I think this is correct So that would be the air filter blow by hose. The other nipple is for the valve cover vent. Theoretically the valve cover vents into the airbox bringing mostly vapors that are supposed to get re-burned when it goes back through the air filter into the engine. Any liquid condensing or also being brought into the air box should get routed down the blow by hose. You are supposed to drain that every so often as it fills up. Some people do away with that system and have no problems at all.
I've never opened up that little box like thing, but would assume it is just an area with baffles in it to help separate liquid from gas. You could test that with a vacuum device or just leave the valve cover vent hose unattached and see if that fixes your problem. Honestly i don't see how it could contribute at all.
We've had the wettest winter/spring(?) on record here!! Calling for sunshine the next 3DAYS Yep, I rode in today. Will also tomorrow. Need to fill the tank and see what kinda mileage i'm getting.
*edit...second day scootin. Filled the tank at a gas station for the first time so I can figure out the mpg. At 585miles and 1.316 gallons to fill.
**1.215 gallons at 658miles
right around 60.08 mpg at an average of 41 mph. Now i gotta figure out how many miles to pay for itself so...word problem if the truck gets 13mpg and gas is at an average of $2.20/gallon. How many miles to pay for itself if i am trying to pay off $360?
Need to put around 2750 miles on the scooter for it to have paid for itself. Not as good as I thought. Specially since i still need to buy some tires for it. I'm up for the challenge though!!!
More updates for me ***1.444 gallons at 755 so i can go 100miles on a full tank. Now at 67.17mpg!! yay! This is probably closer than the other as I had to put a little gas in it just to get to the gas station.
Yea! I finally got to ride in today. 35deg. Can't feel my fingers..lol A little bit nervous since I have to run an errand after work to the next town over. Really steep hill I have to go up also on the way home. Hill I go up now is pretty steep and I hit a max of 34mph going up it. Don't feel bad because most people go slow up it anyway. This new hill is a little steeper and longer
On the plus side it should warm up to about 50 for the ride home
That looks really good and now i'm jealous!!! I get a blob every now and then. Most of the time i get a big hunk that floats at the top. I don't leave mine on for more than 2-4 hours though, usually just when i'm watching a movie or two.
