Does anyone make an aftermarket oil cooler shroud to eliminate the void caused by removing the charcoal canister?
This is where I got mine. Genuine Ducati part they put on the European version bikes that don't have the canister. Looks 1000% better.Does anyone make an aftermarket oil cooler shroud to eliminate the void caused by removing the charcoal canister?
Yes, you can. I've seen bikes without it. DoWorkSon has posted pictures of his bike without it.Can't we just get rid of the plastic shroud all together - all of it?
there are actually TWO lines coming from the gas tank you need to keep open. one is the gas overflow line, and the other is the gas vent line.Just pull the lines off of the throttle bodies. They make little rubber caps for blocking off open vacuum lines. Just slide the caps over the nipples on the throttle bodies that the lines came off of. The only line you need to keep is the one that comes off of the gas tank, just route that one down wherever you can.
I also went this route rather than capping off the nipplesI have had this mod done for some time now. What I have had to redo was replace the nipples(HeHe) on the intakes with M6 bolts and washers loctited in place because of eventual vacuum leakage. Also I had to add hose clamps to the vapor/return lines at the fuel tank and "Y" I added because of excess fuel smell, you'll still smell vapors some because that was the job of the charcoal canister, but mine where excessive.
