I am setting up my race plastics and want to get rid of this rediculous can on the exhaust side under the seat of my 2004 svs 650. Has anyone removed this? Do I just remove and let the hoses vent into the atmosphere?
I just took my rear fender off and saw the same can. I am sure it is part of the emissions. Is yours a California bike, cause mine is? I think they are different from the other 49 state bikes. I would love to take it off as well, but not sure if it would screw up the performance.
I just removed mine, I ripped everything out and plugged everything (there are 4 plugs, the only mis match one is the fuel tank which im guessing its 3/16" and the others are 1/8", im almost certain) . will post again if I find any trouble, like one of the hoses actually needs to breath or a couple. but so far it runs great. I don't think its my imagination (could be though), it seems to rev a little faster and smoother, unstead of cutting out sometimes when i twist it too fast.
ya, that seal is just one O ring from my understanding. Ive taken mine out and noticed a lot less hissing coming from the cap. But basically, I took my evap canister off, plugged everything and vented the tank. I got 30 mpg, yay. so i re installed it.
