De-California my bike please

I got the carbon filter off now what about the right side "air pump". How does this all play a part in it also.

This the left side as I read and see it did that. How about the right side? I can't upload the picture I am talking about. But part of this goes to the endine head.

The AIS on the 08+. I believe you just put a blocking plate on it.

As SkiBumBrian says, it is the Air Injection System. It is designed to pump air into the exhaust to keep the catalytic converter happy. It does no harm and may keep the cat material from disintegrating.

If you want to remove it, just pull it all off and use a cap to block off the vacuum port at the carb.

Then install the blanking plate SBB was talking about, like this:

Does it have to be removed? I also did the 22cent mod today.

No, it does not. It is fairly passive - takes no power. It's vacuum operated. It doesn't interact with the carburetor at all. Just feeds air into the exhaust.

However, if you have an aftermarket exhaust then it's like your appendix. Take it out and lose some weight.

Stock exhaust so thinking I might leave it. I do not like loud exhaust.
