Question about 2001 Yamaha SR 125
There are two plastic pipes coming off of it, not connected to anything, one was once a clear pipe and cut at an angle, other one is black.
Bike was ever so slightly lumpy and a small loss of power was noticed...checked plug, air filter, etc.,
Are these pipes supposed to be connected to anything?
This bike was bought recently, looked like it had never had an oil change or any basic maintenance. 22k on the clock
This bike is a T reg
Offhand, I would suspect the clear tube to be overflow while the black (smaller and connected at the bottom of the bowl near a bleeder screw) would be drain hose for removing stale or contaminated fuel inside the carb's bowl. As long as their is no suction on any of the tubes with the engine running, you should be OK. Should there be suction felt at the free end, then it should be connected somewhere and most likely would be to the fuel valve/petcock or must be plugged.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
