So, do I just disconnect the servo and plug this in?
If I remove the servo mechanism (and plug in a Servo Buddy), should I also remove the flapper valve in the mid-pipe?
Or just leave it, disabled in the open position?
To remove the flapper valve completely would require drilling, cutting, then some welding. Seems like a lot of work for just a little gain, no? I'll do it, but would prefer not to.If you can get to the valve to remove it - do that. If not, and you remove the cable - do wire it open, because the spring will not be enough to hold it in the open position at high RPM and it will close every time you open the throttle and cause problems.

Do you know of anyone who makes an aftermarket mid pipe section for my application (2016 1200R)?
Thanks, once more.
Sounds reasonable.I personally dont know of any midpipes but I havent done any research for that bike so it is possible that one is available somewhere. That would be a question better posted to the Monster section of the forum. I personally would not drill and weld the flapper, I'd just remove the cables and safety wire it open. And, that's exactly what I did with my Tuono. However, I did have the flapper section cut from the pipe on my Streetfighter way back in 2010 and welded in a new piece. I think its a lot of work and expense for virtually zero gain. About a year later I bought a full system for that bike that doesnt have a valve.
Should I bother removing the actual servo motor itself, or just leave it and disconnect the cable from the flapper?
