Is it worth it?

Wondering if removing the Kawasaki Kleen system in my 2000 ZX-12R is worth the trouble it takes to get rid of it............

Currently have an Akro full system, PC3usb and BMC filters

I never did that mod but have heard mixed results on this site about it. I think for the most part the popping noises on deacceleration are reduced when this mod is done because it's not throwing that unburnt air back through the system. You might pick up one or two ponies but doing it but that's about it.

Don't forget you get rid of some CRAP that just gets in the way of things .

My muzzy piped 12 still pops ridiculously when I roll off from the midrange or top end....only if I roll off VERY SLOWLY will it either pop pop pop minimally or not at all....otherwise its machine gun sound-ish when passing other cages

i took it off and it made my muzzy syndrome worse while putting around 2000 to 2600 rpms. taking it off richened up the bike and i could not get it leaner. so i put it back on. what i found out with my dobeck box is if i have it too rich i get the pop.if i have it correct it runs like stock and no pop unless i lug it up a hill and then snap closed it will pop a little. i figure a 300 $ power commander to be able to tune my bike with the kleen off is not worth removeing it.the dobeck is just fine for what it is and i can tune it with a screwdriver i always have.
