It wasn't too hard to remove the evap stuff. Unfortunately I did not take photos but I see yours is injected, not a carbie so I don't know how much different that is.
As far as the tank vent, I just disconnected it from the carbon can underneath and left it hanging right where it was. I also left the upper carb vent hanging in the same manner. All the other bits just got yanked and vacuum ports capped.
Between the AI and the EVAP stuff, a good amount of hoses and valves went away.

Get off my lawn!

What is the benefit by removing the AI? Would it make the bike hard to start during a cold morning?
