removing the secondary butterflies on drag bike

I have a 2008 zx10r, strip only bike, after looking at different threads, do you guys think removing the secondary butterflies would help at all on a strip only bike. Some of the other threads said it helps more in mid range but not up top. Just wanting to know what you racers think and know. The bike will be running this race season no filter, open header, pcv with custom map, msd launch master, shift light and hopefully pingel electric shift. All info appreciated.

If you can and have the $ send the ECU out to get flashed, they pull abour 4* timing up top so your missing out on some power and faster times!
