My first reason is philosophical. It's GARBAGE that doesn't belong there. Removing it will also get rid of a lot of excess weight and a ridiculous amount of clutter. Like I've said before, if you remove both the PAIR system and EVAP system, it is enough GARBAGE to fill a 5 gallon bucket. Do you really want that CRAP on your bike? If it were a new bike, I could see leaving it there till the warranty expired (but still disabling it), then getting rid of it. You can disable the PAIR system simply by removing the huge ugly hoses from the reed valve covers, plugging them with marbles, and putting the hoses back. You can disable the EVAP system by removing both hoses at the rear of the gas tank, and removing the guts from the gas cap. But you're still hauling around 5 gallons of EPA GARBAGE. Made me feel real good getting rid of it. I have been fighting the EPA since 1975. They are the biggest enemy of any bike or car enthusiast.
