Throttle stop, remove or just trim?

I hacked the crap out of mine. I used a pair of linesman pliars and ended up cutting off 15mm. It works fine and no problems. I have heard of others removing theirs and having no problems. it is unclear to me as well. They say if you remove it you can confuse the throttle positionong sensor. i do not know if that is true or not. The majority trims it.

Also, the stop needs to be there to limit the movement on the slide, hammering against the carb body can't be good.
There's a GOOD REASON why the YZ also has a throttle stop! The WR's is only longer so that it can pass US noise/emissions requirements.
Some other folks have removed and "had no problems", but IMHO that's a cracked slide and rebuild waiting to happen.

I have, however, replaced my carb slide 2x! I'm not sure it was due to the stop being removed, but it would make sense if that was the culprit.

The overall length should be 33mm's and 24mm's when trimmed.
