an 03 speed four that needs some work, first thing to tackle is getting the bike back together. currently the gas tank and air box are off and I cant quite tell which hoses are supposed to connect where thanks to the mess left by the previous owner. I am trying to post a picture with every open hose I can find and try to label that, so If anyone might be able to point me in the right direction that would be appreciated! I there are 5 hose connections on the airbox and I don't know if all need to be used. upload_2020-3-10_20-39-9.png
    in the picture I believe 6 and 7 are the fuel lines but 6 is missing the connector. 8 doesn't have a hose connected to it currently but there is one hose that fell out of this area so I'm assuming it came from there. 3 and 5 look like they have broken ends so I am not sure if they might be the same line or not.
    I also cannot find the plug that is supposed to go into the airbox, I can only see the plug for the gas tank

    Thank you! It’s definitely going to be a tough one given the condition but I needed a project to help keep me busy between classes lol

    That should definitely keep you going for a while...once you start putting it together I think most of it will become self explanatory....
    I recently changed over the wiring loom harness to a RS from a Sprint ST...
    Now that was frustrating but well worth the effort...
    You learn a lot .....:)

    Welcome Kenny. You need to get yourself a workshop manual or at least a Haynes :grinning:
    Good luck with the restoration

    Hi Kenny and welcome. You seem to have a lot of hoses there. Don’t know if this will be any help.
