Bought my 05 a couple of months ago and have been reviewing the extremely helpful information on this site.
I Installed FMF mufflers and am in the process of re-jetting and thought why not do the SAS removal since the bike was apart? After looking at the threads on this subject and looking at how the system is designed, it seems like plugging the large hose that goes from the reed valves to the valve on the back of the air box would accomplish the same thing without all of the hassle. Others have suggested plugging the individual inlets to the reed valves but it seems to me that I could accomplish the same thing with one plug and all of the components would be there if I had to reconnect it. I just want to stop the airflow into the exhaust ports. I know I would still have all of the clutter but this is not a problem for me. Is there any reason this would not work?
