What is that? Doesn't look like a rectifier, which would be in that area. Lotsa people in PDX with Hobbits. Haven't met up with any one? No Wednesday night moped rides? How fast is the Hobbit? That wiring appears to be a mess.

I (we) can't understand you without punctuation.

That looks like one of the old ceramic resistors from a CEV tail light.

Re: Honda hobbit 1980

Did someone replace the fuse with a resistor? That's gonna burn the whole fucking bike to the ground

Here's a service manual , with wiring diagrams :

Get a decent meter and start tracing . Mark each wire as you go with tape and writing .

Wiring aside, you must have an air leak. Most common spot is lower side of reed block. Spray some carb cleaner around to note a change in rpm, indicating the leak
