canisterectomy

performed a canisterectomy , removal of the charcoal gas vapor can from my 04 1150R while the tank was off for paint. the feed and return lines were never removed...i wrapped the quick disconnect ends in a zip lock bad and taped closed.

vapor lines & solenoid were removed and the vac pipes at the throttle bodies capped. the two vapor lines running from the tank were connected using a butt connector that was in the old lines.
now i have a very noisy fuel pump??....pump was quiet before. the only noise was at pump up then it would turn off.

what gives?????

thanx

Are you low on fuel? Pumps are noisy when they aren't submerged. Are the fuel lines connected the right way?

the fuel lite was on so i put about 2.5 gal of 93 in it ...didn't do much good. the fuel lines were never disconnected from the tank side. the disconnects only go on one way.....each is opposite of the other.
i just removed the right side cosmetic cover where i could reach in and pull out the two vapor lines that are butted together. disconnected them and started the bike just to prove to myself that i hadn't caused a problem. didn't make a difference......rebutted them, tucked them under the tank and replaced the little cover.
maybe i'm just forgetting how noisy this oil head is man, i do like my air heads! now i'm wondering if a clogging fuel filter will stress the pump enough to make it noisy?

i spoke with my faithful BMW mech from Rennsport motorrad,

he stated it was not unusal for the oil heads to begin with or develop a noisy fuel pump. his suggestion was NON ENTHANOL gas evrey so often with two cap fulls of marvel mystery oil.

i had the tank off for painting and now think some condesation may have developed during the period of inactivity....

i put 2.5 gal of 93 in there with 59 ml of heet water remover and a few cap fulls of ATF....i will purchase some marvel.

seems to have quieted it some .....

V,B.

These should be run to vent at the bottom of your bike, NOT connected together. You can create a vacuum issue if the vent to the filler plugs, and you are likely adding water into your tank if the filler area gets wet.

Or, did I misunderstand what you did?

I took it off my '05 because it was in the way when it came time to install my after market shocks. I don't even know where it is on my '13. Until/unless it becomes an issue it will stay wherever it is hidden.

When I put Wilbers on Twd Porter recommended removing the canister since wilbers want the adjuster there. I got the adjuster to fit where the old one was and kept the canister.

Answer: For the same reason that you'd take the piece of shit off an old ratty bike.

The lines must both be run to below the center stand as overflow lines. One is the tank vent/overflow and the other is the cap area drain. If you interconnect them you will be causing a vapor lock possibly and most likely drawing moisture into the tank when it rains, or god forbid, wash your bike.

here's the link i used to do the removal....
http://www.ibmwr.org/r-tech/oilheads...Canisterectomy

here's the last line of instructions regarding the vac lines...
Carefully pull tube (G) off the butt connector. Discard it. Take tube (E) and lay it next to the butt connector. It will need to be trimmed to the correct length. Cut it and connect it to the butt connector. Now reinstall the tube clip you removed so that it ties the two "downtubes" together.

ah...the clip ties the two lines together,.. not the butt connector to the two lines.....
i found these directions vague.....

will remove the butt connector connection....

thanx......kyle B
