Alright folks, I am going to start this thread for when the time comes that the folks who already have, or will soon have, their Scramblers and are planning to remove the awful EVAP Canister that is destined for certain markets, can discuss it here and offer their input/advice. It should be simple but some folks would like to see a step by step (w/pics) and I think we should offer it here, and there are a few steps that some folks miss. I've never owned a Ducati, but I would imagine it's the same: leave the hose from the gas tank unblocked and venting to the atmosphere, plug the intake to the throttle body, remove the check/tip over valve to the tank...

just sayin...

Ducati should realize by now that we all remove the charcoal canisters so why put them in. They cause more issue isses than they do good. If you have owned a ducati you know exactly what i am talking about. every god **** time lol

So when you buy any duc this should be the first thing that should be done.

You may also want to check with your dealer to see if they will remove it. I questioned my dealer about it and was told they will remove it at no charge during the first service if requested.
I don't trust dealers with things that I would make sure are just right, so I'll do it myself.

Ducati can't just remove the charcoal canisters for bikes headed to the US, etc. - it's an emissions regulation that is out of their hands. They have no control over it. The Euro bikes don't have it.

Whats the reason for the cannister hatred? New to Ducatis, is this a right of passage or something? ;)

No seriously... why remove?
Number 1: It's super ugly (this is reason enough)
Number 2: It's known to cause hot start issues, and I'm not sure what else
Number 3: It adds weight
Let's see, besides what he said above, how can I best sum it up in one thought:

It's just something else that is there to take away part of the soul of the motorcycle. Therefore, it's gone.

Y'know what I mean? It's another thing that chokes up the bike. From the canister, to the exhaust, to the fueling...once you "un-choke" all those things...the bike comes alive.

As well as the EVAP canister, is there anything else that us newbies to the world of Ducati need to know?

The one i test rode at Ducati of San Antonio did not have that canister. Im wondering if its only some states that require it or maybe the dealer removed it from the demo bike.

I removed mine today. It was pretty easy and took about 30 minutes. It's similar to a Monster, except we only have one throttle body, so there is 1 less hose, and one less hole to plug. The pain in the butt part is getting at the hose barb fitting on the throttle body, because it's up inside pretty far. I was able to get at it with a 10mm socket attached to universal joint, attached to an extension.

You will need an M6x8 1.0 pitch threaded bolt to plug the hole. I used an alan head style.

I didn't take any pictures yet (sorry). I loosely followed this: Removing the Evaporative Emissions Canister

Here are the steps I took:

1. Remove the plastic faring around the oil cooler to get at the hose barb on the throttle body. There are 3 metric alan head screws holding it in place.
2. Remove the small plastic triangular piece that's held on by one 3mm allen screw (the piece in the triangle of the trellis frame).
3. Disconnect the hoses from the top of the evap canister (the bottom hose is an overflow and not connected to anything).
4. Remove the evap canister and bracket, smile at how much better it already looks.
5. One of the hoses goes up to the gas tank, and the other goes to the throttle body. Follow the hose to the throttle body. This is where you curse when you see where it is.
6. I was able to release the hose clamp with a needle nose pliers through the hole where I removed the triangular piece of plastic. Do that, and then you can pull the hose off the barb on the throttle body.
7. Using a 10mm socket attached to universal joint attached to an extension, finagle your way in through the hole where the faring was that surrounds the oil cooler, and get the socket over the hose barb. Remove it, and keep the copper washer.
8. Screw the M6x8 back into the same spot on the throttle body, and use the copper washer that was on the hose barb you just took off.
9. Route the remaining breather hose from the tank down along with the other hoses in the area.
10. Reward yourself with a beer.

Done!

I can post pictures and highlight things when I have some time in a few days if needed.
