Hi All
Got my 06 GRiSO a couple of months back, the more I ride it, the more I love it.  It needs a bit of tidying up & I think it is crying out for a remap (I’ve sent a message to beetle regarding this).
BUT.
The more I look around it the more 'should that be like that' things I find! (think it was owned by a bit of a cowboy at some time!)
Up to now I've managed to sort them myself, but this one a bit of help/suggestions would be appreciated.
Right, what I’ve found are 5 pipes dangling just behind the gearbox.
1 black hardish plastic – looks like maybe it should be there, ends up under the seat connected to nothing.
2 black hardish plastic – can’t trace where it goes.
3 soft clear plastic - can’t trace where it goes, has a clip on the end so must have been connected to something.
4 & 5 soft clear plastic - can’t trace where they go, both blanked off with a bung.
Any ideas?

Any ideas on the silencer? My thoughts are GPR Race Deeptone. Sounds nice, loud but not TOOO loud. No db killer as far as I can see.

The ones that are plugged bother me somewhat if they are breathers!!
Over winter l'll pull bits off and try and fathom what they are and where they shold go, I just thought I would see if any one could throw some light in the meantime.

Yeah, the overall condition aint bad, its just these odd bodged bits and pieces I keep comming across.

I'm between Selby & York.

The pipes hanging down below the r/h footrests are breather/drains for the air box, battery holder and fuel tank. There is also a breather pipe for the gear box under the tank which isn't connected to anything.
The plugged pipes are to stop vented oil from the airbox dripping. This only happens if the engine is overfilled with oil, they are usually empty.

It's worth sticking a db killer in the silencer which seems to suit the engine better.
If in doubt check the bike over carefully rather than rely on poor workmanship from a previous owner.

Get the free Guzzidiag software and purchase the ecu connecting cables. Service the bike, easy enough to do at home and then load a beetle map and you will have a cracking bike.

The plugged ones will be drains, not breathers. That's why they're clear. So you can see when they need draining.

One will be from the airbox.

There's a breather on the gearbox, and the tank. There's a pipe from the airbox to the stepper. There's a pipe from the condenser box to airbox. Brain fuzz is descending due to bourbon intake, so I don't recall any others. I can't be arsed checking my GRiSO, as I don't want to kneel down or bend over. Also, if I go out to the garage, chances are I'll forget why I went out. That is all.
