    Haha wow. All this time.......

    Really the hose on there isn't even long enough to put anything in there. New top caps are freaking expensive. I will put a vacuum cap on it.

    Still waiting on the secondary bumpers to get here.

    Thanks for all the help guys. Of course it was the simplest fix.

    Beats me. Only thing nearby there when is the vent line that goes from the oil tank to that little deal under the motor mount. It has always been loose there until a couple days ago when I connected it to the air box.

    Something must have stuffed in there and during your disassembly/reassembly it fell out. I hate when stuff like that happens. Let us know how it's running after you get that cap.

    I see them on some early 2000's and have never understood why they are there. They are always capped off and I've never seen a hose attached that terminates somewhere. Sometimes the underside of the seat will rub on the rubber cap and put a hole in it so check for clearance once it's all back together.

    She runs great now. Just trying to get the pilot screw adjusted correctly. I love how the manual says get engine warm (10 minutes of running before tuning) it is almost the only way to adjust the pilot screw is with a flat head bit from a drill because of the distance between the carb and the cylinder. On top of that every thing is freaking hot!

    Thanks for all the help and ideas guys.
