It's bulky and unneccessary so I took it out. My "green" European readers may find this offensive but this is a motorcycle blog, not a political blog so I'll avoid discussing the perceived environmental consequences here.
Here is the diagram for the system in the repair manual:
Here's what it looks like, located under the tank behind the rear cylinder head.
I joined the fuel tank breather hose to the evap drain hose, essentially bypassing the canister.
This is with the EVAP tray removed. Underneath the tray is a heat shield for the rear exhaust headers. The rear shock is also visible here.
I plugged the "purge solenoid valve to throttle valve" hose with a big bolt. This line goes to a manifold under the throttle body which splits it into 8 individual lines, 2 going into each intake port. To thoroughly remove the system, you could remove all the lines and insert vacuum plugs in the holes. It would be a lot more work and likewise a lot tougher to reverse if you had to.
The tray is reinstalled but with the solenoid and canister removed. I duct taped the solenoid plug and throttle hose to the tray so they won't rattle around.
This is what was removed. I threw it in a box of stuff I've removed from this bike... the box is starting to get heavy.
As was the case with the PAIR solenoid, the EVAP solenoid does not provide feedback to the ECU and therefore shouldn't cause a trouble code or malfunction light by being removed.
