secondaries and the 650

There were a few posted about removing the secondaries on the 1000. Did anybody ever find out if removing them on the 650 does any good?

650...Anything more than a handfull is wasted

I'm curious about this also.

I got my Wee-strom (first motorcyle, first motorcycle I've ever been on period) and scared the snot out of myself.

ah, ok cool, i'm gonna try that.
if you remove them, then put them back on if you need maintenance, will the service guys be able to tell they were ever off?

I'm curious too, but I'm also skeptical since the 650 doesn't have the FI problems that the 1k does. The secondary removal seems to be more of a cure to a problem, rather than a performance modification.
