      Are you talking about the screw that captures the edge of the seat half of the needle and seat(float valve)

    What are any of these things and are they necessary?

      If you live where you have emission test, then keep the parts on the bike. the charcoal canister replacement cost $500,00 alone.
      1st Picture is a vent filter for the carb slide diaphragm. 2nd, charcoal canister for fuel venting. 3rd, is the fuel vent roll over valve.

      Top photo is the filter for the upper chamber vent.
      It does not get a hose connected to the other end, even though it looks like it needs something connected to it.
      The rest of your pics, look like parts for the Kalifornia style emission scavenge system.
      There are specific instructions for removing it, but be aware of what you may be getting yourself into. Sometimes reselling the bike, can be a problem if you live in Kalifornia.

      The state of CA doesn't give a shit about that stuff. It just has to be there from the factory. After that do whatever you want. It's just like aftermarket exhaust are supposed to be illegal here too but everybody runs them.

      Check the article in the tech section for AIS removal. That'll help you eliminate all the stuff you're talking about.

    Hey DJ. Some of the parts in your photos can be eliminated, some should not.

    First thing you should do is fill out your profile so we know what you're/we're working with.

      I filled out what I can on my profile, thanks for the suggestion. I'm in the midst of bobbing my star and i just want to get rid of as much as i can while it's all apart.

      They don't do smog checks on motorcycles where im from if that helps too.

      Thanks for the help, i'll inevitably be back here when i find more stuff i cant identify

            Ive done the ais delete i guess there are more parts to the system than i thought.

            If i begin removing more parts to this system what do i do with the vent lines? Route to under the bike? I guess i need to figure out all what inputs my carb needs then eliminate the rest.

            still not sure what these 2 things are:
            The one with an electrical connector is what really concerns me

              2nd picture is the vent line for the oil tank to the engine. Leave that line on there or you'll have a oily mess. It's part of the dry sump oil system.

              1st picture is a solenoid valve and part of the emissions.
              I don't know if unhooking it will send a signal to the ECM causing a code on the dash?

          • #9
            The only thing nearby this vent line fits into is the vent from the carb diaphragm and the bends in it kind of make sense. Is that where this goes?

              Are you talking about the little black thing that has the short hose, and looks like a PCV valve? If so, that's all there is to it. Its the upper chamber vent(it allows air in and out above the diaphragm). There is a small screen inside to keep bugs and crap out, and it remains open. It doesn't connect to anything.

            Ok cool. Ill leave that thing alone...

            where should this be goin?

              Forward vent on the rear head is the Crankcase vent line that goes to the air box. A lot of Roadies vent this to a vent filter. If you run the vent line up to the neck, and then back down, it helps keep oil from collecting at the end of the vent hose.

            The vent hose from the rear valve cover originally plugs into the back of the intake filter box, but can dump excess oil and fumes into the intake. Most folks re route it to it’s own filter either under the tank or under the bike and plug the hole left in the intake box.

            The vent hose from the fuel tank connects to the two roll over valves which prevent a fuel spill in a crash.

              Doc,

              In post #3.3 you said, "Check the article in the tech section for AIS removal. That'll help you eliminate all the stuff you're talking about". I looked in the tech section under AIS and perused all the tech articles and didn't see anything about AIS removal (unless i missed it). I'm planning on doing the AIS removal and would like to check out any info on that if you know where it's at. Thanks

                Just google "2012 road star AIS removal. There is a very good YouTube on the subject.

              The ais removal is super easy. Remove the pump, remove whats connected to it, plug the holes left behind.

              removing the rest of these emissions control systems is a little bit more involved but also easy since everyone is helping out!

                On a non Kalifornia model, it a breeze. You just have a couple of extra pieces to remove, as well as capping a port on the carb, IIRC.
                The carb has a single bowl drain nipple on the non Kali models. If any of the emissions stuff gets connected to the carb, remove it and cap the port. There is a bowl vent on the upper left corner, that has a nipple pressed in and went to the back of the air intake on non Kali bikes, but is probably incorporated into the emmisions harness on your bike. That needs to remain open. Many of us buy a longer hose, and route it below the bike. Unlike the Crankcase vent line, the bowl vent won’t need a filter.

              Anyone know the part number or how I can find the part number for the retaining screw that holds the needle valve assy in place??

                  I have a 2012 model (FI), removed the pump and pipes to cyclindars but am wondering about the fitting that is on the intake between the two cyclindars, it connects to an electronic sensor, not any of the AIS stuff. I will post pics shortly. This is relating to the AIS removal.

                    Should I block off the fitting in the intake? Again, relating to the AIS removal.

                      No. The AIS on the FI models is electrically controlled unlike the vacuum control on the carbureted models. That hose likely connects to a sensor.
