    I have a 2000 V-Star 1100 Classic that has Cobra pipes, a hypercharger, and has been re-jetted. What would be the benefit, if any, of removing the AIS? If there is a real benefit of removing this system, does anyone have a guide on how to do it? Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

    When i removed the AIS on my 2007 classic. it seemed to sound better and all the exhaust popping stopped.
    I used spent .45 acp shell casings to plug the holes, just added to the cool factor.

    Thanks alot for the responses guys. I like the idea of the spent .45 casings to plug the holes. Sound like it would definately add to the cool factor of the bike.

    It's the most common thing used to plug those holes....

    I think it looks better without the air lines. I just bought some plugs off ebay.

    I removed mine and didn't notice any difference. If you don't get the holes sealed completely, you will get some whistling (I didn't have this problem, but others have).

    I plugged the holes with a bolt to make it reversible.

    I have a 2005 1100 Classic. I removed my AIS last spring when I did a lot of work on the bike including changing out my pipes for the Cobra Speedster Slashdowns. I plugged the holes from the AIS removal with some billet plugs I purchased from Night Sky Customs. Just tried to get a link, but can't seem to connect to their site anymore. Anybody know if they are still around.

    It doesn't look like Night Sky is still operating.

    I just found a post on facebook from February that said on his e-bay store he had a notice that he was still on vacation, but the notice was dated back in November.

    Too bad, he had a nice AIS kit.

    I've heard that too einzdan. It's a bummer...that was a great product. I guess it's back to spent .45 shell casings.

    Go sloneservices.com/SilverBack/Other-Stuff/AIS%20Removal.pdf and you'll find a complete article about removal. towards the end they show a picture using a bolt instead of a shell casing.

    Hope that helps....

    Are you putting it in the elbow in the cylinder head? That is where the casing goes.
