What is this ugly thing?

Anyone know what that big ugly black cannister is in the fifth pic? I assume it is emissions related to the new bikes being street legal? It is certainly ugly and probably adds weight but if I can get a plate right off the showroom floor, it may be okay to put up with. the '06's are so tempting. Now if they were red and black . . .

Those ugly things are fuel vapor canisters, just like on your car, the gas tank vent hose has a check valve and the hose goes to the black canister by the bars, the vacuum canister valve on the lower left of the engine vents the

vapors into the other canister on the bottom and purges them back into the engine. I own a auto repair shop and get to work on this "JUNK" all the time.

It would take about 10 minutes to remove it all.

Looks pretty similar to the setup that came with my SM610. To remove it pull off the spaghetti and cannisters, reroute the carb vent lines, and plug the vacuum nipple. Pretty simple to do.
