Thanks Paul. I think that as far as the block-off plates are concerned, I should be ok, since I will custom make something out of sheet metal that follows the contours of the two reed-valve housings.i'll measure my plates up for you tomorrow
If you are reffering to the evap solenoid then I don't know if your bike has one, I thought it was only on Cali bikes. I will look in the service manual to see. But if you have the evap canister you can remove it, and run the hose, all it does is recirculate gas vapors back to the engine. Save all the parts in case they do require it on some inspection.should the selenoid for this system also be removed?
The purpose of removing the pair system is not to remove weight or gain power.i know i'm new and all - but i do have 1/2 a brain and it just seems like this whole post was a waste of time - 350lb bike and people are shedding 1lb. crazy.
anyway, from the pics it looked really cool, thought it was gonna do something serious... guess i was wrong.
