Ohlins Reservoir Mounting
I just installed a new Ohlins rear shock on my 2003 KRS. The instructions clearly show the remote reservoir (with the compression damping adjuster on it) being mounted in the place the charcoal canister normally resides, on the inner rear fender. Any input on this? The reservoir and it's hose don't seem to be able to be mounted anywhere else, like on the frame rail or whatever.
Does the canister really do much? Will I create faults by running the bike this way? Should I connect the loose hoses together - with another section of hose, or something? Is the one hose (off the bottom ofthe canister, on the left side of the bike) just a drain or overflow?
Or should I really be looking at a different mounting location altogether?
Any comments will be appreciated. Sorry if this has already been hashed over, I could find some reference to this dilemma, but nothing definitive.
