I removed the charcoal canister and have some issues. I left the breather hose unplugged. I plugged the fuel hose that ran from to the charcoal canister and left the hose that ran from the top of the canister, towards the front of the engine open.
I ran the bike for about 50 miles when I filled the tank and had a pressure build up that prompted the fuel to overflow onto the tank!
A friend of mine removed the vacuum plug from the fuel hose (that lead to the canister from the tank) and the pressure was relieved. Now the fuel hose remain unplugged and dangles near the breather hose. My problem now is that I leak fuel when I fill up.
If I re-plug the fuel hose will the pressure return and build up in the tank?

You need to leave the fuel hose unplugged. This is an overflow hose and will occasionally leak fuel. I have routed mine to the back of my bike and zip tied it to the frame...you don't want it leaking fuel on your hot engine.

Don't over fill your tank! Yes it needs to be open. It shouldn't leak much, unless you over fill your tank.
