    What does removing the evap cannister under the passenger seat do for you....I know it creates space for a tool kit but is there any performance advantage?

    Can you just plug the vacumm tube and re-route the fuel vent and be done?

    nope......on the older LC8's the canister could become saturated after a tip over and make re-starting the bike more difficult....

    Awesome! An even more compelling reason is with our cap you can use a Twin-Air pre-filter sock in your fuel filler. For Adventure riding it's a must.

    Any chance you documented the SAS removal?

    No, I didn't. Nothing new to it... just like the 990.

    Just to clarify, you removed the evap canister and not the SAS right? Or did you do that too?

    I've done both and I'm developing a "race" kit that will allow others to easily do the same without trigger any error codes.

    Ken- what's your thought on removing the SAS? I stripped that stuff off of my 950s but on the 990 I only removed the cannister and left the SAS alone. My understanding, (probably wrong) was that the SAS was not a true weakness like the cannister, but removing it cleaned up all those darned hoses, etc. In otherwords, removing the SAS doesn't really do anything but clean out the clutter.

    Thanks for any insight.

    It also will stop the exhaust from popping on deceleration.

    Did you remove the catalytic converter too? If you don't have the SAS system on it could clog the converter.

    For the most part, that's pretty much the case. The Supplementary Air Supply is intended to allow cold air into the exhaust system during over rich conditions to help burn off excess fuel. It's a smog thing but causes no harm.

    On the other hand, the 1190's motor is really cluttered and could use some cleaning up... um, for race purposes only of course...

    It's not likely to clog the Cat, but the unspent fuel would serve to cool the cat off which works against it's intended purpose.

    I have an Arrow header on it's way to me... without the cat...

    The problem happens when unburned fuel contacts the catalyst and then ignites. This will cause the monolith to melt and block flow. I would not suggest doing this unless you remove the catalytic converter.

    I also have a Arrow pipe on it's way without a cat and will be interested to see what you come up with. That is one ugly system that has to go :)

    Did you take off the OEM dampner? Or are you running both?
