    Got another question, on the left side (when sitting on the bike) up front by the engine there is a canister that I believes says gas tank canister! Do I need this? If not how do I remove? If you go to the link at the bottom there is a picture of the item in question!

    It's the smog canister found on California-legal bikes. Leave it on as it provides venting to the gas tank and doesn't hinder performance at all. But can be an eye sore.

    Take the hose from under the tank and route it to the side of the carb.

    Many people buy cans to cover it. Any drink you can think of. Sodas, beers, energy drinks, whatever is your favorite they probably have. Or you can just take it off, but if I had it I would use a dr. pepper or redbull can.

    For those of you who aren't simply suffering from lack of dietary fiber or just wanna "stick it to the man" there is no FUNCTIONAL reason to ditch the can. It weighs exactly one pound, causes no service problems, nor does it affect performance. It's just another way to vent the tank. Period. It also keeps gas fumes from filling your garage and if you lay a Cali bike down it won't leak gas, nor will the tank swamp in a water crossing getoff.



    If you don't like its looks you can remove it while retaining the Cali tank and cap by reconnecting the line as I described above.

    I agree with LizardBreath. Why shit in your own sandbox? Even if you don't care about the air quality in your state, or city, you might think about what your kid's father or mother are breathing. Have a good ride. Tom
