Why use AIS block-off plates when you can just cap the elbows? it's the same result. It may look better but you can't see it anyway.

Yea it took 15 minutes to take a grinder to some aluminum I had laying around and made plates. Works great and cant see anything with no left side cover.

Just use the plates, or make your own. It looks better...

This is a good point!! I can't wait to weigh my bike this summer. I have taken off so much crap and brackets its unbelievable. I have like 2 boxes full of usless crap now, not to mention all the hardware and bolts that go with it...

You keep that stuff? I laugh like a crazy person and throw that junk in the trash. I guess I did have to buy another tail light and brake lever but whatever lol

Murphy's law states that "If I throw away any of the required equipment for this bike they will start inspecting bikes in Cali". You see, I keep all this crap for the benefit of all LeftCoast riders. Somebody has to do it.


Oh, and back to the point. I have seen them capped. Works fine for a while. Then, moisture builds up and rusts out the tubes from the inside out. Then they'll leak brown cruck on your engine case and make a bad noise.

I do not want to thear jack but I do have a question on this topic and some have said to make your own plates. I would if I knew the size (thickness, space between bolt holes and size of holes) of them. I would like to make them up before tearing the bike apart as do not have alot of room to work were my bike is stored for the winter.

What would cause the "Moisture" that Bladerunner mentions? Would that be relative humidity or what?

I can tell you what relative humidity is if you don't know ;)
