Its also interesting to see the aversion to emissions control some members have. Taking it off shouldn't hurt a thing. but since I've not yet found that keeping it on hurts anything either, I've just left mine alone so mine is bone stock, emissions-control wise (non-Calif model).
If I had the California model I probably would have removed that much anyway.
So jkwpivot, according to what your own particular viewpoint is towards the hated emissions control stuff, either plan on removing it, or not. Its up to you. Jerry's bike is proof that it runs fine without it. Mine is proof that it runs fine with it. You'll be ok either way.
