    That's what I thought, just making sure. I agree, drain that plug by the engine occasionally. Thanks!

    Why couldnt KTM locate it like that? Seems like somebody thought really hard about how to mount it so it wasted as much space as possible:rofl
    Barekat and Cabrito like this.

    That's some brilliant re-engineering! Maybe I'll do the same to my bike to help save the polar bears... I Just yanked mine out to make room for the tools.

    Old post but spot on. I think a lot of folks don't think that point through. Removing a canister can resolve some issues however overfilling the fuel tank in combination with smaller canisters and limited purge - especially when the canister has a bunch of raw fuel in it - causes some issues that are avoidable.

    My Capo in the sun would drip quite a bit of fuel post canister - there's a trade-off there. Routing the vent hose to a proper location is worth the effort, IMHO.

    Thanks to all who have done this for the idea. The mounting ears on the canister of the 1090 are different. Looks like they're a part of the canister itself. Will need some hacksaw work. Hmmmm.....
