I would remove it (you could do the mod instead: Quickest and Easiest Kleen Air Mod in History, but block off plates is cleaner). It's not difficult either way. Everything is under the fuel tank and air box (You don't even need to completely remove the fuel tank. See the first part of my video for how to hold to fuel tank up here:So in other words: ECU flash only disables CE light and producing an error code, should I remove the valve physically.
Well, I guess, block of plates are way to go then. Can anyone chime in, how difficult is to access and remove the entire PAIR system ? I have the 2019 ZX6R version
Block them. Unburnt fuel is a bitch. Mine still occasionally does it and scares the fuck out of me.Hi there,
Is it enough to disable the PAIR valve with ECU flash, or does it have to be physically blocked off (with plates) to disable those annoying deceleration popping ?
Thanks in advance!
Hey Strider did you have the M4 GP Slip on from the beginning? Stock ECU and reached 70k miles with just normal maintenance from the service manual. I just picked up a like new 2016 zx6r that came with an M4 GP Slip on and disconnected servo cables. No CEL. Only had 800 miles on the bike. The power is enough for me as it is, main thing I am concerned about is it running lean but the cat is still in the header. I’d like to reach high mileage as well.I have the cat still in there and an M4 GP slipnon and haven't seen any issues at all (~70,000 miles on the bike now, and I got it brand new. The block off plates have been on there for probably 50,000 or more of those miles.).
Edit: Found this article that says the current catalytic converters actually require a richer mixture than the older styles used pre 1981: Catalytic converter - Wikipedia
And, according to this, running richer actually protects the catalytic converter: Does running an engine rich protect the catalytic converter? - Quora
This is due to more fuel in the mixture making things run cooler.
