I think that goes with the emissions. I think it is called the evaporative canister to catch the gas fumes.

Not to threadjack, but could this be a possible cause to smelling gas fumes when the gas gets churned up? Noticed it when I was wheeling tonight.

I need to make a heat shield for mine. My exhaust has melted some of the plastic. lol.


Can anyone tell me if it's bad that my exhaust heat has caused the plastic to melt?

I'd say just take it out. It adds weight and slows you down. ;-)
