Leave them in, no real advantage to having them out.

Leaving them in but properly adjusting them seems to be the most widely accepted method. I can say that after getting them adjusted as closely as possible it did smooth things a bit. All around my Vee is very happy right now- so time to leave it alone..

If you give a Moose a Muff..ler...
Its a Kid thing

Next time I'll put some effort into my username. This one sounds like a toilet Bowl cleaner or Treadmill, or..

Removed mine, after 1000 km on my newly aquired V.....i like it. Done a TBS, & LOVE IT !!! I can now stay at 100 km per hour in OD....without a problem rolling the throttle on, & not the slightest hesitation, or stumble at all. She is barely revving....just coasting. Gotta save on the gas that way....i may have to calculate it some day

i yanked mine and use a powercommander with the accelerator pump function to smooth things out. Much prefer the more agressive feel
