My 2020 KRX was purchased in Arizona, needless to say I was surprised to see Cal. emissions ( All the extra vent tubing ) when I installed the rollover valve behind the seat.

I am in the same boat. Bought my 2021 KRX smack in the middle of AZ, and it too, is a 50 state version. I believe the 49 state version was only made in 2020, as I have yet to find anyone with a 2021 49 state version.

Wow that’s crazy. Is it for emissions?
Yup. I’m assuming that the big canister under the bar is some sort of charcoal filter for gas vapors. I’m dying to just bypass all that stuff, but not sure how the ECU will react.

My Kawasaki brute force was purchased in Utah. I live in Cali. So when I went to register it at DMV, they asked where is your sticker for Cali? Sure enough, I called Kawasaki and was told all Kawasaki's are 50 state legal. Told DMV that and said I had to have a certificate from Kawi saying so. Called Kawi back, said no problem, and sent an email to DMV on the spot and got registered. I looked into buying a 2021 krx in Missouri for $2000 less because of no problem with register in Cali, but shipping was too high and would only save $700.

I bet the deal in Missouri is still better. The taxes alone are nuts in Cali.

so if the 8th digit in the VIN is a C OR A 3 then it is considered RED sticker or non emissions conforming in California..
there is supposed to be a calif emissions decal in the glove box or maybe on the back fire wall on the krx.
as for the mention of disconnecting or unplugging the evap, it really doesn't have any effect on performance but unplugging it most likely will through a code.

I have the same thing.. go ahead and replace the check valve with a new check valve mod like this (Tanks Inc. VVR-IL Tanks Inc. Remote Rollover Vent Valves | Summit Racing) and it won't build up psi in the fuel tank.. works great no issues.
I have the valve sitting on my bench, but didn’t install it because of all the crap after it.
Since you installed it on yours, you state that it did get rid of the pressure in the tank? Do you know if after your install, if any codes were thrown?

I was doing some reading up on how that emission setup works. Apparently it traps the vapors from the tank, and sends them back to the motor to be burnt off during ignition. What I don’t understand is....

If the factory one way valve is allowing air into the tank (hence the pressure in the tank) and not out, how is that system even able to trap anything?

I just installed the check valve in the same place that I took the old one off zipped tied it down and that's it.. no more psi in the fuel tank, no codes at all, no fumes.. it just works... really didn't concern myself with how it just does!

Ur exactly right,in theory and in real life collecting the fuel vapors and burning them prevents hydrocarbons entering the atmosphere.this machines should actually get better fuel mileage.The epa I’m
Sure is more concerned about those of us that have gutted the catalytic converter. Or removed it all together. Then added a tune to riches it up.I don’t think I’d be all that concerned unless u live in California.Markmy words they will be the first ones to start inspecting these machines for being in compliant w all the factory installed emission components.
