I just removed the charcoal emissions can from my S2R. Plugged the throttle bodies with some ~6mm M5 socket head hex bolts (with RTV by the head and Loctite on the end of the thread -- belt and suspenders...and duct tape), and luckily have no issues with my idle (it's the same as before).

However, for the time being I only took the canister off of its bracket, and left the bracket on the bike. Why? Well, the bracket is attached to bike via two crankcase screws, and I don't want to go unscrewing crankcase screws without knowing the proper torque to screw them back in at. Could someone with a service manual for an S2R check those torque figures for me? Since anyone answering this question either has an S2R or its service manual, I won't explain exactly which 2 bolts I am referring to -- it's easier seen than explained.

I'm guessing I'm also going to have to squeeze a couple of washers in there too.

Thanks in advance for the help. And ride safe.

just remove them, it's no big deal as the case cover's on there pretty good, even without any bolts on there at all. you can take those 2 off without any concerns

torque's very light, I don't have my books on me here at work, but I just go as tight as i can by hand and even then, it's probably a little too much.

As I recall those nuts dont actually go through the cover and into the case (are they different colored). But if you are that worried and have a torque wrench, throw it on the nuts and either measure when the nut begins to tighten or loosen. You'll be +/- a few ft/lb but close enough.
