Charcoal emissions canister

So I can't tell from any of the pics I've seen. Does anyone know where the charcoal emissions canister is located? The parts manual doesnt show the location. On my streetfighter it was on the left side of the engine, low.

Charcoal canister is on the right side of the bike(if you were sitting on it) located below the ABS module if you have one equipped. Look at picture attached.

Hope that helps

the easiest way to do it is to leave the hoses in place, take off the charcoal cannister, plug the vacuum line with a bolt and run the vent line down so it drains out the bottom. I did this on my streetfighter. Otherwise it's really tough to get to the fittings on the throttle bodies to cap those. NOTE: it may also have a one way valve on it so be sure to remove as well.

I will try to explain this as best as possible.

Things you need to buy.
Hose connector, hose clamp, and 1/4 fuel line about 1.5ft in length

1. Remove right side fairings. Both top and bottom.

2. Remove the canister from bracket by releasing the rubber strap

3. Remove the top hose coming from the top of the canister that comes from the circular base nipple. Once done plug this hose with a screw or stopper. I used the same clamp to hold my screw in place within the hose.

4. Remove the other top hose from the regular L nipple. Now connect the hose you just unplugged with the connector and clamp. Connect the additional hose that was purchased to the other end of the connector and clamp.

5. Remove the canister bracket by undoing the 3 bolts. One is to the left other in the center and the third to the right.

6. Zip tie the two hose together up to so that they don't flap around.

7. Run down the now longer hose with the connector down towards the bottom of the bike. Place it away from the exhaust. I placed mine right behind the lower radiator.

8. Put your fairings together

Done

Feel free to ask any questions.

the big reason for removing the canister from my perspective is to eliminate the risk of overpressure in the gas tank, no other reason. Also, they tend to be a frequent source of problems for ducs, if you overfill the gas tank it will tend to fill the canister.

My streetfighter's first tank had so much pressure build up in it during a ride to tenn. that it split the paint and popped a bolt. All because the charcoal canister hosing had gotten kinked just enough to cause it, not worth the risk anymore for me, that's always first thing that comes off.

And the alum tank won;t be near as forgiving as a plastic one.

minimal weight savings, no performance gain.

Other than keeping in check with tail pipe emission (HC/NOx,CO) with 3 way catalytic converter, evaporated emission or HC or unburned hydro-carbon from the ventilated tank also needs to be curb.Basically gasoline is pretty volatile,i guess you could smell it easily at the gas station during fill-ups.

The charco-canister has the property to "trap" the evaporated HC and the system has a purge valve (controlled by the engine controller to rejuvenate the saturated canister) which operate periodically to allow the drop in pressure in the throttle body, to draw these "trapped" HC into the cylinder during the intake stroke, for a chance to combust so no fuel wastage....

Environmentally driven no outright performance.......
