I followed my Vstrom manual and watched the YouTube video on how to remove my gas tank from a 2005 Vstrom 650 several times. I live in California. Once I had the tank off, I noticed a second hose coming from the vent side of the tank. I can not find out what that is or where it goes. Is it another vent? Will it pour gas straight thru to my engine?

As well as the fuel line (which connects via a quick connector, there is a plain black rubber hose similar to a battery overflow hose.
This fits onto a nipple on the underside of the tank and allows any water that might collect in the recess of your fuel tank cap to drain away, preventing it from entering the fuel tank when you open the cap.

Edit. Some California bikes have a third hose for emissions. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-dl650a-2004-2011/394602-what-3-hoses-coming-my-fuel-tank.html
