I am installing the vacuum style cruise control on a 2012 DL650.

The older VStroms had an extra nipple on the throttle bodies, but the newer machines don't.

Two vacuum connections to each body,
1) separate connection to individual IAP sensors (# 3 in schematic)
2) joined connections to the EVAP purge valve (# 8 in schematic)

I'm hesitant to tee off of either IAP sensor hose. I think that might mess up the engine computer and not be enough vacuum from one throttle body.

Is there any reason I cannot tee off the EVAP line between the purge valve and the throttle bodies? I have marked on the attached page on where I am thinking of.

Thanks for the help.

I would try teeing off both IAP sensor hoses and take the two resultant hoses to another tee to feed the vacuum canister. The evap hoses don't pull enough vacuum. Teeing off both intakes on the Wee worked fine but using the evap hose didn't work at all.
