I had some about 3 years ago, bought new, didn't like, sold at a pretty good loss. The "charcoal canister" is only on California models. It is part of the CA evap system. I had already completely removed that entire mess, along with the complete air injection system before getting the pipes. If you remove the right sidecover and look down in there just in front of the swingarm, if it has one, you can't miss it. It's a big rectangular plastic box with a smaller cylindrical plastic thing attached to the side of it, and a zillion hoses attached to it. It serves no purpose other than to make the bike run badly when you fill the tank all the way up. I don't remember any problems installing the pipes, and they sounded great around town, but I couldn't handle the racket on long trips, even with earplugs. I did have to upjet one size on both the main and pilot jets, for around 1200 feet altitude.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
