Flapper in stock exhaust

Has anyone tried taking out the flapper valve in the mid-pipe? My 929 had the same sort of design with that useless HTEV bs and taking out the valve gave me more low end and didn't have a sudden surge of power when it opened. I saw a picture of the ZX's and thought the same thing. Sure would make sense with the motor really coming to life right at 4K.

Just a thought

Did the search. Well I'm new to Kawasaki and coming from Honda I'm not used to technology that's actually beneficial to performance. My bad

Damn I got to get one of these things.

Yep, just unplug the cables at the servo under the seat and you are good to go.

I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.

met up with a fellow 10 owner tonight with a Akra slip on. He said he liked how mine sounded. He still had his valve working, hes now going home to do the mod. That slip on is really quiet.
