I didn't even thing about doing it that way. I just bought the kit and chucked the AIS. No trouble with it though.

All it does is add air into the exhaust. It doesn't really help with performance but it DID eliminate back fires when getting off the throttle. Oh and it looks cooler now!

Just a follow up. Go with the complete removal. I did it last weekend. 3 beers and a skinned knuckle, it was worth the time and effort. The front of the bike has a nice clean look.

Re:04 Road Star AIS Removal 8 Years, 4 Months ago  
I feel there is the added benefit of increased airflow around and through the engine area and most significantly keeping that carb cooler to prevent gas boil on those friggin superhot days. Removing that garbage just gotta help that.

Re:04 Road Star AIS Removal 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
Wanted to add a quick note on the install of the AIS removal kit on an '08 R*...

The kit I purchased (LA choppers version) had four items in it: 2 block-off flanges, a rubber cap, and a plastic plug.

For the '08 model the only parts it appears you need are the 2 block-off flanges, one for each cylinder. NEITHER of the two plastic parts appear to apply to the '08. If anyone thinks I'm wrong on this I'd appreciate a head's up so I can do a proper install.

In my experience the removal of the AIS on an '08 immediately resolved a backfiring / popping issue introduced by install of aftermarket pipes (Dooley's) and BAK (Baron's).

trhanson YOU ARE CORRECT. You will just be using the 2 block-off plates on your 2008 No Power commanders needed, and no nasty Backfiring, Unless you have an exhaust leak...

Re:04 Road Star AIS Removal 6 Years, 11 Months ago  
I have an 06' Roadie. My kit comes in tomorrow. Can I use the 04' edition of disconnecting the ais? Or do they have something specific for 05'-11's? Thanks.
