Although I only have 500 miles on the xc, it seems alot better than the wee strom for wind protection.

I can't say I was real pleased that after 500 miles they wanted to charge me $350 for its first service. Is that a normal fee? It also took them 5 weeks to get the rebate "form" to me. Not the rebate but the FORM for the rebate.

Rode the bike today, no issues. I like this bike but am losing patience.

Would someone with more knowlege than me help this guy with his stalling issue.

Right royally screwed there for that service. It's only an oil/filter change and a general check over. I would be inclined to complain to Triumph US re the dealer.

Re the stalling. Has the new tune been uploaded to your bike. If not and bearing in mind your"dealer" I would be inclined to do it myself and use TuneECU

Until he can confirm he has the latest tune, no point in really offering any advice.

Remove the canister?

While starting to install a centerstand on my Roadie last night, I removed that canister next to the kickstand in order to reach various bolts/nuts. Looking at the service manual, it appears that one of the rubber hoses is a fuel tank vent line and the other returns vapors to the engine via a purge valve. Could that canister be permanently removed if the purge valve line was capped or plugged? I'm thinking the vent hose could be left alone; possibly add a small filter to the end to keep dust out of the hose.

Your thoughts?

If you are not the vendor or you do not have any business association with the vendor you should be fine.

It was called the canisteroctomy. Does not require a medical license. Check the CA rules, though.

I removed the canister and bracket, along with the line that feeds the purge valve. I then capped the purge valve fitting, leaving the purge valve on the bike, as it is tied into the bike's electrics. Lastly, I cable tied the fuel tank vent line up to the bottom of the bike to keep it clean but still open to vent.

This was a thousand miles ago. I pulled ECU error codes just the other day; or rather, checked for them. There were none.

You may safely remove the canister without any ill effects, other than possibly pissing off Al Gore.

At least Triumph's design of the canister is not too obtrusive if you leave it on the bike. Ducati tends to hang theirs out in the breeze, almost begging for removal.
