Hello, all. I purchased an '07 M109R a few days ago and now everyone from the dealership is on their long weekend, so I hope someone can help me out here. I have a small hose (like 1/4 inch in diameter) dangling from the radiator area. Is this just an overflow deal, or something that has come undone? I'll see if I can post a pic. Thanks in advance for any help!

Oh, I found a pic on the internet of a bike with the same exact deal goin on.  http://www.hotnews.ro/articol_47385-Suzuki-M109R.htm Click on the small picture to get the bigger one, then look at the hose coming down under radiator area. Thanks again!

Clip off the excess length with cutting snips. It looks like crap hanging from the bottom of the bike IMHO! I just trimmed mine after a friend brought it to my attention!

My only concern is with the placement.... As it is, it's aimed to drip the overflow right toward your rear tire. Not something I really want accumulating on my rear tire ya know? Then again, it's probably of no real concern.

I truly doubt you should have a concern! Suzuki, the builder of the bike, apparently thought the present tube routing/placement location was safe/appropriate :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:
