I don't think silicone is compatible with gas, but it does have a high temp rating
if u simply wanted a "T", McMaster sells a 6 mm acetate one with barbed ends that is made for use with gasoline. I have that one but a wye connector seems to fit nicer when connecting to the longer gas vent line--otherwise the shorter gas line (the one that would've gone into the charcoal canister) has to bend horizontally to fit into the "T". that's why I prefer not to use that and am trying to fit a wye. a wye would allow the shorter line to go straight down. but I may be stuck using the T since I can't even find a gasoline rated 1/4" wye, let alone 6 mm

McMaster has a stainless wye, but it is 3/16" - I'll make the brass tee work, I don't like plastic fittings

Nope. Didn't for me at least.

I removed mine two days ago after having a hot start issue, rode it to work and around town for a bit with no issues. Then got to the track this morning and had a light by the 3rd corner. Seems to run just fine but the only thing that has changed is the canister.

Maybe you didn't plug the vacuum line from the airbox so that it was airtight. I could see a vacuum leak causing issues.

Just took my '14 1199 to the dealer today to get the Oil Service light reset and asked about the hot hard starting issue. I mentioned this thread about removing the charcoal canister. Their Ducati Master tech said that completely removing it isn't necessary.

He said to leave it in but remove and plug up the vacuum line to the throttle bodies.

He said if you remove the whole canister, you could see fuel occasionally leak from the T-d hose line. Which would result in a garage that smells like gasoline. So, he reset my service light and plugged the vacuum line for me all for $30.

I plan on a nice long ride tomorrow and it will be in the upper 90's here in NC. Be interesting to see if the hard start issue really is gone.

I will let you all know tomorrow night.

Well, for those of you who have NOT removed your charcoal canister yet, you may not need to.

Yesterday, I had the vacuum line running from the charcoal canister to the throttlebody assembly removed from the charcoal canister and plugged up. Left the tank vent attached and the canister in place.

I stopped 2 times during a 120 mile ride today while it was 95 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Both times, my engine temp was reading 202 degrees. I stopped. Got a drink. Sat for about 10 min. Then hopped on the 1199 and she fired right up

As recently as 1 week ago, I took the same ride and when I went to start her while this hot. It took about 6 tries and I had to open the throttle up a little. NOT today. Not a single problem. She started on the first stab of the button both times.

Just wanted to let you all know this.
