yeah fuel evap and exhaust emissions are two completely different things. I get your point 100% about grandkids and all, but it’s like comparing apple and oranges here. The evap canister is there to gather fumes coming from the gas tank but if you have many misfortunes and always overfill your thank, the (non supposed) returned dirty fuel might damage your engine. That’s why people remove the canister. Yeah your bike might smell a little like gasoline if your are always clumsy and overfill your thank, but that has absolutely no correlation with exhaust emissions and global warming. ☺Evap. It`s there for a reason. Its saving the planet for our grandkids from emissions.. what`s not to like about that? when it goes wrong (mine has not) fix it.. like you would a puncture. Would you ride around on a solid wheel jus to avoid a puncture?
