To cannister or not to cannister - that is the ?

5 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of doing all the baisic mods to my XRL and presently have the crankcase breather hooked up to one of the openings on the airbox. However, I read a couple of posts in which the guys insist that the bike idles better with the cannister left in the loop. Any definitive answer on that?:applause:

hey bibleman, i removed my cannister and i have zero idle issues. that can only stores unused fuel vapors. i too routed the hose into the airbox(before i did my battery relocation!). now ive run that hose up to the seat with a small filter at the end of it.

Hi Martinfan! Sorry, I live in NJ - the other Bibleman must be an IMPOSTER:p I appreciate your response because I think you inadvertently gave some interesting info. I could see how attaching the crank vent to the airbox could cause some fluctuation at idle, but venting it to the atmosphere could avoid that. I was actually thinking about doing the same set-up using a K&N crankcase filter.:applause:

The canister that connects to the crankcase is an oil seperator, only the cali bikes have a charcoal canister that collects fuel vapors.
