please help with EVAP system

Dear Friends,could you please advise me on the removal of the evap system and all connecting hoses.The reason for this is i live in england uk and do not require it by law and after spraying and tidying bike i hope to remove evap.After looking at it i believe if i block off evap inlet into carbs i could remove hoses etc.Any help no matter how small will be gratefully recieved,yours kindly God bless and safe travels to all.ps bike is honda vt1100 1994 model from california USA.

Unless you can find a local mechanic that is familiar with THAT model bike AND the removal you want to do........I highly recommend that you NOT mess with it.......if the bike is running good now.

After you remove it, it might NOT run as good.......and then you would have a real mess.

Then again, maybe someone here can give you the information your need.......but **I** would be reluctant to do it without a good reason.

I took mine off of my 1992 (everyone that feels the need to preach about leaving it on please save your breath). I don't have everything completely back together yet so I can't comment on if it has affected anything negatively yet. I removed the canister and all hoses. There are two larger vacuum fittings on the bottom of each carb. I just took a piece of hose and hooked one end to each fitting with a ball bearing in the hose to effectively block off each. There's one smaller vacuum line that I left open with a smaller piece of hose. When I get it running I'll play around with blocking it off to see if it has any negative affect. You'll just need to experiment with it. If you search here enough there are people that have done it but not really much detailed info. Here's a thread with some info:

I just got my bike and I'm doing the same thing. Do you know of a recent post on this? Also does anyone have a picture of the EVAP diagram on the left side cover for a 92 600 or close years
