    The can in front of the rear tire is the charcoal canister to recycle fuel vapor and keep the green peace people happy. There is not a vacuum line on the fuel pressure regulator, just a fuel line that goes to the charcoal canister if I remember correctly. I took mine off long ago and it now resides in a dark corner of the house somewhere. My basement smells like fuel vapor some times, but my bike is so much happier.

    There is a nipple on the pressure regulator, that is the reference for the regulator. There has been some talk of connecting that nipple to the vacuum ports on the intake manifolds and other such sillyness. I think there may have even been some factory drawings indicating to do so, or so I have heard. But as it is the reference for the regulator, and putting a variable vacuum on the port would alter the fuel pressure (in a variable way) I would not play with it.
