    Please explain to everyone how it would have an effect since the gases from the canister are recycled through Cylinder and go through the combustion cycle in the cylinder with the fuel and air. Magic doesn’t apply here.

    Idk man, but it definitely pops a lot less on both quickshifter upshifts and downshifts on my SAR :dunno

    You’re confusing people by posting about something you Just said you don’t understand how it works or what it does.


    You are confusing the evaporative canister system with the secondary air system it looks like you also removed and stated it decreases the exhaust popping (it does)

    you?

    Other than replacing the pathetic excuse for headlamp bulbs on my 2015 S with a Cyclops L.E.D., the first thing I ordered was a Stage II Canister removal kit from Rotweiller [$70]. It is a complete kit, takes a little effort to install, has detailed instructions [+ VIDEO!]. It seemed like a 'no-brainer' to me. If you own a KTM, their offerings [although not always the cheapest on the market] are not wanting in (quality) selection, that's for sure, and their service is quick also...

    Will the canister removal create problems when undergoing technical visit (DMV or Highway Patrol Station)?

    I would be astonished if any of those guys would be able to pick out what you have done. The O2 sensors are in place, along with the cats and the engine area is so shrouded and compact, it would take a KTM tech to spot the makeover...
    If any of those clowns questions you, just tell them that is the way you bought it.
    Do yourself a favour and check out the install video on their site. Simple, straight forward and complete. You won't be sorry...:-)

    This has been a very informative read, thank you all for your input. I do have one question. By unplugging the main fuel tank drain vent can it potentially suck up dust in to the engine. I am new to KTM's and have just bought a 1090 that will do mostly off road, so just a little anxious about dust induction. Cheers.

    Since it will vent directly to the atmosphere a small amount of dust could get into your tank and fuel. I’ve done the same thing and figure it’s a non-issue with the filtration that’s in place. I have the Guglatech Godzilla in place as well

    You could put a small crankcase breather filter in the line and tuck it out of the way. They're pretty cheap.

    I think so too. An open fuel tank breather pipe sticking out the bottom of the bike was standard design before the charcoal canisters came in.

    That’s a good point but the large size of the vent hose on these bikes concerns me a little. The vent hoses on all my previous bikes were tiny compared to this one. Also wondering if dust could work it’s way all the way up into the tank. I wonder if it is reduced at the T before entering the tank.

    What’s the second hose running to the bottom that’s also plugged. The smaller one.
