Could this cause phantom out of gas syndrome?

My bike runs fine, and then wants to stall out of nowhere after riding for an hour or so. It sometimes will start back up, but only to shut off shortly after if it starts up at all.

I read somwhere about a phantom out of gas syndrom. And I noticed last night when pulling it apart that there is a plastic part that sits behind the radiator overflow that has some hoses running into it (sorry I did not take any pictures) I have ran through the manual and cannot for the life of me figure out what it is. Howevever the bottom of the part is cleanly broken off. and if I put my hand on it and cover it it feels like it is suppose to be sucking in from the bottom that has a single hose running out of it. It is all there just cleanly broken off.

Question is could this be a reason to cause some sort of phantom out of gas syndrome?

I can take pictures later today if needed.

Thanks as always everyone!

Looks emissions related. Check out the coastering and marbling posts to remove that stuff.

Thanks will do. I am planning on getting the coaster mod done sooner than later.

could that cause the problem with the stalling though? Just trying to pin point the problem before i keep doing more work.

If it is a vacuum leak like I believe it is, it would definitely cause running issues.

Looks like that fell off the charcoal canister?

Correct. the cylinder with the 2 tubes coming into the top is what it broke off of.

If you have an air compressor, put one of those little blower attachments on it with the squeeze trigger, find that little hole under the gas cap and blow into that.
