After the thread from PMK I wonder if anyone heard about the ES Eliminator from HEALTECH or even installed it.

Yes, and no respectively
I concluded that more "right wrist" would suffice when trying to relive my SV1000 days, and that the butterfly valve was "usefull" when lugging around tracks at 2-3,000 rpm (necessary backpressure? or just to pass noise emissions?) either way I wouldnt think the valve would be detrimental at those low rpms-its the torque thats useful.
I was tempted to get rid of the valve when trying to extract a better and louder exhaust note, but unless the entire muffler is removed the V2 sounds tame anyway(to me) due to the Catalytic convertor, so its either muffler replacement only for slightly better note and less weight, or full system, Healtech and power commander etc. which from what i,ve seen only gains about 6hp!!

Apparently what I wrote below may not work. https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a-...fly-valve.html There is more complexity than I supposed.




If you put the race header on and undid the cables from the servo motor you might be able to leave the motor in place essentially operating nothing and not get the FI warning. Just a thought. Might save you paying 60 bucks for a 5 buck part.
