As some of you may have read, I am the new owner of an 05 LT.
But of course being a new owner, coming from R bikes, I am a nervous nelly.
I just did the canisterectomy on my bike since I tend to fill my tanks all the way, as much as possible and then some. Did not want to collapse my tank etc. So I got to the canister and got it off with no problems. The hose that runs up the left side of the bike I capped with a screw as suggested in other threads. The tube up the right side, to vent the tank I unthreaded to its cable tie about the front of the battery, then passed it along side the battery and down to a eye bolt type nylon loop with another vent line running through it.
Now the issue, this other vent line was actually pushed to the rear and venting right in front of, actully on the tire. The tire was rubbing it. This did not seem correct so I moved it forward into the Y of the swingarm. I routed the tank vent line to the same location, in the Y. My concern is that this is just an inch or so from the catalytic converter. In the event that I do get a wee bit too much gas in the tank and it exits this tube, is it too close to the Cat? And is this the correct place for the other hose to be? Is this where others route the vent tube?
Oh and my observation, for new LT riders, if you want to move your top case to the rear mount, or do the canisterectomy and may want the top case moved, do them at the same time! Don't do like I did and move the case, and then all proud of myself decide to do the canister only to find out the case has to come off! Entire thing takes maybe 15 mintues to do both. Do them at the same time.
