Removing the air injection pump.

How do I remove pump or whatever it is on the side of the motor? Where do I find the proper plates to replace the connections into the base of the cylinder and where the pump comes off? Also how far up do I remove the hose going to the air cleaner? Do you remove it and the valve mechanism next to the carburator or leave that canister on?

I bought a kit that had instructions for rerouting the hoses, and included the cover plates. Baha Designs has it (just checked) www.bajadesigns.com/NET/mainframe2.aspx?content=.

There are also complete instructions to do it all yourself on 4strokes.com too but their server has been down for a while. I just didn't want to mess with cutting my own block off plates but the kit is like $29. The whole mess comes off the side and makes the engine much cleaner. The only thing I noticed with the smog gone is no more backfiring (with all the other mods in place).

I assume you're doing all the other mods too. This bike is way lean, runs hot stock and needs to be opened up: snorkel, air filter, carb rejet, aftermarket exhaust or mod the stock exhaust. Gearing helped a lot too 14/47 works for me but it depends upon where you ride. With all the mods you can take off the wings and run at 220 degrees (oil dipstick temp).
