Removing Snorkel

Hey guys, I've been looking into removing the snorkel on my 08 250R. I've been looking around and it seems some people say that you can just take it out and enjoy the benefits while others say that you have to readjust the needles in the carbs for it to be useful at all.

I will probably end up rejetting the carbs next oil change, but until then, I really don't want to take my bike apart that much and do that much too it. So what do you guys think, can I take the snorkel off without the fear of hurting my bike until I shim/rejet my carbs? I understand the gains maybe extremely minimal, but I just want to make sure I'm, at least, not harming the bike.

I also found that to be quite encouraging to do it.

Just hold out until your rejet/shim. Gains are minimal and not worth the damage. Mods vary from one bike to another and being it carbs it's very picky when temperatures change. Only way you know if it's hurting you is you actually dyno or run a wide band O2 sensor to see if you're running lean up top.
