Remove underseat canister  

What to do with the connection hoses? Route to drain or seal them off? Time to put this machine on the road.

Re: Remove underseat canister new [re: BMWMAN] 

Large hose on right end of cannister, leave open and route down to drain any liquid gasoline that might get in there. Smaller hose on right end must be plugged. Hose coming out of the bottom on the left end is the cannister vent and is open to the atmosphere. You can either remove this hose from the bike entirely or attach it to the end of the large hose if it helps to facilitate draining. It is important to remember that gasoline landing on your engine, transmission, or drive shaft housing will, over time, stain the clear coat to an ugly yellow color. so chose carefully where you want the tank vent hose (the larger one) to terminate.

Thanks, looks like baked on cat pee, but much harder to remove. I'll plug and drain. Thanks!
