I pluged the pair valve. My question is: Has anyone ever actually had water or something bad happen as a result of just plugging it?

I have read from "search" that this can happen. I'm just to lazy to order the plates and do the whole program with the reed valves. Is this one of those things that I can not afford to forego.

Ditto to what C_Spike said.
I Helped a friend put his Blanking Plates on the weekend and we got about a half cup of water run out of the hose. Plate install took about 30 min.

A possible concern with going to the plates rather than plugs is the inability to quickly restore the bike to stock condition. If (and that's a big 'if') you ever have to have the bike smog tested or inspected removing pollution control devices would be an issue. For that reason I stick with caps rather than plates. If you have to spend the $2 to replace the caps once a year... no big deal.
