    My wife's Canadian market 2011 BMW 535i GT uses the ABS for tire monitoring. It is sooo much less trouble than sensors. It works when it's needed. Another plus is you don't need to buy 4 more sensors for your snow tires/wheels.

    Wow didn't know they have already been utilizing that, good!

    Exactly. Plus paying to remove and reinstall the tires just to replace the stupid sensors (unless they happen to fail just when you are replacing tires). And not sure about cars but on my BMW motorcycle they didn't even spec the wheels to be made light at the valve area to allow for the weight of the sensor.

    Thanks, what are the indications the the EVAP valve is jammed? I had a recent issue where after a fill up the pick was running very rough and the idle would pulsate between 1000 and 2000 rpm. I opened the filler cap and that seemed to solve the issue. It happened one more time and again opening the filler seemed to resolve it.. thanks

    That would be fuel going into the evap can through the over flow and tank breather lines, both lines go to the well around your gas cap.
    If your valve is plugged you may get pressure in tank or suction in tank.
    I've been taking the stuff off as long as Guzzi has been putting it on, 1993 and newer.

    These gize do a simple, cheap alternative which is completely trouble-free. Stops fuel gushing through if the bike falls over, yet allows pressure to vent on a hot day. Allows unobstructed air to flow into the tank as fuel is used. Best of all - It's completely silent. Product doesn't compete with any of Todd's offerings.

    I know this has been discussed ad nauseum but my 2013 V7 is my first modern bike. Attached is a picture of the evap can. Are these the only 2 lines to disconnect and plug? Anything else needs to be done. Thanks.

    Cap the small one and the larger one has a valve on it, don't plug that one, as it goes to the blue/orange tipover valve. Follow lines to where they go.

    I have removed the brass coupling from the hose that connects the air intake to the charcoal canister, and replaced it with something that completely blocks the hose. Looks stock, but vacuum leak fixed.

    For now, I have left the rest of the system intact. Is it correct that the fuel tank will be able to breathe as needed without the vacuum applied to the system? Assuming the tipover/ufo shaped valve is working properly.

    I just want to make sure I'm understanding how this thing works.

    Just remove the tip over valve. They cause problems. I've been tossing them on all bikes.

    Thanks for this info. As I understand you are saying this is an alternative to disconnecting this EVAP cannister. Which of the products are you referring to specifically.

    Thanks

    It is right behind oil drain plug & in front of exhaust crossover.
    If you can't find it, maybe someone took it off already.

    Yep, MIA already. I would look on the rubber intake and see how they plugged the port.
    Right in center of the fork w/a hose attached or cap on it. Right in front of throttle body.

    Edit: looks like that's where it sits.

    Can you post a picture of your bike between the V towards the back on the engine?
