Default Can't figure out what's supposed to go here

Just bought a non-running 599 and after inspecting the carbs it seems like the issue was two clogged main jets (I was told bike would start and idle but would die when revved) I cleaned the carbs and when trying to install them came across this port that currently has no hose attached to it. The diagram below shows a hose but can't figure out with the service manual what's supposed to go there. If anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated.

Check to see if the port in question is the one I labeled #4 in this thread:
If so, that's a port that should be capped, and is used only to measure pressure for cylinder #4 when balancing the carbs.
