I know the purpose of the charcoal cannister but, do we need it on the gl1800. I have always removed unnecessary emissions devices from all my other bikes without issue however, I have never seen it done on a wing. Would make clutch bleeding easier.

If you know the purpose of it, then why would you ever want to remove it ???

Simply to make it easier for clutch fluid bleeding and just get rid of extra stuff that is not needed or necessary!

Great idea then ... try removing it and then report back. After riding on a hot day, if you still think not having one is a good decision, let us know.

Simply asking a question! I did this on all my other bikes without issue. Has anyone actually done this? Guess I will be the first.

A charcoal canister absorbs gas fumes. I have one in now with a canister disconnected, and one of the owners complaints is gas fumes. The hotter the day, the more full the tank is, the more gas fumes there will be.
