I replaced the clogged fuel tap and filter on my 1984 KN700. It appears the large grey hose carrying fuel to the carbs has broken off of something down there while I was messing with it and a short piece of plastic was broken off inside the hose.
My air vent hoses are all in place though. I have been searching for weeks for where this fuel line actually brings fuel into the carbs at. Somewhere down in the center of the carbs I think but I cannot find it. The 750 has a 3-way tap down between the center carbs, but the 700 (at least my 700) has no center tap. How in the world does fuel get in the carbs ??? Do I need to remove the carbs to find this connection ?
THANKS for any information!!

I would remove the carbs. There's not a lot of room in that area, and it would be much easier to see what's going on with the carbs off the bike.

Should be the fitting in the center rear of of the carbs. I'll try to attach a section of the carb assembly with just the center 2 carbs showing the conector between them. Part 92005A should be where the line connects but may be broken off from the sound of your description.

Yes, the 3-way connector 92005 is what I was expecting to see from the service manual, but there's nothing there. I can't imagine how the entire connector could have broken off and disappeared. As much as I dread it, I think the carbs have to come off like A2rider suggests so I can eyeball this mess. Thanks so very much for your responses guys !
