    2007 R1200R Canister removal

    Is there a thread on how to jumper out the canister that sits in front of the front shock? I need to set up new pair of shocks and it sure would be nice to have that out of the way even if temporarily.

    OK, I assume this is too touchy of a subject. I did a google search and found several posts on how to do this along with a lot of controversy as to whether this is good for the environment and against the law etc. I really just want to get it out the way to play with the top preload nuts without the can in the way. Hope I didn't dredge up a sore subject and I apologize for that. I just put in a rebuilt ABS module and need to road test the bike so I put the canister back on. I'll pull it out later when I set up the shocks.

    I suggest you do a search on "cannisterectomy" there are instructions available. It's your bike do with it what you want. Don't worry about the "greenies" as every mile you ride decreases your impact on the environment as opposed to driving those same miles.

    I would save the canister though. Some states are rumbling about smog checks for motorcycles, at which point you will need it. They keep threatening us here in California. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks, I saw the term "cannisterectomy" out there. I guess I should have added the word "removal" to my title. I'll go back and read those. Hopefully it will point me to the right size hose fittings to use or I'll pick up a assortment. Its not too many lines. I'll save the canister

    cheers, Fletch
