HOW TO: 3rd Gen AIS Removal / Block Off Plates install

HOW TO: 3rd Gen AIS Removal / Block Off Plates install

This how-to assumes you have some experience working with your bike, which includes taking the seat/tank/airbox off so that you have access to the AIS system.

Step 1
Remove seat

Step 2
Remove tank

Step 3
Remove airbox

Step 4
On the picture below:
  1. Remove ALL YELLOW PARTS
  2. You can either plug the HOSE (RED LINE), or just plug the tip with a hose plug/vacuum plug.
  3. Leave the HOSE (BLUE LINE) alone and let it vent to air. Or you can use a T-Tap and connect it to the tank's vent hose (GREEN). REMEMBER: The TANK VENT and the BLUE LINE must vent to air.
  4. On the throttle bodies, you can either plug the tips in RED CIRCLES or plug the hoses in BLUE CIRCLES.



Step 5
Remove stock block off plates and put in your aftermarket ones.
What to remove: RED
What to install : BLUE
See pic:


Installed, see pic:


Step 6
Jump the connector with a piece of wire to avoid getting the FI light.
See pics:



Step 7
Plug the air box.
See pics:



Final Steps:
Put everything back together: airbox, tank, seat, etc.
Congrats! You're done!

I'll keep this here in the Performance and Tech section until everything is perfected out.
Then, we can move it to the how-to section.
Suggestions, comments, please :)

Well put together.

This should be alot of help to anyone that hasn't done this mod. before.

I think that the best feedback from a "How To" will be from those who try it for the first time. They will be better at pointing out what might be missing or is difficult to understand.

My Input will be the first Gens did not require a Block off kit and the 3rd Gen shouldn't as well. I would not use a link but point that out right away with picture/s because I would bet many do this Mod to Rid the canister and other hoses ...other than that looks good

what are the pros and cons of block off plates? is it just weight removal and cleaning it up or does it improve performance somehow?

i believe installing the block off plates allows you to tune your bike just that more accurate.

but thats all of the benefits ive heard, other than the weight savings

in the 1st picture, the parts highlited in red...is that the charcoal canister??

BOOM!!! SHAKE AND BAKE
