OK. This is what I was thinking about.
This may not address your problem - can fuel leak from the evaporative emissions canister to the crankcase? I don't have one.
Some riders are experiencing surging and rough running after filling up their bikes. This can be due to gas sloshing into your evaporative emissions canister, then getting sucked from there directly into the airbox. Here's the solution:
Required: 10mm socket, philips screwdriver, pliers, 6mm bolt, two tie-wraps.
Remove your seat.
10mm wrench, remove the front right-side bolt on the luggage rack. Loosen the left front bolt about 3/4". Loosen the two rear bolts about 1/4 - 1/2".
Bare hands, grab the black side panel joining the fairing, gas tank, and side panel, pop out the two retaining plugs and rotate the panel up about 2". No need to remove the allen bolt at the front of the black side panel.
Philips screwdriver, remove the revealed screw on the front of the right side panel. Push in the release nub on the plastic removable rivet, front underside of the side panel near the rear brake fluid reservoir. Pop out the rivet.
Pull up on the luggage rack so that it clears the top edge of the side panel. Remove the side panel.
Charcoal canister is now visible. Tug on it, the rubber retaining band will pop off the metal clips on the bike. One hose goes up to the gas tank. Remove that from the canister, and use a tie-wrap to secure it to the rear sub-frame right where it bolts to the main frame. The other hose goes up to the air box. Look between the frame and the gas tank, there's a joint in the hose about 5" forward of the rear of the gas tank. Break the hose at the joint, and remove the white plastic joint. Get a 6mm bolt (I used a nylon 6mm x 25mm), use it to plug the hose opening. Use the existing clip to hold the bolt in place. Use a tie-wrap to secure the hose end to the air hose right next to it.
Replace all plastic and bolts.
