I don't see PAIRS blockoff plates in that impressive list of mods

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

Classy mods.

Obsession is a word the lazy use to define the dedicated.

Nice job Glenn! Looks like you also eliminated the rear fender. Add that to your mods. And get rid of the factory sticker on the swing arm.

Welcome aboard.

It's the two hoses coming out of the top of the valve cover... they run to a valve which sits in the triangular shaped area in the frame right above, then there is a hose which runs back to the air box. Remove all hoses and valve, plug air-box nipple and custom cut block-offs for the holes in top of the valve cover out of plate aluminum. You can use one of the hose plenum thingies as a template. Underneath, there are REED valves, 2 per side 4 total. The REED valves can be used to seal your block-offs but you have to remove the #2 Philips screw from each one first as the top of the screw will interfere with a flat fit. Every single screw in my 4 REED valves broke but who cares.. you are just blocking off? Removing the PAIR system will neither help or hurt your engine performance or fuel economy. The PAIR system is simply a way for the manufacturer to get cleaner PPM (parts per million) emissions readings at the tail pipe by injecting fresh air into the exhaust on deceleration. The PAIR system does not actually add to or reduce the actual number of molecules of pollutants, it simply fluffs up what is coming out of the tail pipe. Removing the PAIR system will reduce or eliminate that popping noise you get out the tail pipe on deceleration. In my opinion, the PAIR is dead weight on the bike (mere ounces.. but?) and like you said, clutters up the otherwise cleanliness of the top of the engine. Changing spark plugs is much easier with it gone. Also, you will need shorter screws for your block-off plates.

Or.......you could use a set of my PAIRS plates I've just made available. No need to remove the screws on the reed valves as I've made blind holes on the underside for those.
I also used M6 studs and stainless steel acorn nuts (polished) for a finished look on my bike. Just a thought (or plug)

Where did you buy your Ventura luggage rack/bags?

Do you just have the Pack rack, and no L brackets when you have the bags attached?

Only one North American distributor for these that I can find, and their website makes it seem like the L brackets are required for the sport rack or pack rack. Your bike doesn't appear to need them.

Thanks a million for sharing these pics! You may have saved me a bunch of $$ when I finally decide what to go with regarding luggage for my bike.

OK, so the L brackets are mounted to the frame inside the rear cowl and the only visible part is what sticks up thru the grab rail holes. Is that correct?

Having to get those doubles the price, but this is a system I am definitely considering. I really like having the option of a normal sized rack for everyday use, and the larger pack rack when needed for trips.

Thanks for the info.

that is why i got this system best of both worlds.
basically that is all that sticks out beside the bolts for swapping racks.

I pulled the trigger and ordered a tour kit from RideNow Powersports. $337.50 shipped.

Here's the link if anyone else is interested. That was the best price I could find by about $50.
