BV 250 who can tell me how to remove emission thingy

I have seen this somewhere on the net before - but an hour spent surfing did not find the info. I took off the cover and found the two canisters and there are numerous hoses running in and out of the underseat compartment so before I start pulling it all apart I wanted a step-by-step from anyone who has done this.

Thanks

you're welcome......

Unless you mean this stuff too (for the 500, but US spec 250's are similar)

Does the fuel filler evaporation hose connect to BV250's equipped with fuel injection, rather than a carb?

To my knowledge, it is in all bikes the meet the Federal EPA and California CARB regulations. Which means MOST bikes and scooters in the US have one. Most bikes sold int he US meet the stricter CA CARB regualtions. A few bikes were/are sold as 49 state bikes but more and more states have chosen to require your bike meet the CA CARB standards. Some are introduced as 49 state bikes and then later move to the CARB standard.. like the Stella 4T and the Sym Symba.

CARB= California Air Resources Board... not carburetor.

That's what I was looking for! thanks, just pulled it all off, wow that opens it up some. Any suggestions on patching the holes so they don't leak or look really ugly. I cut rivet on some aluminum sheet and colour it was a black marker?? that would be free and easy.

Boy what a pain to get the plastic side panels out of the way to get those brackets off. I will post a video on youtube for other guys like me that want to know how. I was able to get to the power seat lock which has been malfunctioning recently, also found a hose routed wrong at the factory and was being pinched. Pays to go in and have a look from time to time.

I am really good at casting solid objects (I actually teach this as part of my job) but I have always been a real hack at laying out fabrics in resin. I built a sailboat years ago and this was the only part of the process I was not proud of. Actually this scooter has a nasty fiberglass job under the front fender. A drunk backed into my bike and since he had no insurance I was left to do my on repairs - just glued all the pieces together with crazy glue then slathered resin and glass on the inside - result? ugly, but functional, I was hoping my inside compartment would not suffer the same fate.

That said making a new internal case out of carbon fiber would be pretty stylish...
