Hi Folks,

New guy here just bought a 2007 LX150, dark blue metallic, tan seat! Doing some basic maint. and found some lines running from the carb and gas tank that I think should be connected. Can anyone confirm?


Thank you.

A previous owner has very sensibly remove the Evap Crap system - it can be left as-is just fine.

If there's a line that's been disconnected it's probably from the emissions (evap) system that causes so many problems on U.S. Vespas. Leave it disconnected unless you want problems if you happen to overfill the tank. There's a ton of info on here about it. Just search for evap disconnect and you'll see what I mean.

Thanks guys, that's what I was kinda thinking too. I'm a bit leery about that clear line running to the carb, but I assume I won't be sucking air and dust in through it being open like that?

I plugged mine with a little piece of foam so it can still breathe but it won't suck in dust.
