Comments and Advice...

The front block off plate took some time. As others have mentioned, remove the oil tank bolts so you can push it out of the way. Also a small hand, mine is not small enough, and a little box wrench. Other than that, you need to figure it out, but you *can* do it.


The wires are easy with resistors if you take your time.

Pulling the throttle bodies and all the plugs, just let the wires tell you where they want to go and you'll be fine. I recylced the factory tubing where ever I could avoiding capping off for vacuum. The exception was the cap included with the block off plates.

I also did the 15 minute idle trick. As you might guess, the cats are still in the pipes. Without the SAS no longer pumping air, the bike is cooler, starts easier, and it actually sounds better. A bit deeper growl. I also took the bike to 103 MPH (21" wheel setting) that afternoon in the beautiful San Deigo desert. What a machine.

Hope this helps those on the fence, and shares some details that were cloudy in my mind.

Happy trails,
FastEddy

Nice job. I'm currently about halfway into mine right now as I'm awaiting shims from the dealer for the valve check.



But looks like I can finish up the canisterectomy. Your write up is great.

Thanks,

paochow

FastEddy, great writeup and pics. What did you do with the tank breather hoses? Where did you run them?

Vent Tubes Between Tanks...

First off, this tube remains totally stock, in the same U position connecting both sides....

The next three pics show the throttle side tank, with the stock routing of the vent/crossover tubes. I left the tube in the plastic with the turn signal, to connect to the tank, and leaving the "pass through" that will connect tot he "other side". However the connection to the other side is where I recylced a "T" and put a shorty tank breather.

Here we see again, the stock setup, as these pics are still "removal". However, when the cannister is removed, I used that pass through elbow to connect a tube on the inside plastic, to the clutch side tank. This is pretty much the stoc path, with the cannister removed (imagine the assembly application). Then that elbow, on the exposed side will have a tube run onder the gauge cluster, to a recycled "T" and again, the shorty tank breather like a MX bike.

this orginal stock image shows the position of the elbow pointing to the rear of the bike. I turned to point up, allowing for a more natural trip for the tube going under the gauges, to the "T" and the shorty tank breather that will eventually sit on top of the "T".

The "T" is to connect both sides together so as to keep a very stock appearance. With the shorty tank vent, no one will know that I'm venting into the atmosphere.

And the last of the "removal" for the clutch side tank, hopefully depicting (imaginary) the connection I made for the tank and the tube into the internal plastic of the "turn signal" section cover thingy. It also shows the external "elbow" point to the back of the bike, and as noted previously, I pointed it straight up to 12 o'clock.

Hey FastEddy - Great write up on the "pollution solution". One question - When removing SAS and replacing the block-off plates, do you remove the reed valve behind the plate?
