What connects to this?

This is from my 2001 LT that we are rehabbing. We are unable to find what connects to this vacuum line. Can you anybody tell me what color wires I would be looking for? Picture attached

Re: What connects to this?

It is a connector with green/white and green/blue. That is the tank vent valve. Often confused with the injector connectors with the green/white and yellow/green wires.

Pulse valve most likely. Used to scavenge the vapor from the charcoal canister on US-spec bikes.

Re: What connects to this?

Someone has removed your Charcoal vapor collector and repiped it to just hose to a low area. A common mod and often done when the canister becomes fuel logged due to overfilling the tank once too often.
