I noticed this second red cap on your picture...

When I completed this mod today, I didn't see/notice that other area you plugged (hence, it didn't get plugged, of course). Is this bad? What is it's purpose? Is it completely necessary that it gets plugged?

It has to have two ports. Where who the air go with only one port? See what Im saying?

Both ports on the solenoid, valve cover port, and port on top of air filter box need to be plugged.

Not really sure... are you saying that the one I circled is the inlet port for the air, and wasn't routed elsewhere in the first place? The three HAVE to be plugged? Why wasn't this one plugged earlier in the original post when he only plugged the two with the marble and disregarded the one that was circled?

I'm not being argumentative by any means, just want to make sure it's done right, and not gonna blow up on me lol

It's not gonna blow up on you

When I do something I like to do it right, so I plug both sides of the valve plus the air box and the exhaust intake. Some guys remove the valve altogether. Up to you bro.

Haha alright, I guess that solves it then. I'm heading out tomorrow to buy another hose end cap and tearing the bike apart again.

For what it's worth, I've got a power Commander on the way. Since I'm pulling off the airbox anyway, I'll plug the valves completely when I do. The marble was a quick and easy option, but if you're going to tear into it, why not finish it all the way?

Tony - i may be wrong but i thought that if you remove the valve all-together the FI light will come on. No?

Now here's the real question then... the other one that "needs" to be plugged has another hose that attaches to a metal end on the engine. Does that metal end need to be plugged too? There are four plugs all together? We need a better DIY I think.

Yep, if you want to remove the valve altogether you'll need to wire in a resistor to avoid the FI warning light.
