Question about 1982 Yamaha XJ 650
I have a minor oil leak coming from a hose that runs down and hangs just short of my back tire.
This just started this year and it is a slow drip.
It looks like it attaches on the left side of the bike(if you are sitting on the bike) below the carbs and air box.
Does anyone know what this hose is?
I'm not sure if it should be hanging but I can't tell where it should be connected to.
I just did and oil and filter change last month and since noticing it I have been checking to make sure that I still have oil. And it appears that I do.
Is it possible that this hose is some kind of overflow release that is letting oil drip out because I put too much oil in the engine?

SOUNDS LIKE THE LAY DOWN MAY HAVE STIRED UP THE DIRT IN THE FUEL BOWL AND THE FLOAT IS STUCK MAY HAVE TO REMOVE THAT CARB AND CLEAN
