Possibly 834394, if it's a coolant hose.

Regardless, it's very easy to replace some of those nebulous little hoses with home made. Go to your auto supply store and buy a couple of feet of fuel/coolant hose in different inside diameters, maybe 1/8 inch, 3/16 inch, and 1/4 inch. Cut to length and you're done. If there's a sharp bend molded in, install a 90 degree fitting (also at your auto store) between two lengths of hose to make the bend.

Maybe $10 total, and you can replace several fuel, coolant, and vacuum lines with the extra hose length you'll have.

I vote Harold.

I think Harold the Hose has a nice ring to it.

And here is the other side. They bypass the thermostat and direct flow through the bottom of the carburetor. Buy clamps too. The ones one there will get loose when you try to reuse them and then youll have the maddening job to do all over. They are a huge pain. Id rather pull the engine than do those hoses again.

Good on you for finding the right p/n. The online fiches I could find were hit and miss as far as small parts were concerned. I ended up making my own hose.

Even with the engine out, I nicked up my fingertips and knuckles getting all the teeny, tucked-in hoses swapped.

I don't know that there's any easy answer here. But you might be able to get better access from the sides, with the side cowls removed. (Depending on which end you're having issues with)

clamp the front wheel, pull the bucket so you can see, adios the lower fairings, remove the muffler, undo the shocks, pull the plug lead and then jack the body up and the motor will rotate, you'll be able to see the lower connection clearly.

yes, yes, i know it's a pain. but much quicker and easier than fiddle fucking around blindly in a cramped space.
