KTM 1090 Adventure/R Evap/Charcoal Canister Removal

The video shows the procedure being performed on a KTM 1290 but the procedure is the same for the 1090 Adventure R








You can get the dongle from Rottweiler at the link below

I've been in for my first service today and mentioned this to the dealers, they just laughed and said "you just unplug the canister and remove it"

As to the claims that you need dongle or blanking plugs, they were equally bemused and explained it's only the vent from the petrol tank "you know like that piece of rubber tubing that every dirt bike used to have that just vents to the atmosphere".

As Rottweilers website talks of a vacuum line to the inlet tract, i'm guessing the system might be a bit different on North American to EU models?

So I shall be taking a look at mine later and shall report back!

I will be interested to know as well Tony. Mine goes in for its first service in a couple of weeks and the canister removal is No.1 after that is complete.

Hey, Ive looked at this forum and felt I needed to join for this...

I have a 1090 and I just pulled the canister off (takes up room). I have had no issue thus far and I did this a week after purchase. I now have 3800 km and have had no issues at all.

If you are dubious, unscrew and pull it out - if it doesn't work, plug it back in.

I am in AUS if that makes a difference.

I have read a little bit about this mod, but other than creating room for additional storage under the seat is there really any benefit? If I were to remove canister, add the wings exhaust and then dyno test and tune, would this then be a noticeable mod performance?

Reason I ask is I very familiar with deleting diesel trucks and re-tuning, which does make a difference in performance and longevity of motor.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but haven't really been able to determine much with what I have read.

Removed mine two weeks ago, stuck a fuel cap breather in the tank pipe and blocked the other with an M8 bolt.

No issues, no engine light but now I can store the toolkit, a disc lock and a first aid kit under the seat.

If there is anyplace in the world where the charcoal canister could prove problematic itís California. However, I took mine out and didnít use a dongle or remove the lines or block one end off with a T8 bolt without any effect. No warning lights, no changes in how it runs. Iíve been commuting on it all week without any changes at all.
