charcoal canister.

It will be easy to put back if I decide to have the dealership fix it, but frankly, the canister seems like a failure point that doesn't really add anything.

Thank you everyone for your help. I will check in after a few tanks of gas for a final confirmation that this was a cure.

The first thing the dealer did was to bypass the canister on my bike and it made no difference. I asked the tech if there was a fuel filter and he said that he did not know. The common thing here is the low fuel levels. I have taken mine to the warning lite. The level was above it when it stalled.
