Question Charcoal Canister Removal: Unwanted fumes?

So, I am considering removing the charcoal canister to try and:
  1. Reduce the hard-starting issue when the bike is hot; and,
  2. Reduce the weight of my track bike.

That said, I keep my bike in a heated/air-conditioned out-building that is also my personal retreat. Half of it is a shop, the other half has a couch, table, beer fridge, bar and audio-visual equipment. It's a place to work on the bike and for hanging out.

I am worried that if I do remove the canister, that the entire out-building may be overcome with gasoline fumes, polluting the air and the furniture.

Has anyone experienced increased gasoline fumes after removing the charcoal canister? Please let me know; I want to make a fully-informed decision before I proceed with this mod.

If unwanted fumes is an unintended consequence, I suppose blocking off the vacuum hose that feeds back to the fueling system might fix the hard-starting issue.

Step 1. Remove Cannister

Step 2. Put a Canary in a Cage and leave next to the bike overnight.

Step 3. If Canary is dead the next morning, put the canister back on.

NB. Do not feed the contaminated deceased canary to your cat.



All jokes aside. Australian bikes do not have the charcoal canister and I have some soft chairs in my workshop. No unwanted fumes. I would not even give it a second thought.

Mine stays inside instead of the garage when I'm overseas (70%-80% of the year). No fumes so far.

Removed my canister last summer. No fumes in garage. TPO parts offers a kit that makes removal a breeze and leaves things clean and neat. Emissions removal kit is what you want.
Thanks from Styler and Sprinkles
