Re: the mysterious canister??
Dreaded Canister: a collection of small projectiles in a case, to be fired from a cannon. It's hell on infantry. Oh, never mind....
The LT charcoal canister, part of the evaporative emission control system, good for the environment, bad for LT reliability. They are known to get plugged by heavy rain, or fuel from overfilling the tank or tipping the bike over. The result can be vacum in the gas tank, causing collpase of the tank, fuel starvation, and damage to the fuel level sensor mechanism. So, lots of us have removed it.
Lots of posts/threads here to lell you how to remove it.
Welcome to the asylum.
