+1, a bit more involved on some of the other Gens with the aluminum housing and adjustment screws buried near the throttle bodies. This mod is so worth the short bit of time it takes to install and still under $30. I recommend it to all my friends with Kawasakis as well as anyone on this forum who doesn't have one yet.
