I've been considering one of these bikes. If I get one, where can I install my power distribution block, alarm system, and other electrical accessories that I need to install?

Not sure about how the EVAP system is setup on the 1000's, but removing the EVAP system on any bike is very easy to do, and they are all basically the same setup. You do need to run the vent hose from the gas tank to the bottom of the bike along with the over flow hose from the gas tank, and on the PAIR / EVAP system removal kit I make and sell for Suzuki 1250 S/SA/FA models, I supply a 3-way tee fitting for connecting the two hoses together so that they can both run down to underneath the bike with the original overflow hose.

You also have to cap off the ports on the throttle bodies where the hoses attach to from the EVAP that allows the fuel fumes from the charcoal canister to be drawn back into the engine to be burned. On the 1250's the solenoid valve that opens to allow the fumes to go back into the throttle bodies is controlled by the ECM.

This winter I'm going to remove the gas tank and start work on removing the PAIR system from my 2018 by making up block off plates for the reed valves and making up a resistor that will replace the load from the solenoid valve that opens up to let the fresh air from the air box into the exhaust ports. On the 1250's if you don't connect a resistor to the bikes electrical system to fake it into thinking that the valve is still connected, you will get an FI warning light. I'm hoping that the resistor I make up for the kit I sell for the 1250's will also work on my 2018, as well as the reed valve block off plates, and if not I'll have map out the shape of the reed valve covers and machine up some new ones.

Here's a picture of the PAIR / EVAP system I designed, make and sell for the 1250's.

Picked up my new bike. My dealer is great, I told him about EVAP box and he removed it, no problem at all. It was 10 minutes job. No need to lift the tank. We just unscrewed right side long plastic, without removing it we moved it away a bit, disconnected the hose that runs from the tank, but didn't removed it from the tank. The hose has a lot of connections along the bike so we just disconnected the one that was closest to the tank. Using the existing hose connector we put new hose and run it to the bottom of the bike, right side again, beside one existing hose that is there already. As for the other hose, again the same story but this one is done on the left side of the bike. We again disconnected the connector closest to the air box we could find, plugged it with one bolt and put the clamp arround the hose so there is no air leak. And now I have my space under the seat again.

Just wondering if you could just remove the box itself and join the hoses?

Removing the box

Just wondering if you could just remove the box itself and join the hoses if the venting is not done at the box? Cheers.

You can remove just the box but can not simply join the hoses because you'd have vacuum leak from airbox through the hoses into the tank. Removing hoses is so easy. Why having hoses under the seat if it takes just 10 minutes to take them off? Plug one of them and buy a foot of any kind of hose (same size as removed one) and reroute the other one bellow the tank.

Thanks bosnjo, Makes sense. I will look into that, sure is a pain loosing that storage area. It was good for storing the mini compressor and puncture repair gear etc. cheers.
