Hi. I unscrewed my Buddy 125 seat and found that one of the black tubings is not attached to anything. I know almost nothing about the engine works so am hoping somebody can give a positive I.D. to the part in question and tell me where to reattach it. It seems to be the shortest of the tubings coming down from further in the engine. Please see attached two photos. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It's attached to something ... just not on both ends.


I believe that's an overflow vent on the carb, but not sure. But I am sure that end is not suppose to attach to anything.

"It's attached to something ... just not on both ends." That's a very good point. But more to the point, if you are sure it's not supposed to be attached to anything, this is the relief I was looking for. Thank you!

This situation would be clearer with a photo of what the other end of the hose is actually attached to. One end of a hose could be, literally, anything.

If by "literally anything", you actually mean "something in the general vicinity of the carburetor", then I concur.

Tenders, I agree the situation would clearer with photo showing where the hose i attached, but it doesn’t seem like there’s any access point, as it become buried in the morass of larger parts far from easy viewing. Would you (and Stanza?) tend to agree with Jetta that it’s not supposed to attach to anything? Is that how “carburetor overflow” would be setup?

Wow... I log in after YEARS of being away, and find one of my early posts being referenced. How odd!
