I think It should be attached. Isn’t that the overflow for when or if you over fill the tank or pressure or whatever? I don’t Ever remember being able to see that hose just looking down the tank like that tho.

The vent for the tank and the overfill should both be steel pipes brazed into place solid on the inside of the tank. Unless the tank has been modified and somebody cut the pipes out and replaced them with rubber hose. What year is your bike?

It's a 2013.

It's a metal one and it's clearly visible and cannot be moved. I tried poking it with a stick.

Really strange.

Also, since this is a new purchase for me I have only emptied one tank and when the light came on I went to the gas station and filled it full. It could only fit 11.5 liters. It should be at least 17. Not sure what to think. We will see how much can I ride with the new fuel.

Good to check vent lines. On my CBR600RR had lifted the tank and when putting back didn't get the vent line reattached properly. At a stop sign forgot to shift it down so stalled an boom it falls over. I get up and the bike is steaming which I thought was odd. Picked it up and noticed a wet spot on the pavement - it was gas!!! When the bike went down the vent dumped gas all over the engine it was gas vapor not water vapor that was the steam! Very lucky it didn't catch fire! Since then have been very careful with vent lines - well all lines.
