Either way, I sold my roketa with 2500 miles for $1000. You did good.
I think I found out that the thing I was looking at is the PAIR system which is emissions related. Chinesescooterreference.com has a great write up on it here
. They say:
Next is a diagram of the PAIR emissions system. It stands for Pulsed Air Injection Reburn. It sends pulses of fresh air into the exhaust during low pressure pulses in the exhaust side. This is a canister that has a vacuum line and a hose to the valve cover area. It is usually only on newer scooters. This helps burn uncombusted gases that make it through the engine. Earlwb, a font of knowledge, sent this to me. Thanks again Earl:
I went and got quite a bit in the way of supplies at the auto parts store today including a new hose for this system. I'd just rather replace the hose than try to yank the system right now
I'll try to get another update posted tonight - there's more good news
