GAS CANISTOR LOCATION

I am wanting to do the charcoal canister removal but I can't find it. I have all tupperware off and down to the tank. Is it below the tank? This is a 2005 K1200LT. I am new to this bike so any help would be great.

Cool Re: GAS CANISTOR LOCATION

Actually it is under the top case. No big deal to get to but you can do a 'modified' canisterectomy as explained on this forum with only raising the seat. Just cutting hoses and plugging one hose.

Re: GAS CANISTOR LOCATION

Got it... thanks for all the comments. I went ahead and took rear case off and I am glad I did. There was a mouse nest in there and they chewed the heck out of the wires back there. Any ideas besides tape??

While your at it, you can move the top case back as well. "Cause, honey your back is too fat" Great video as well.

Depending on how bad the conductors are chewed, you could try liquid electrical tape and let each wire dry separately. When you are satisfied with the repair then wrap the whole thing with "Rescue Tape", a silicone tape that sticks to itself.

For one thing I don't like cats. But the funny thing was he had a handful of rat poison in the nest. I guess for the long hard winter.... I don't know if he got the last laugh or me...
