I removed the ones on my bike with my friend its not that hard and definitely worth it, having the full exhaust you should get the pc3 and get a map for that exhaust.
awesome thanks for the link...what kind of difference did you see personally?

I get better gas mileage out of mine too.

Removing the flies is the easiest and cheapest way to unlock 20 low end HP.

Calvin you may notice that your bike feels tame on the low end. Like a bike with this much motor and low end feels sluggish. Take the flies out put in the PCIII with a good tune and it'll snap your neck back.

No doubt.

Use a soldering iron and touch it to the screw for 30--60 secs or use a torch and heat the shiat out of the tip of the screwdriver.
