Is $20 for that AIS blockoff kit a little steep? Add in $9 for shipping... Seems like it would be easy enough to fab up the little block-off plates and to pick up the little plug and cap at a hardware store or car parts store... Do most people just fab up their own "kit" for this? Like I'm gonna do... [/emoticons/emotion-4.gif]

Some do, some don't. If you have access to the tools needed to make then plates, there is you answer. If you don't, the 29 bucks all in is the answer.

have know people that have just cut off the tubes from the olds ones and put bullet casings over them. Looked good. I paid $14 for mine, and ordered some other stuff, so the shipping was free. But that was over 2 years ago.

I'm cheap, did my own. Cost way less and I had it done much faster cuz I didn't have to wait on shipping.

Can someone post a link to what the AIS removal is, what does AIS stand for? Some mods were performed to my bike from the previous owner and I'm trying to find out what has and has not been done. Thanks.

I would fab my own.. now that I have done it. I wasn't sure what was involved at the time.

I bought more than 1 kit when I placed my order.. just to soften the shipping costs. I sold the extra kits to members here.

I also made my ais blockoff plates out of metal shims. Just trace and mark the holes from the ais elbows removed from engine. Then cut and grind to size, Drill the holes and install. Thanks Redhorse.

When I did mine I used plates that Churchkey had supplied and then followed Redhorse's instructions on his website to the letter. Great help, and a big thanks to both of you.

You'll pay less to make your own then it will cost to ship it to you. If you don't have any around, get a peice of 1/8" aluminum from a hardware store, take off your AIS and use the flanges on it as templates. Then, reuse the aluminum gaskets that are on the flanges on your new block off plates and bolt them on. Then just cap off the hoses you take loose and you're pretty much done (unless you haven't done a BAK, then you'll have to cap off the airbox). Use Redhorses site for instructions- his are great and very detailed.

Thank you red Horse for your website diagrams. they are the best. i spen three hours yesterday trying to install AIS removal kit. I just saw step by step instructions on your site and i'm sure it will go real smooth from here on. I have PR Racing AIR Kit - so i guess i dont have to use the plug that came in the kit?
THANK YOU!!!
