I think you'll like it, but if not reversing should be easy. If you have a small magnet screw driver would help to hold the plate in place while setting the screw. But, I think you like it.

Are the screws magnetic? On other non-bike projects I have been encountering aluminum or stainless screws, which is really irritating.

I did this mod and like it so far. Better response and even better shifting. I can "feel" the engine better now.
Screws seems to be stainless....
This should be a sticky !!
I can't believe i didn't find this before...

Since then I've added the Autotune module which automatically adds or subtracts fuel based on what the O2 sensor is telling it. The problem hasn't returned.
"I see," said the blind man. Thanx for the explanation. I will put off pulling the secondaries until I decide if I want to go to the expense of adding the Autotune. Might be worth it, though.
