Let us know how you end up leaving it and how it performs. I preferred mine plugged and didn't need to install the smaller silencer tip in my TwoBro's. I felt that the exhaust was too loud without the PAIR valve being plugged. I'm also running a Bazzaz fuel controller.

I ended up leaving PAIR unplugged for now, juice box pro really squared things away on the bike, still a small amount of pop on deceleration when in low gear high rpm... But overall it's about 95 percent gone so I don't feel a need to replug, exhaust seemed really loud first few days but I'm guessing that was just because I was used to hearing the quiet stock muffler, bikes running strong and very smooth with the TBR full exhaust and juice box pro, your tutorial was very helpful

Nice write up but please add that the negative battery terminal should be disconnected before the tank gets removed.
Rare that any fuel spilled will still be there come reassembly but it's best not to take the risk

Thanks for the suggestion. I've added the following line to the document:
"Before removing hoses or the gas tank, take the precaution of disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery."

Also, isn't there a step missing? Aren't there two ring fasteners that need to be loosened as well in order to remove the bottom half of the airbox? If not, I swear there's something connecting it that's keeping me from being able to lift it up!

There is nothing more than disconnecting the hoses in order to lift the lower part of the airbox up and out. Specifically, the hose that connects to the center part of the engine directly under the airbox that has the metal retention clip. It's on page 9 of the document. You can access it from the side of the engine.
