The bike is a 1995 916... that wasn't well loved, so I decided to take it on as a winter project.

What is this hose supposed to connect to?

Nothing important. It is either from the secondary coolant reservoir (between the cylinders) or from the fuel tank (vent/overflow hose). I have a fluid retaining lower and removed all those unnecessary lines.

There you go...nothing important; especially if you have upgraded to a sealed battery! Better than dripping sulfuric acid on the ground any day! I even have some acid damage spots on my frame from the hose self-disconnecting from the battery and then "burping" acid !

Just my 2 cent. But I wouldn't remove either of the 2 vent hoses from the fuel tank. It is much better for them to run through the hoses to the bottom of the bike, onto the ground or into your bellypan. Than to spray on to you verticle cylinder/header pipe. Wouldn't want to do a Colin Edwards type fireball recreation. Ken

Yes, it passes up behind the battery through a hole in the battery box and connects to the vent on the back of the battery - worth connecting as some acid may occaisonally come out of this and you don't want it on your motor or clutch.
