2007 EX500 - Removed the tank to clean the air filter and the brass tube connecting the petcock and fuel line came off (stuck in the fuel line). Any recommendations on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

well it depends really. pull the bit out of the rubber pipe. then look at the end that went into the petcock there should be a little ring (it could be still stuck inside the petcock) if it is push it back in until it clicks. you will know how far as there will be a line around the the brass piece where it fit to before. if this works your good to go.
however if the ring is broke or missing. you can put a thin coat on the brass piece (just to the line) in petrol proof resin or JB weld and then leave to cure for at least 24hrs. note if you adopt the 2nd method only push the brass piece in as far as the line was. or it can block the reserve port in the petcock.

Thanks for your advice. There was no ring on the petcock side of the brass tube. I opted for the method 2 with JB Weld and tested the petcock before reassembly.
