That explanation fails to explain the correlation of the problem with fuel level, but perhaps there is some tie in that is not obvious. It would seem unlikely that it is a cannister problem, but certainly possible. Cisco, are you sure the tech by-passed the cannister properly? Did you see him do it?
The tech pinched off a hose under the seat (vac?). The bike had the latest specs. It would die as if I cut off the switch, no stumble just off.
