WR250R EVAP Canister removal / hoses

Recommended Posts

I am a new owner of a 2015 WRR. When I went to install a skid plate tonight, I was surprised to see the California-only EVAP canister where the skid plate was to be installed. After some searching, it looks like removing it isn't a big deal. I found instructions at https://thumpertalk.com/forums/topic/746961-ca-model-charcoal-canister-removal-wr250r/.But my question is this: why all the cutting of hoses in the instructions? Can't I simply remove the canister and leave the hoses where they are, down by the skid plate? I could plug the hose that goes to the throttle body, and leave the other hose open for the vent, and simply let them hang near the bottom of the bike behind the skid plate, no? 

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Yup, don't see any reason your idea won't work fine.  Probably safer to vent the gas tank tube up high (maybe behind the headlight) to keep dirt, etc. from blocking the tube.
