Quick Marble and Coaster question

If a bike has been coastered does it still need to be marbled?
My 2004 has blank off (coasters) attached to each cylinder head. I thought they were factory stock but after looking at my Clymers manual I noticed they must be coasters.

I am assuming no.

No, the marbles go in the hoses that would attach to the valves that get replaced by the coasters. Both do the same thing - cutting off airflow into the exhaust. The marbles are simply a more stock-looking, easier-to-reverse method.

No. Either one does the same thing.

In fact, you cannot marble as the hoses you would have placed the marbles in are no longer there
