Just noticed this tube on my Buddy 50.
Does anyone recognize what this is?

That's the drain hose on the bottom of your carburetor, there to let gas out if you're putting the bike up for storage.

Isn't the battery on the 50 in the same place as the others, i.e. under your feet?

Probably. Looks like someone at some point replaced it with a clear tube.



OP, you could always remove the pet carrier and see where it goes.

That tube usually falls off a short time after birth. Surprised your scoot still has it.
