The VTX1300carb has a float chamber (aka a “bowl”), a float, a float valve, etc. - likemost carbs do. Consider that page 5.8 of the service manual section oncarb disassembly mentions the “float chamber” and “Remove float pin, float, andfloat valve. Check the float for damage.” Yep, the VTX carb has a float and a bowl.

The rubber hosein question is an air vent to the diaphragm chamber portion and it issurprising to have fuel come out of this. A badly damaged diaphragm could be a culprit for the fuel
leak.
The problem above is what brought me to the carb rebuild.
