After a ride with our Daveh, I started having symptoms so I did the canisterectomy last Saturday. It is the first time I ever disassembled any part of my bike so I was nervous. It went without a hitch. The bike is running smooth and powerfully with 44 mpg at 70mph, two up, loaded cases and Cee Baileys #2 up all the way, just like SWMBO likes it. No gas smell at all.
If you are concerned about not having a canister, you can replace it with a new one, BMW part number 16131464924, about $38 from the dealer. You need a new cable strap to hold it in because you must cut the old one to get it out.
