MotoGeo - Jamie Robinson does great reviews and offers understandable comments that are logical. Glad he's as big of a fan of the 959 as I am!

Can't help but notice how many Europeans hate the ugly exhaust they're getting.

For some owners I can see that being one of the first major mods they do.

The Akro "euro spec" exhaust slip-on isn't so bad...

Euro5

Euro6
-2020: Emission demands tighter (particle cleaning included)
CO 1.00 / THC 0.10 / NOx 0.060 / Particles 0.0045*
-2020: 80dB .... yes, 80dB. the 899 will be a king of history.
-2020: demanded OBD to alarm for faulty emissions (lambda light)


It's only getting worse the boys in europe, the strict standards taking out the fun for them. The charcoal canister removal is one of the first mods that I always do upon getting a duc. For those of you who own ducs beofre you should know exactly what I am talking about. It does more bad then good.

The exhaust is just something they have to swallow. I'm just glad we still get to keep the underslung exhaust.

How hard is it to remove the charcoal canister? I've seen it done on a 1299 so I assume its similar on a 959.





VroomVroom, I removed mine when I did my Akra install. By removing the canister it keeps from having hard starts when the bike is hot.
It's super easy, main thing you have to do is plug the hose coming from the throttle bodies. You will have two hoses coming off the charcoal canister, one is from the fuel tank and one is from the throttle bodies. Add an extension piece of hose on the one from the fuel tank and run it out the bottom of the lower fairing. The hose that comes from the throttle bodies is easiest to plug by putting a screw into the end of it and wrapping a small zip tie around it just to make sure it doesn't come out. Another way to do it is by removing the fuel tank and actually putting a bolt into the throttle bodies and removing the hose completly.
