I don't think you have to drop the tank to for a quick check of the hoses. I dropped mine to replace the rusted bolts and inspect the tank for any cracks or anything. If you remove the license plate holder and the black plastic holder for the filler hole you can get at the tubes and take a look.
Alternatively, there's a plastic plate behind the rear wheel well (covers the hollow area in the tube that has the hoses and the rear headlight wiring) you should be able to pop out the plastic rivets that hold it in place and yank it out. Then if you look straight up that area you have access to the tubes and a bit more space to work in.
