Remove valves - unscrew a little bolt from the internal plate which i see on first post ?
Probably something is not ok with me but I can't imagine this without internal plate... - in this case seal will be in the lower place in head or not ?  :confused1:

Yes remove the small screws to remove the read valves  then refit Just like in these pics(these still have read valves attached) then refit with the shaped plate on top .
Takes a few mins job done.
The reason to remove the read valves is that if nothing is moving between them the vacuum from the exhaust can snap them off .
All 3 of our gsx1400 run this kits with the same set up .

I just used some instant gasket just a very light amount to seal the plate to the read valve mounting block.
Loctite would do just fine.

Had my PAIRS blocked for 6 or 7 years. Never removed plates etc, just blocked off air intake. Apart from cosmetics, any reason i cant just leave it like that, disabled but bits still in head. Never really thought about b4, doesnt worry me but just wondered why everyone fits modded plates.

I fitted the kit as it just looks neater.
I removed the read valves as someone on the original org had them break off damaging his cylinderhead so 8 removed ours as a precaution (it can't damage anything if it's not fitted)

This mod seems to be within my skill level but I'm conflicted; I like the popping but would love to feel some of that increased smoothness. Is the smoothness really that noticeable? I'd be willing to lose the popping which has smile value (to me) but that extra smoothness sure sounds enticing. Given these bikes have truckloads of power anyway there's no need for more but I'm intrigued by refinements like this.

I' ve not noticed any extra smoothness as a feeling itself, the smoothness is in the sound of the engine not backfiring etc.
