Removing the emissions canister on my KLX400. I've got an idea. Is it crazy?

Recommended Posts

Like many of you, I've finally had it with the CA emissions canister on my bike. I have an idea and I wanted to run it by the experts in this forum. I was originally thinking of replacing the stock tank with a Clarke 3.9 however, I'm not crazy about the look and I know how hard it is to get after market graphics to stick to after market plastic tanks (actually I can't even find a place that sells tank graphics). But I'm sold on venting the tank from the top using a FreeFlo vent hose (the hose with the swivel and one way valve).

Is it possible to remove the charcoal canister (including the hoses), plug both the port on the carburetor and the one on the underside of the tank (where the breather hose connects), and then replace the stock gas cap with one that allows me to install a breather hose that vents from the top? Is this just plain stupid or does it have merit? If so where would I find a cap? The alternative is to vent the current breather hose out the bottom of the bike as described in the forum.

Thanks,

Jay

Vent is a vent. Vented cap will work fine if you can find one or add a vent to yours. Obviously you do not want it to spill gas out the vent

That will be hard to do because the cap on the metal SR tank.

IMS 3.2 looks good. Check out my bike in the garage. Nice tank and similar enough to OEM that graphics should look good on it.
