    Hi all,

    we are removing the evaporation can on our 2102 v7 classic to properly run Todd's ECU reflash. I've poured over this entire forum (and others) diligently regarding this procedure and I still have some questions. there is lots of info on v7 II and III which I'm adapting to my V7 I.......Im not looking for a full run down on this procedure....just help with two questions....Please advise. thx

    First question: Most members seem to simply block off the hoses that linked both throttle bodies to each other at the Y junction, or they connect both throttle bodies to each other using a length of hose....seems kinda sloppy to leave superfulous hoses to me....

    Can I simply replace the banjo bolts on the each throttle body with a properly sized regular bolt to block off this air passage way? I see someone did this on a Griso. See pic of the banjo bolt I'm referring to....

    2nd Question: Our evaporation can has a third hose that climbs up the right side of the bike and goes into the air box. See photo of this hose...i'm pointing to where is enters the airbox in the photo. What do I do to this hose? Block it off at the airbox?

    Yes, cap them if you like. The hose to airbox , delete & plug airbox hole. You can run line from tank overfill & vent down to fresh air under bike. Take hoses out, you'll find the tipover valve behind LH throttle body on the hose, delete valve & run down to fresh air.
    To find a thread on it you may have to look to 09' threads.

    You can remove the airbox feed hose, and I recommend leaving the intake barbs, and running a single hose from one side to the other. They idle better and also make it easier for future throttle body balancing.
