Centerstand

I really want a centerstand on my 919. I have a California model bike but do not live in California. I have read all the posts on how to remove the canister, plug the pcv, reroute the drain tubes etc. Sounds like a ten minute job.

So here is my question: for someone like me outside California, are there absolutely no downsides to removing canister? Zero performance issues? No hard starting when cold, stumble off idle, change in throttle response, change in idle, or anything else?

Well you could swap the ECM out for one without the emissions junk. Or put a PCIII on it. I'm sure someone knows how to bypass everything on here tho

Has nothing to do with the canister...

OP, I have a cali bike and not in cali. There is no downside to removing the canister/emissions stuff. Its very easy to do so my advice is to go ahead and do it and ride around for a bit. If you don't like it for whatever reason, put it back on.

I have a Cali bike with a center stand. The canister is currently making sure that the inside of a zip-lock bag is properly protected. I noticed absolutely no difference in the way the bike runs when I removed the canister.
