put 2 and 2 together

You are getting an engine light after you removed something

Where is the failure to understand something happened because of something else?

Its your charcoal filter for your fuel tank. It filters out all the fumes from the gas.

You don't think its as necessary as an aftermarket quad exhaust?

From what is being described, it is a necessary part of the emissions system. I doubt you are going to get the CEL to go out if the emissions system is not working. That is why the CEL is there.

I'm nor specifically familiar with this canister, but I'm going to make the assumption there is an electrical sensor plugged into the cannister that you unplugged to remove the cannister. Is that holds true you might trey this:

1) Use a DVM to measure the resistance between the terminals of the sensor on the cannister
2) Create a jumper with the same resistor value and plug it into the harness you removed from the cannister.

This "could" reasonably fool the ecu into believing the sensor is still there.

I have mine in, I shortened and capped the quads, cant you just cut off the back of the quad tip and cap it and reinstall?

Put the canister back on. You will not get the light to go out without it. Plus, you have violated federal law by removing it.

well i most certainly dont care about federal law, and i bet i most certainly culd get the light to turn off just by using a little resistor series or sorts.

if that doesnt work out ill have to relocate it like jays for sure which was my second option, what did you mount yours to?

i was going to do wut DC is talkin bout which is kinda like whats goin on in the first pic, but what i was in the shop and we were mapping out the piping my dude was layin everything down for the most freeflowing setup haha and that damn filter just got in the way!
