Emissions question

Hello all, thanks for the help(previous thread), the bike seems to be running great. Is it harmful to run with the Evaporative Emission Control System removed? If not, what to do with lines going to nowhere? Thanks in advance

No, not to the bike anyways.

Plug the nipple which goes on the carburetor. Plug the big elbow which goes into the Clean Side of the air cleaner box. Maybe run a second hose from 'Red' nipple on back of fuel tank to the suspension linkage area, or Cap IT at the back of the tank!

Why? It's a passive system that doesn't harm the engine at all.

My 2008 has all of the emissions system removed by the PO and it runs flawlessly!!
