    2007 250X Valve Cover Block-Offs

    On 2007 250X I have installed the Billet Alum Valve Cover Block-Offs...
    I was looking at online Kawa 'Valve Head Cover' parts diagram - it shows both 2007 and 2008 configs -
    Since I am using Block-Off plates (as used 2008 onward)...
    Can I remove the 'Reed Valve Assys'???
    Or should I leave them?

    Thanks

    The "reed valves" have rubber around the edges that seals the block-off to the head cover. I left mine in for that reason. Alternatively you could just add a homemade gasket or some sealant. But since it's just the head cover, it's may not leak even if you don't do this.

    Similar to KMAN, Leave in due to rubber seal or use gasket material and fab using ball peen hammer.
