Forgive my ignorance, but do you folks in the UK have the big charcoal canister under the left tank cover? I have read about the strict European emissions standards, but maybe what goes out the tailpipe and what evaporates from the gas tank are two different concerns. Mostly just curious. Like others, I didn't read the manual when I checked my valves, just pulled the gas tank automatically. When I had a Ninja 250, I believe I had to disconnect the radiator, remove the fairing and definitely the gas tank. I love THIS bike's simplicity. And the smoothness of the engine.
