After this post it's a shame that in the old and polluted Europe we don't have this useful device onboard. I'll complain to Ducati's management.
Well done Mr Wildbill.

Europe has a mega-city congestion issue with emissions. America has a corrupted legislative branch issue when it comes to emmision laws.

Very good wildbill. I will add a little to it. Using a small blade screwdriver I decoupled the hose clamps on the carbon canister and removed the hoses. I didn't want to cut them should I need to reinstall in the future. I also removed the hoses from the throttle body. You can buy a box of rubber caps from Autozone for about $3 to plug the nipples. The vertical cylinder throttle body nipple is a bit of a reach. I use one of those long reach fishhook removal pliers to remove the vac hose and install the cap. I then put everything in a zip lock plastic bag to keep it clean. I'll get some pictures of the pliers and plugs along with how I reached it.

Call me lazy...I did the quick and easy. I threw the canister out along with the other 2 that I had saved, "just in case" from my 2008 MTS 1100S and my 2010 MTS 1200S.

I do agree that capping the TB nipples, or even replacing them with small bolts makes for a "cleaner" end result.

No problem, it's the engineer in me, I drive my wife crazy sometimes. Plus I never know what the state of Washington might pull down the road when it comes to emissions. I had already removed the system so this is a reenactment.

The tool


Clamp removal


Horizontal port


Vertical port- I found it easier to remove the small plastic cover first. Then stick the pliers in under the large tube to access the clamp. Then installing the plug by going in over the top of the tube. Once the plug is part way on, I used a large blade screwdriver to push it on all the way.

Is the canister removal intended to solve the problem of the engine not starting due to fuel tank overflow? Also, could I solve the problem by disconnecting the tank overflow hose at the canister, extending and routing tank overflow hose to the bottom of the bike, and leaving the canister and other canister hoses intact?

I don't see any reason why that wouldn't work, but you may as well just take the ugly bugger off while your there.

I asked my dealer to remove this when I took the bike in for its first service, they charged me $35
