    Morning all I’ve been doing a lot of reading regarding the flapper mod in the air intake, but not sure weather to go ahead with it. my bike is stripped at the moment as I’m replacing the complete fairings so thought it would be the ideal time to get rid of it. Which is the best way to go about it remove all the parts and just plug the vacuum tube and do I need to get the Actual flappers out of the air ducts or can they stay in with the other roads removed? cheers in advance.

    Just plug the hose and see if you can feel any difference and therefore whether it's worth taking all the bits out. I ran it like this for a bit and couldn't feel any difference on track so just put it back together next time I was servicing it.

    Flaps will stay in, as they will lay flat. Remove everything else, simple to do when off bike. SIlver solenoids turn and pull out, remove the spring, remove the bottom triangle tank thing. (cut the little mount tab off as you can use this) Tape up the holes. Remove all wiring and crap linked to it. Block the vacuum tube to injectors with screw and cable tie.
    Less crap around bike when doing things later to it. Its just all emissions. Air intake sounds better too

    I done mine a few month ago, hadn't had the the bike long, 2010 model gains for me are taking the fairing off and on, no wires getting in the way. Plus I have more room in the lights department if I want to upgrade to HID's, another thing to put on the list to buy,
