AIS is the plumbing from the exhaust back to the carb to meet Kaliforniastan CARB rules.
Just buy the TT store plugs and eliminate the plumbing. :banghead:

It put fresh air into the exhaust to dilute it and reduce emissions....basically an EPA-mandated kluge.

Really, the only thing you need to know aqbout the AIS is .....get rid of it!! Go see your dealer if you have a good one. Yamaha makes a removal kit and jet kit, it's in their race manual. It cost me $100 for both installed and it made a world of difference. Well worth it.

It is on every 05-06 WR450, not just the models destined for CA. Might even be on the new WR250??

AIS or air injection system is a system used to inject air into the exhaust to finish burning any unburnt fuel, thus, reducing hydrocarbons which is unburnt fuel. The air isn't pumped in, but the pulse or low pressure from the exhaust draws it in, this is called the "pulse air" type, otherwise an actual pump would be required. There is a reed valve to keep pressure negative and air only flowing into the exhaust, not the other way. This can make for some nasty backfire on decel, as decel dumps lots of unburnt fuel into the exhaust. The popping is this fuel igniting or burning. In automotive, a "diverter" vale is used to switch air from the exhaust and into the air cleaner on decel to prevent this popping, but I'm sure they didn't want to get too stupid on the WR, just enough garbage to make it Kally green I suspect. :banghead:

I bet you will in the next couple of years. Not that I am a fan of it. But Cal seems to set the bar.

Are there performance losses or harmful effects associated with AIS? Or is it just a backfiring thing? Does it make it harder to jet?

If i were to get an '06 and didn't mind the backfiring, could i leave the AIS in without crippling the bike?

I think it makes it easier to jet and tune the carb due to the fact that all that crap is out of the way. I removed mine and don't regret it. But I have researched the performance issue and found the most popular opinion to be, their is no affect. I can't tell on mine. I have a terrible butt dyno.

No effect on performance....it simply pumps fresh air into the exhaust...prob'ly not even that heavy.
