Air is injected into the exhaust system to make the emissions seem cleaner when tested.

It is cleaner comming out, it helps burn up any unused Hc's.

If it is not essential to the vehicle operation ( engine-wise ), I want it gone. :D

Ah... the notorious Suzuki PAIR valve...

It is very easy to get rid of on the other Boulevards (single breather). I haven't looked inside the M109R enough to tell if it even has one. I thought they might have skipped it to make room for the left side air. Remember, there is a cat converter on it already.

A peek inside the shop manual will tell us right away...

Be carefull playing with pair system and or exhaust. Several states are coming down harder on people who make illegal adjustment. If you life in a highly congested area or one of the coastal states that are tighteing up on emission laws, my recomendation would be to replace the entire system with one that meets governmental standards.

When I had the bike apart we took measurements for the block off plates. We sell them for the VTX now.

Most states? Really? Which states are those? Most places don't test bike emmisions, so I don't see how they'd know. BTW, good luck finding any aftermarket exhaust that meets "government standards". No such thing. And if there were, no one would buy it.

Please, bring on the PAIR blockoff plates!

Since, this post made it back to daylight... has anyone been under the tank to see if there is a pair system? I automatically assumed there was, but the catalytic converter has me unsure.

That's what I thought too, but I checked as soon as the shop manual came in and there is a PAIR.

Lamonster, please be sure and post something when you get them made up, I'm betting you'll add them on directline as well.

I have to get a manual.... Changing out my license plate and signals, I took way too much apart :) Only did I see afterwards my mistake.
