Edit. See service manual 10.111. On a Cali bike the hose from the throttle bodies goes to the small purge control valve before the evap canister. The breather hose coming from the fuel tank should connect to the main nipple on the side of the evap canister.
The drain hose from the fuel tank filler cap, if I understand this correctly, should hang freely on the bundle of hoses on the left side of the engine. As it would on a non-Cali bike also.

Thx for responding. 10.111 (pictured below with evap canister) shows a different 4 way connection to the throttle bodies (underneath the throttle bodies). I capped that one off when I pulled the evap canister and purge control valve tubes.
The 4-way connection shown in my original post that I marked with red, is on top of the throttle bodies near the plugs and directly under the airbox. I can't find any reference in the shop manual indicating what it should be attached to...
If anyone knows what this is connected to or happens to pull their airbox off and could take note, it would be much appreciated.
Cap/block the tubes leading to the evap cannister.
The left tube on the tank is a breather. It connects to a one-way valve, and runs parallel to the tank drain line - draining under the bike. The valve tends to get stuck on many bikes stipping venting to the tank. You can remove this valve.
Which port on top of the throttle bodies are you refering to?
Thanks Power-Tripp, I almost capped the tank breather till I thought of the potential vacuum build up. For the tank vent I used an 1/8" fuel filter, (the kind you find in the tank of your weed-eaters).
The extra port on the throttle bodies is located on the top middle. You have the 3 that comes together and leads to the MAP, then 1 extra in the middle, it's just another vacuum port I believe. After looking and some pictures of other throttle bodies (here and eBay) I found that that extra port was capped, so I think they all have it, but only CA bikes with the EVAP system utilizes it.
I took it out last night after loading a tune and she seems to be alright. No CEL, and definitely more responsive. I installed the Jardine RT-1 slip-ons, SAI block offs, and removed the EVAP system.
