I have taken the canister off of other bikes that I have owned. I had to take a canister off of the BMW R nineT that I owned to make way for a new rear shock. If I overfilled my gas tank the gasoline fumes stunk up my in-house garage.
I didn't even notice the canister on my new Bobber. I'll probably leave it because I need to fill the tank as full as I can get it for the next ride.
