Abbreviated Cannister Isolation

Does anybody know if the carbs will work right if I vent both tanks to the atmosphere and just plug the two hoses running to the motor from the cannister?

One of those two hoses seems to be a vacuum line because when I run the motor it sucks air. I have no clue what the other hose does.

I unplugged the right tank vent and rode around awhile and didn't notice any difference. But those carbureters are pretty goofy working gizmos. I was thinking maybe they need those hoses to do something and if I plugged them or left them open, something bad might happen.

Thanks in advance. -p
