Emission control system bound for the bin.

Juuuuuuuuuust for something to do my buddy and I removed the emission control system from the 312 R today. Just for the record the stuff you remove weighs a total of 740 grams. Took just under 2 hours to install, the kit costs $30 US dollars.

More fuel capacity, most of the parts removed are from inside the tank.

So the excess weight is replaced by...... more fuel?

You removed the emission control system?

What about the environment? What about the polar bears?

now don't talk to me about the polar bear
don't talk to me about the ozone layer
ain't much of anything these days, even the air
they're running out of rhinos - what do I care?
let's hear it for the dolphin - let's hear it for the trees
ain't running out of nothing in my deep freeze
it's casual entertaining - we aim to please

What about when temps change quite a lot outside? Does it not help evacuate the fuel vapors thus maintaining a proper equilibrium inside the tank? I remember my brother removed his emissions stuff and he had some issues but then it turned out that some of the tubes were dconned or something and that was resulting in vacuum being generated in the tank. None of those side effects taking place? if not that would be a nice mod to do

Well, yes that's right. More mileage is a benefit and when the tank is run at lower volumes, below the level of the carbon canister which sits about half way up the tank, the bike will recieve the benefit of the equivalent reduced weight.

Now temp variation is a very good point. I'll be keeping a very close eye on this. The instructions imply that the tank will still be able to vent, but I'm not sure how. I'll fill the tank up and take a ride, checking the vacuum / pressure inside at intervals along the way. I'll let you know the results.
