I just found my print out for the cansiterectomy the other day. It states you had to remove the trunk, the panel beneath it and the mud flap.
It also said "remove the hose from the canister to the intake (of what)? Take a machine screw and insert it into the end of the hose."
I took Pete's advice, contacted the dealer and he agreed to do the computer check at no cost. It has not stalled the past three days I used it, but the RPM's have fluctuated at times, the highest I've seen it go was about 1400RPM. It does this once in a while, for no apparent reason. Gas has been under half a tank.
My other thought is, is there only one gage of fuel line (US vs metric?), and what parts do I need to have before I take this apart?
My eyesight is a real handicap working on stuff these days. It took five times longer than it should have to put the screws in the wind deflectors yesterday, than had I not needed to put my glasses on and off to see what I was drilling, doing and locate the parts I dropped........
Not really knowing what holds the deflectors on, it would seem one of the attachment points is loosening inside the fairing. My temp repair will hold until I can better figure that out. We just do not have any more money to put into this bike. I have nearly $1800 in parts sitting here waiting to install. The time is NOW! Weather is great. Be a great time to do a short two day trip somewhere.
Yes, I do agree disconnecting the canister is the way to go.
Not ever having yet put this on the center stand or done any work on this due to a bad back and having lost a lot of strength, I must admit to being quite hesitant to tackle the front shock.
I will attempt the rear shock after the computer check next Tuesday.

Greatly appreciate all the help!!!
