    Turn  carb upside down. Blow in the hose barbs--the one that seems closed  upside down But  opens  right  side up goes to fuel tank. 

    The one that seems open alla time is breather, either return to tank or to an activated charcoal tank, evap recovery.,

    I Always use a bit of masking tape and a Sharpie on vacc, fuel connections. Label A, B, C, etc., similarly to the hoses they came from. One  at a time, of course . Ive learned not to Trust books; some leave me stranded or had  to backpedal several pages thru a Chilton's  to see carb and a Clymer  for smog.

    I have found Clymer  to be a "chicken" it does not show wiring and is short on other information.

     Go to your public library and check with Chilton publications. It is much more complete with more information pictures and drawings.  A Suzuki book is the best but Chilton is #2 on my list to check into.  You have what? 3 hoses at most. They should be different sizes or lengths.  It is not ROCKET SCIENCE.  One for fuel inlet and one for overflow which on the older bikes just dribbled down to the road.

    anyways, if you are using the computer there is this youtube to watch...I didn't ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlYYjCFdKJ4
