just did the pair valve removal, this is what i found. i have a 04 S the 2 valves were just linked together with pipe and hose. no tee going to a pump or anything else. the large hole in the air cleaner was capped on the back side with a nipple. i bought this bike brand new and no one else has worked on it. i this normal? has anyone else run into this?anyway i completed the removal and ran it down the road about a mile sounded better but stil had some decel pop. anyone that has seen this please PM me with any info. thanks,mike

I would question as to whether it was new, or if someone had not done something to it.

That is not how it comes from the factory.

If the dealership put the pipes on as a sales incentive on the show room floor as a lot do. They probably did disable the system to cut down on the popping as it's hard to impress a customer when the bike sounds like a shotgun while your trying to impress the customer with how good it sounds.
