Gas tank hoses question 2011 zx10r

I changed my gast tank to green from black. Mine is 2011 the black one has 2 total exits (small metal nips with a small hose goes down) the green one is from 13 i think it has 3, two red n blue on the right and small one in the middle. The blue and red i closed 1 and hosed one down but now i smell gas and see small drops coming out of it, these into go evap canister or what theyre for anyway? Thanks

it goes to the charcoal canister mounted in the right side fairing, opposite side of the bike as your regulator/rectifier is located. It should be in the service manual somewhere (prob under fuel/emissions portion) along with which hose routes to which piece.

I have the same deal on my gas tank and had the canister as well, but I have removed mine. I plugged the 2 (1 red and 1 blue) holes with rubber caps and zip tied them to secure them. I have used it like that for the past 3 or 4 years without issue, caps still on as well (checked like 3 days ago when I removed the tank). Hope that helps some.

Yeah, cap off the red and blue ports on the tank like described above.. or just run a hose from the blue side and loop it around to the red.
