Haven't had much time to look but has anyone removed whatever emissions crap is on this thing yet?
Depending on what state you live in, your bike may not even have a canister. The California models were the first ones to require them and now more states require them. I have to agree I don't think there is any good reason to remove it since there is no power gained by doing it and it weighs about 1/2 a pound. But if you like the smell of gas in your garage on a hot day then go right ahead and remove it.
Will having that light on constantly cover up any other codes trying to be thrown?? I will leave the canister on..but for those wanting to remove it...having the light on, may cover up other codes leading to failure elsewhere...they all have the canister. there is also a solenoid valve that as soon as you remove it throws a code. I have removed the canister, bracket for the canister, solenoid, and plugged the port by the throttle body. over 600 miles with the light on but no loss in performance
