The plates will help reduce the decel popping but not eliminate it completely. It does however make perfect sense to replace them since you'll be removing the tank/bodywork anyway.

Do the block off plates. I found the backfiring extremely annoying. You will lose some weight by taking the CA canister off also.

the numbers mean Jack, it's thebefore and after you're interested in, that's all. Ram air doesn't even come into play until you're at jailable speeds, so don't worry about it. haha

The Ram Air is a Joke on our bikes. We are not getting ANY more HP from it at all. There is a large vacume line going to the airbox.

it is IMPOSSIBLE to build a Positive pressure WHILE pulling a vacume. It cannot happen. As well as the crankcase is not designed to handle positive pressure.

The ram air looks cool, period.

Yeah but some people re-route that pipe (Pair or whatever Kawisaki call theirs) and the CC breather for fairly decent h.p gains. So that there's continual flow from the air box, into the crankcase, and then back up to the airbox again. Great h.p, but really oily air filters too. lol

I have read many articles and test on RAM air over the years and have always thought Kawi was the best, especially on the ZX9R and ZX10R but there is no test here, but the real world dyno's and head to heads got my attention. Read this article:

I love my 10.

However I am a big believer in reality.

I have had my airbox off many times.

i have studied it.

I have drank beer with it.

I wanted it to be true, but I just don't think it is.

have you tried drinking beer FROM the air box? I have heard that gives a few more ponies, but it's an AMA secret, so keep it hush hush. Hahaha
