So, my vacation is over and I'm back in the same state as my Duc. True to my word, my first order of business was the removal of my charcoal canister. I did it using the fantastic write up done by AntiHero on the 1199 forums: How To: Charcoal Canister Removal - Ducati 1199 Forum
However, I modified it a little. Anyone who's been under the fairings on a Panigale may have noticed the vent line placement. Unlike most bikes which have two rubber hoses just sort of loosely dangling underneath, the Pani has the hoses for coolant overflow and fuel tank venting going to ports in the lower fairing. Since this is the case, I didn't want to extend the fuel tank vent line, since there's really no place for it to go. I also didn't want it going closer to the exhaust since there is fuel vapors coming out of it. Instead I did this:
I cut the fuel overflow vent line and inserted a T fitting. The line coming in from the left is the fuel vent line that I removed from the canister. Behind those lines you can see the line going towards the engine (the one blocked with the screw). This way I can use the existing routing of the fuel vent line. Probably could have cleaned it up a little better, but there's just air/vapor going through.
Additionally, taking the fairings off the Pani are not as hard as I thought and were MUCH easier than on my CBR. I didn't break anything (unlike on my CBR) taking the side fairing off the first time. About halfway through I started searching for how-to videos of the removal to make sure I was doing it right, and struck out. If I take them off again, I will take some pics and do a step by step how-to. In the meantime, if anyone is really struggling with side fairings, just ask. End result, the bike started right up! If I have any further starting issues, I'll report it ASAP, but I think my problems are over!
