What are these tubes hanging down by the rear brake?

My wee took a few naps this weekend, and I can't remember if I'd seen these before.

I don't think so.

On the L4 and K7 Wee those would be coolant overflow hose and tank filler fuel-spill drain hose.

I assume on the the Gen3 nothing has changed.

I stand corrected, glad i know now, since i never received a manual when i got the bike new, i just assumed it was the same as my other bikes.
