    Reliability Mods

    I have my 2000 GP800 apart right now doing some reliability mods thanks to the sticky throttle shaft issue (thanks for the awesome write up on that one, btw). I am installing an oil block-off kit as well as a primer kit. Can I just leave the choke plates in place with no cable hooked up, and use the old oil injection ports for the primer lines? I can't imagine that there would be a noticeable performance increase with the plates removed and it's just a recreational weekend rider.

    Yes some people do that. As long as the chokes aren't flopping around and you can keep them open, it should work fine.
