Hey guys I'm working on my 06 ZX6R, I noticed I have a missing vacuum line.
If you look in the pictured I attached I circled the nipple coming off the throttle
body that I assume should have a line or plug in it, it's been open for who knows how long, ( Ive just bought her two weeks ago). Ive been looking around but can't seem to find any info on where this goes and what it's purpose is. Can you guys help? Any and all input is appreciated.

So it would be ok to just cap her off huh? thanks for the info I really appreciate it
Looking at the manual, what does that go to? Damn it Skip, I thought we covered this in your intro post. I'm going to cut you some slack because you're a fellow Houstonian, lol.

That might be for the line that goes to the SAI solenoid. And yes, it should not be open, so either replace the line, or cap it.
It is, it's the same setup in the same place as my 04, the 05/06 just have the elliptical throttle bodies.

Skip, in your picture at the top you have the two hoses with the plastic part in the top, it should connect to that. however, you're also missing the larger, maybe 1/2" hose that connects that to the airbox. Either connect it all up properly; or you can cap the vacuum line and remove the plastic piece and just slip a hose between the two ends. Or buy blockoff plates...

Youre missing a couple hoses
I removed the air box hose when I took off the air box, the only hose
that caught my eye, and the one that I notice has no connection was the
nipple circled red, what it seems to connect to is the tee between the two
breather valves. I'm gonna check the tee for a open nipple when I get off
work today. Least of my worries honestly, I have to remove the valve
cover to recover the stud to a broken valve cover bolt, somehow it got
sheared off, perhaps from being over torqued I assume.

If that is the case, it seems like a great time to snag some block-off plates and remove that entire air system. Aggracing.com sells them and the dude is over here in Tomball (justin). Let me know if you want a set and I'll see if he has them in stock.

Edit: yes, Justin has them in stock.

Isn't the hose unattached in question wrapped around the left side of #2 stick coil?

And a broken stud---perhaps that explains that oily mess
