so from my other thread, you guys instructed me to get rid of the AIS system on my 01 * 1600. I did my searching, and from what i can see, you plug the vacuum line, and take your two hoses that come and go from the cylinders and go as follows: where one port from each cylinder to the AIS, you take the hoses loose and have one hose go make a loop to the ais, and then on the tubes on the cylinder, you close those together with the hose, making a loop? there was a drawing i saw with a green hose and a yellow hose, and that is what i did. but i also read where some guys leave everything hooked up the stock way, and just remove and plug the vacuum line. which way is correct? i attached the drawing that i am talking about.

If you are in a state that inspects motorcycles then I would change it like the photo. But if the state doesn't do inspections then I'd take it out all together . Don't know about plugging the vac-line:confused:

well, i did it like the picture, and went on a 100+ mile ride yesterday and it rode great. No more popping on decel, all was well. I will do a full delete in the near future.

Instead of connecting the two lines from the cylinders, can they just be plugged?:unsure:

That's a common thing to do. The 1600 has a round hole that apparently a .45 casing works quite well in. The 1700 is a bit different. Barron's makes a block off kit. I've got one but haven't gotten around to putting it on yet.

I got the one for the 650 awhile ago. Worked great, as I live in Canada there isn't alot of 45acp brass sitting around.

I found out that 1/2" PEX pipe plugs (plastic) fit perfectly in the hose. This is just a temporary delete until I can purchase kit. Seems to work fine, and being that I haa an abundance of them from plumbing project, seemed appropriate.

I put the Baron's on my 08, there is no vacuum line it is electrically operated. I never bothered removing it on the 01 didn't see the need, and I liked the way it sounded on decel.
