I am all for it!! I also agree that the canister most certainly does its job. My point is the guys that take it off will justify it by whatever means possible. Others will also just not give a damn, go ahead and do it... I am surprised that the canister is not required in Europe, but not sure why that is.. Maybe because we only have unleaded fuel here ?? At any rate I am not making any moves to change my exhaust or anything else on the bike at the expense of the environment.
