Mystery part

under the right plastic guard of my 2006 c50 there's a round shaped bracket above the back pipe. It's the same kinda bracket that holds my bottle jack in my car. My bike is a second hand project. Am I missing a part, what does this bracket hold? The only thing on the internet I can find says something about a Evap system. Any answers would be a great help. First time poster praying for some answers.
Cheers
I'd add a photo but don't know how

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

The evap system is "evaporative emissions", and it is a thing in California. Unless you live in California, you're fine. It's where that system would have been mounted, had your bike been sold in CA.

It is part of the California Compliant Emissions System. If you had one, it would be a charcoal canister which captures and filters fuel vapors, instead of releasing them to the atmosphere. Most people use the extra space as storage, or to mount a secondary fuse panel for accessories.

It's for the booster rocket fuel tank, did someone remove yours?

I thought it was for the dilithium crystals for the warp drive option. (Beam me up Scotty). LOL

Come on man, stop living in a dream world. It's a mounting bracket for the Mr. Fusion option to run the Flux Capacitor.

I'm hoping to find a mini-keg that fits there.

Don't know 'bout y'all, but that's where my compact distillery is fitted, and it taps engine vaccuum to pump 200 proof juice up into the fuel tank.
