I think it is a vapor recovery canister and can be removed. However, there is at least one vacuum line attached to it so make sure it is is plugged or your bike will run like shit if it is left un-plugged. Likewise, it is just balast and doesn't detract from performance, but get rid of the damn thing. It is unsightly.

You can remove it. The longer line is the vacuum. Tie up the plug from the relay to keep it from bouncing around, and start the bike. Two lines are the fuel overflow, so don't plug them. With the bike running crimp the longest tube to make sure you got it. If the bike runs better that's the one. Plug it with a bolt. If you want to do it right, remove the tank and plug it at the T where it comes off the air box.
