secondary throttle plates

I was reading on SV Rider forum about removal of the secondary throttle plates for improved performance? Is this a good idea? I was told by an SV guy that the plates are only for noise reduction at the throttle bodies.

1981 Yamaha 650 Special(first ride)
1986 Yahama Fazer 700 FZX(sold in 99)
2005 DL 650( best ride so far)

Don't do that on a 650. The computer controls the secondaries to smooth the power output. Whether it helps on a 1000 is debatable but, in the case of the Vee, the computer uses the secondaries to limit power in conditions that are more dangerous. The 650s smaller size keeps it from being a wheelie monster and and a high speed aerodynamic nightmare. The SV guy is wrong about the noise thing.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Make sure they are adjusted correctly, so don't totally leave them alone.
