Hey guys quick question. Is there a benefit in removing the Evap canister on a 2017 CBR1000RRA ?
If so what do you do with the two drain hoses and will it throw a code.

Thank you !

I've been wanting to ditch my evap can too. I'm just wondering what I would do to the vent tube. Just have the tank vent to atmosphere? I'm worried dirt would get in there. Also not sure if the bike would throw a code...

EVAP solenoid doesn't trigger a code if unplugged. Just vent to atmosphere, 49 State bikes don't have EVAP canisters.
You will have to cap the return nipples on the throttle bodies. Either at the hose junction or on the throttle body using 4 of each part number 16215-MV4-000 and 95002-02070, boost caps and clips.

Thank you for the info RC45. Is it easy to get to the nipples on the bodies? I'd rather go that route and ditch the unnecessary hosing etc.

Thanks guys for the reply. Here is what I learned . Because my ECU was flashed my Evap / Purge Valve was disabled. So yesterday I removed the Evap canister and plugged the control solenoid valve hose with a bolt and a clamp and the fuel tank breather hose I joined them together and left them. Started my bike and all is good. Total weight loss is only about a pound or so but now it will be easier to install my quick shifter if it ever gets here. I learn something new everyday about this bike thanks to others with more knowledge like RC45.

Awesome. Are you concerned at all about leakage where you removed the bolts that hold that bracket on?

I know you will put the bolts back in but I'm not sure if the seal is affected by removing and then replacing those bolts. And thank you for the pics (y).

Good morning HP17,
Wow I'm so glad you mentioned that as I did forget to put the bolts back in when I started it up thank God no leaks. Bolts are in now torqued to 5.9 lbf ft and with the motor running seal looks good no leaks.
Thank you for bring that to my attention as this is a learning process (y) for me.

I removed the evap can on my 86 VFR750 but it is not inspected for smog stuff. Being in California and their hypocritical smog stance, letting some vehicles pollute heavily and cracking down on clean vehicles like our bikes, I will leave it on the '17. While it would be nice to lose a pound, it is middle of bike, front to back and vertically, so doesn't affect the handling and it is too much work right now to get to the injector body to put on the vacuum block nipples. Might change it cover to carbon fiber if I can find one. :)

I hear ya John. If not for wanting to install a quick shifter I would have left it alone but I had to move it anyway.
OEM parts are backed up I ordered it on the 26th of October lucky for me I have to other bikes to ride.

What’s up RC. Quick question for clarification. You said 49 states don’t have evap canister? So I’m assuming only Cali bikes have them? My bike was purchased new in Wisconsin and shipped to Florida, here’s hoping it doesn’t apply to me 🙏😂

Sometimes states other than Cali get the Cali-equipped bikes too. When you get the bike just check to see if the canister is there. If not, then you got a "49-state" bike.

My SP model is a California model so it has the EVAP can and it has the factory quick shift also, no interference.
Really like the quick shifter. Nice to be able to shift without a clutch or throttle change. Is it any wonder that they can ripoff a 10 sec quarter mile. ;)

Hi Pedro,
I did not notice any difference in the way the bike performed or idled but it did give it a cleaner look.
This question is best answered by others with more knowledge then me.

Outside of weight savings, is there any other benefit of removing evap can?
Less hoses when you are trying to get the bottom fairing on. Cleans up the area behind the engine if you plug up the ports on the throttle body. I stripped all the emissions junk for my CA bike simply because it was lots of clutter under the tank. That charcoal canister is a hefty hunk of metal that has no business on a bike especially since I figured I'm already polluting so much running a no-cat exhaust.
