Follow the small hose back from the vacuum solenoid to the throttle bodies. If it connects directly to the throttle body put a cap on the opening on the throttle body. If it connects to a 4 tip t-connector then get a 3 tip one and replace it.

Mac, I'm assuming this is ok to remove on a 2011 Sprint GT as well? I live in Canada however own a US bike which has the CC system.

Wink Awwww heck!

When I was younger, I'd remove "unnecessary" items from vehicles as I see fit. Sometimes it was "beneficial" (in my eyes) and sometimes it made zero difference. This is one of those times (for me,) where it made no sense to mess with a bike's gizzard.

Yeah it makes no difference in performance it's just a vapor catch bottle. However motorcycle charcoal canisters are notorious for plugging which plugs off the fuel tank vent and then several things can happen. The least of them is the bike stalls from lack of fuel pressure. The worse items are collapsed fuel tank or a burned up fuel pump from pumping against a negative pressure. They're just a problem and should just be taken off on bikes. On cars there are warning sensors to tell you there is an issue and on the newest pressure and venting testing pumps. Bikes don't have this and the canisters are much smaller. Also since bikes can tip over and the tanks are often overfilled gas gets into the canister which causes them to start breaking down.

I put on a touratech skid plate and I had remove the charoal canister. I traced the hose to the throttl body. I put a bolt and a tyrap wrap on at low point of where canister lived. Should I cap it up higher? I noticed a elec conn and either a check valve or something. Should I cap it there. and will this make the engine run lean?This is on a 2012 Triumph tiger 800

The part with the electrical connector is the vacuum solenoid that controls when the vent is open to prevent air from entering the system at the incorrect time causing running issues. What you did was fine. Just keep in mind these hoses will eventually rot or your plug may come out. The best solution is to remove it altogether and cap the throttle bodies.

The only way you could cause any change in the way the bike runs by removing any part of this system would be if you did not cap it. So no worries about fuel mixture or any other running changes as long as it's all capped.

One more thing be sure that you don't cap the line that comes from the fuel tank. Doing so will prevent the tank from venting causing the fuel pump to draw a vacuum in the fuel tank making the pump run hard possibly damaging it and in the worst case scenario I've seen fuel takes that were partially sucked in (dented) from the vacuum.
