I don't know if all the 2008+ models are California type, but I have heard of California models being encountered as far east as Philadelphia, so at least they are widespread.
The cannister is under the side panel, just where the muffler would be if it were on the right side.
There's also a small cannister/vacuum device on the frame below the battery. It has hoses running back to the cannister, up to the gas tank, and forward to the carb vacuum port.
To remove the whole mess, put a vacuum cap on the carb port when you remove that hose, cap the tank vent that goes to the small canister, and cap the large hose that goes into the air box (near the battery), then remove all the bits.
Let me know if you need more specifics.
