Block Off Plates

Hi ok so my bike is still popping on de-acceleration after de-Cat and de-Kleen so will Block off plates stop this...I only made up some block off bolts to fit the original holes...so I'm hoping that its leaking air a little and the proper Block Off’s do the trick...any thoughts anyone

Cheers Dave

I was running standard head pipes with a Yoshi end can and the Cat removed with block off plates in place and my bike still pops a little when decelerating.

I'm currently fitting a full Akrapovic Evo system, Ill also check the tightness of the block off plates and let you know if she still does it.

Damn emission controls!

I don't have block off plates, always been a fan of the "sucker mod" myself.

Sucker mod = plumbing the crankcase vent into the reed valves.

Mine's all done with well sealed ivan's block off plates but still pops and cackles when i shut down the throttle at higher revs. Sounds like my ducati when it shakes the manifolds loose. Pc3 all dyno setup so I don't think I'm ever going to stop it. Must admit I quite like the attention when I come into a village and slow rapidly to well under 30 like a good citizen.

If you're not sure you have a good seal than properly installed block off plates could help. They also look better IMHO.
