+1, a dremel and some electrical tape to cover the hole.

Just out of curiosity, why?

the only reason they are there is to reduce noise. i like to be loud the top chamber is already off with tape over it from the previous owner, im talking about the big bottom one, maybe i can buy a spare set and experiment with fiberglass and make a smooth one.

Are you talking about the triangular resonance chambers?

Mine just popped right off (no cutting necessary), plugged the holes with a rubber wine cork.


edit:
bottom ones huh? I always thought they kept rainwater from getting into your filter.

Read Post #5 in the link... I done my reading on this mod a long time ago, it does in fact get a richer fuel mixture.

Hmmm..I yanked off my upper resonators a long time ago and just electrical sealed them off...never even knew there were lower resonators/water traps...prolly bc they are so far back on the tubes/intakes...Id just leave em...I mean really, your not gaining anything here...the amount of air that those "dipp/lower resonators" take has to be obselete
