Tank Vent Question

Hi Guys,

My new-to-me 2010 Ninja 250 has a little problem. After I shut the bike down the tank makes a squealing / venting noise from the fuel cap. The bike runs fine. I suspect a partially clogged vent tube, but I don't see a tank vent tube under the tank itself. I see the tube that drains the drain hole under the gas cap. It's on the left side near the front of the tank. I expect to see another tube that vents the tank itself, but I don't see one. Does it have a separate tube for that?

Thanks,

So it's common, I guess? Funny, at one point yesterday I thought to myself, "That sounds like a goddam cat!"
