Did they all come this way? Or just California models? This bike was originally from ohio then went to michigan then back to ohio. Pain in the @$$. Rogue made it look easy lol. 4 hour job.

Was this a California bike?
That looks like the vapor recovery EVAP canister.
In the service manual, the EVAP canistor is to the left of the exhaust pipe (like in the photo)(service manual page 1-38), and the flapper valve vacuum tank to the right of the exhaust pipe (service manual page 1-28).

Originally bought in toledo ohio brand new. Sold to a guy in Detroit area. Then sold to me back in toledo. I noticed the frame says it conforms to california regulations.

Yep tossed that and the solenoid and did the pair mod and new air filters. Switched to rotella t6 and put a new oil filter on. Just waiting for the jb weld to cure before I test it out. Also took off my power commander that went haywire last month. Busy day while it rained
