What’s this?

Hey all, a quick questions for those who are far more mechanically savvy than me…. Can anyone tell me what the cylinder in the photos is? And also should there be a rubber pipe hanging down that is only connected at one end? A breather possibly? Anyway, any knowledge you guys and gals could impart would be appreciated.

Maybe the fuel evaporator canister? I think some forum members have removed it from their bikes and provided directions on plugging or capping off hoses or barbed connection points.

I could see removing the CANISTER if it was right out in the open..... i.e. DUCATI Sport Classic - definitely worth removing.. R18 models.. not so much..Screenshot_20230331-102215.png
