1986-87 XV1100 fuel and vacuum routing

This one really has me scratching my head. Where's the topmost vacuum line going? My guess was going to be MCV. And there's also the peculiar (to me) little half loop from the 2nd front carb boot, like it's going to carb or petcock??

If anyone knows and could say in this message post before it gets locked (or a Mod knows and could help by adding a word about it) I'm sure someone out there looking for info from this would appreciate knowing too. If so, thanks! Enjoy the these diagrams, too!

Regardless, there it is, the early model XV1100.

I think that "loop" goes to the tne inricher on the carbs. My 86 1100 has differnt carbs than my 85 700 or 84 1000.

You're probably right, thanks! Well, "enricher" to spell it right for VTF search. :bg:

I was looking at actual photos I could find and at least one shows it doing that on the front (right) carb, but I haven't seen anything on the rear (left) carb yet. Did see one photo of carbs alone showing both with a place for vacuum line to connect to enrichers, just nothing with actual hoses on them.

Interestingly, these exploded view diagrams do show both half loops of tubing for 1986-87 XV700 designated only as California models. However, same years XV1100 only show what's seen in this image I posted here for both California and non-California models. Which has the rear carb boot vacuum line going elsewhere, to where the MCV set of lines are shown.
