Default Mikuni Flatslide port functions... educate me please.

On my 34mm flatslide what do each of the ports do?

I know the following two:

1. Purple Arrow: Fuel Intake
2. Yellow Arrow: Drain tube

What I do not know is what the green and red arrow tubes do. Are they overflow tubes, do I need to connect them to something or just leave the tubes hanging freely or do they need to be capped off.

I am also going to be running a Mikuni fuel pump can one of these be used for the fuel overflow or should I just tee the pulse pump outlet?

Thanks!

Not sure if this has the answer to your question but it seems like it would have enough info to at least guide you in the right direction.

Just make sure to get your scrolling fingers ready

From the best I can tell, they are vent hoses though one source says they can be connected as a vacuum line. Given the placement near the top of the intake tube, it would be a safe bet to say they were vent tubes given they wouldn't put fuel there.
