its the most important hose thats why thers is a spring around it to protect it.. its for gas coming from fuel pump to the carbs. check # 8 & 31 .. its the only hose with spring around it as i remember .. its not a thin hose though as u said..

if u look at the 2nd photo i uploaded.. u will see at the top of it three hoses named air tubes.. the long one is the one i think u mean.. its supposed to be opened and go no where.. just hunging under the carbs.. but your's seems to be longer with spring around it.. i think this spring belongs to the main fuel hose.. i might be wrong though.

I think steed has it right. Your carbs need to have an open vent hose.
