uh????
There's no Charcoal canister on this bike. Got me stumped.... post a pic, just copy and paste it into the thread. I think charcoal canisters are only for carborated engines and have long been gone. But don't quote me on this.

Charcoal Canister is a mod that only us California guys get to do


Take it off, here's how: http://rswarrior.com/forums/p/48979/688491.aspx#688491

Take it off, here's how: Fuel Canister Removal - Road Star Warrior Forum : Yamaha Star Warrior Forums
I followed the same set of instructions on mine and no regrets

The referenced link here: Fuel Canister Removal is not done properly IMO. The 2-hoses removed here should be left connected to their original components as follows.
  • The left hose in photo here remains connected as built to the TEE and doesn't connect to the canister. This is a drain (residual oil build up in factory airbox) as well the fuel overflow & breather from the gas tank.
  • The right hose in photo here should be left connected to the Roll-Over Valve as built but disconnected from the top of the canister (forward/front hose on canister).
The rear hose on the canister runs to the rear Cyl #1 throttle body (California specific TB) and should be removed. You'll need to cap/plug the 5/32" vacumm barb. The enclosed drawing shows the hose to be removed:



Reference from Factory Manual Below

California Factory Model: http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/1/1/1673654/My%20Documents/Pages%202-50%20warrior_sercice.pdf

Non-California Factory Model: http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/1/1/1673654/My Documents/Pages 2-44 warrior_sercice.pdf

Disclaimer: The writer is an owner of a non-CA Warrior purchased in MI and has not done a canister removal. He is cognizant of the different throttle bodies having worked on several CA Warriors and believes the information presented above to be accurate.

Re: Canister Removal Done Correctly

Alan-


Looking at the CA versus the non-CA model the only difference appears to be the fuel canister and the extraline to the throttle body


On the non-CA models:


hose (#61)that comes off the T-fitting (#60) routes down the frameas a vent


hose (#69) comes off the roll over valve (#66) and routes down the frame as a vent


On the CA models:


hose (#61)that comes off the T-fitting (#60) routes down the frameas a vent


hose (#77) comes off the roll over valve (#66) and routes down to the charcoal canister


The other hose for the canister (un-numbered in the picutre) routes off to the cyclinder TB (per your post)


So the method I followed basically removed the vent all together since I have the roll over valve connected to the T-fitting?


I would suspect thatnon-CA bikes that the fitting on the throttle body capped?

NorCalWarrior check this thread: Fuel Canister Removal: http://rswarrior.com/forums/p/48979/988264.aspx#988264


EDITED: If you reread my original post you'll see that the CA TB #1is a differentPN than all others. My MI bike doesn't have that tube as discussed.


The reason i replied to this topic was that if the canister removal was done to your original referenced thread it's not healthy for the bike because of the 1-way valve in the OEM airbox. The fumes and vapors are locked

Re: Canister Removal Done Correctly

When I asked about it the answer seemed a lot more simple.... "Disconnectthe cannisterand plug the hose that has the slight vacum". It's never caused any issues or problems that I've been aware of.

... but if you want to clean up your down tubes after doing the coil relocate you'll want to remove and plug the fitting at the TB as i instructed



The original referenced thread by NorCalWarrior for the canister removal is not correct IMOas described here in detail: http://rswarrior.com/forums/p/48979/988264.aspx#988264


CLEAN-UP THE DOWN TUBES as shown here and still retain the functionality of all the OEM parts:

Keep in mind that i've done the V-BAK and coil relocate and the line running under the gas tank from the Tee runs down the outside of the battery box below the swing armfor over-flow fuel & venting.


As shown here when the fuel expands on a hot day.







Viewof the battery box stubbydrain attached to the bottom of thebox.The 2-tie wraps secure my modified gas vent/overflow line that passes below the frt of the swing arm pivot shaft! The new hose is only partially visible in this photo as its hidden by thebattery box drain!

since I assumed it was correct - now that I know it isn't I've got some work to do - thanks for the info!

Marcus - apologies that I led you down the wrong path.....

Re: Canister Removal Done Correctly

Thanks everybody, especially Alan. I have wanted to remove that canister for a while now. As of 5 minutes ago, the canister is in my scrap pile.


I left the vent hose on the down tube for now and will eventually run a hose through the battery box and down by the swing arm. I also plugged the hose that runs to the TB at the end of the hose for now.This weekend, I will plug it up right at the TB the next time I take the tank off. Probably shave off the bracket this weekend as well.These threads are inspirational.
