During an exam of my GTS, I noticed a very clean part in my dusty motor. It looks like there used to be a hose attached to it, but I cannot find the part that fell off.

In the pic, you can see where the hose was clamped on, but is now missing and has left a very clean nipple. Do any of you know what this part is called or what it's purpose is? I cannot locate it in the parts diagram.

that silver clamp was holding the vent line that rotted off, you can still piece of it under the clamp.

Thanks everyone! With your help, i was able to determine that the missing tubing did go to the Evaporator canister. I'll be replacing it today and hoping it will get my scooter running more smoothly.

This video shows how to replace the hose and what issues it may cause.

Thanks again for all of your replies and suggestions!
