My tech removed my cannister without much prodding. They dont like them as they can be problematic. Every bike I have owned, I removed them. It's a pretty popular procedure on motorcycles as these things are not perfected yet in the eyes of a lot of riders. Of course there was no paper work
No gas spew either of course.
I just rode the bike very hard for 230 miles at a dual sport event through some sections of technical stuff. She performed flawlessly and never stalled once. Ill post a report on my (now changed) opinion on the 800 in good offroad conditions soon. But in short, the bike is just the unbelievable and deserves credit. Some of the orange boys were taken by surprise as the big 800 was nipping at their rear tire at times


She never stalled but she did get a bit dirty over the 2 day event.
