R12 Cannisterectomy

Removing the Cannister on a R1200ADV

The purpose of this modification is two-fold. First I’ll be installing Ohlins and wanted to free up some space for the installation. Secondly, and more importantly, if the gas tank is filled too high the overflow will route the excess gas into the charcoal canister. If this happens the bike might run poorly or even stall on you until the surplus gas drains from the canister.
