what is this?

Hi guys,

I'm a fairly new rider and I own a 2014 Vstar 950. I just got my bike out of winter storage and after watching some videos I figured I'd do my own oil and filter change. When scoping out my upcoming work I noticed the hanging tube as you can see in the picture. Ignore the spillage on the ground - that didn't come from my bike. Is that just the vent tube?

where do you live?

california bikes have extra gas containment plumbing

I dont have a 950, but most bikes have some sort of gas tank vent

carbed bikes have float overflow tubes, but yours is fuel injected
