Just got a 2005 WR450, need AIS info...

My question is how do I know if I already have an AIS removal kit installed?
the bike was traded in at a dealer that does not carry Yamaha, so they do not know. Anyone have a before and after pic of the AIS removal kit?

If you don't have the factory Owner's Service Manual (P/N LIT-11626-18-49) for this bike, get it - it is very good, and you will need it...trust me on this. This is a great bike, but it does require some regular maintenance - it's not difficult by any means if you have the manual.

After removing all the junk, thread the steel hose fitting at the exhaust head pipe with an 1/8" pipe tape. Then tread a shoulderless pipe plug in. I use some red loctite as I know I will never reinstall the AIS. Us a vacum plug on the other end and air box. Good luck.
