I have seen it on all my MK2's and always wondered what it was ? I just assumed it was essential. Maybe a detailed removal process with pictures would be nice, to see which pipes are removed or blocked.

My main question is - what benefit its there in removing it ? performance ? weight ? mpg ?   :002:

the main benefit of removing it - is removing it.  why do you need all that crap?  it is actually dangerous, because when it gets blocked, you will have the tank vacuum lock. and it is ugly, heavy and carries many lines/hoses as if that bike was not complicated enough.  if you have any sense, throw it where it belongs, to the trash. removing the Pair Valve has an additional benefit of cleaning the top of the engine head, and getting rid of more trash/hoses/ lines

there is no much science in removing the EVAP box.  I got a resistor from Smart Moto, so i took out the solenoid.  but you can keep the solenoid, if you do not have the resistor, so there is no error code on the dashboard.  after taking the ugly box off, you just need to cap the throttle body (one single rubber cap), and fit a hose to the vent nipple on the left side of the tank.

it is difficult to see, as it is in front of the tank, under the dashboard.  yes, it is Evaporation Emission Control Box.  it is supposed to take in the gas vapour from the tank.  you can reach it by hand, or see it looking from the bottom of the bike.
