Not A Smog Device

That is the oil separator. The engine oil during it's operation will form a mist and through the vent on the case above the transmission is routed to that canister where it will solidify and flow back to the engine. DO NOT remove it.
If you do remove it don't throw it away. Send it to me.

OK, Let's put it this way. There is nothing on the bike smog related or otherwise that will detract performance wise. If i had that bike I would bump the pilot and primary carb jet's up 1 size from whatever is in there now assuming that no one has fussed with the jetting.

One of the hoses goes into the oil reservoir in the frame and the other goes to something that kind of looks like some sort of little pump. There is one more line connected to it on the other side that leads the the main carb.
Sorry if im giving a confusing description, I have zero knowlege of what the part is called or what purpose it serves.

Just pretend that it's not there and go ride the bike. See above post.
