    Welcome to the forum! As I see it's your first post I thought I'd give you a start- (our search engines sails are torn )

    And I'm sure some of our members that have done this can be of even more help.
    Good Luck.

    Neuter that baby.

    I removed mine after a long and slightly expensive process to understand why it ran good, then ran like cr@p, then suddenly ran good due to the vent hoses having been switched. I have the TB ports capped with BMW part 13 54 7 694 924 ($1.24) and used some of the removed hose to route the tank-to-canister line beside the existing vent to the bottom of the bike - very neat. 1200+ miles later the R1100R and I am happy. If you are concerned about venting fumes to the air I gotta say it is a very small issue and much less than my two lawnmowers, two chainsaws, weed whacker, tractors, antique car etc. all of which have vent-to-air tanks. I put the parts in the R1100R storage box for the next owner to wonder about if I ever decide to sell it.

    If you must make a mistake, make a new one each time.
