Smog Control Crap Removal - May 5, 2008, 08:56 AM

Who's done this? Have you done it on a street bike?

I know it's illegal--so are fender eliminators and reflector removal so let's move beyond that. Besides, this bike is 10 years old.

I have my '97 zx7r apart and am looking at all the extra smog control parts and thinking jettison. I know about block off plates. I have already worked out what I will do for that, if I go through with this removal. I want to know if there are any critical performance issues I need to consider before taking all that extra junk off. The main reason I would remove it is to cut a little bit of weight and complexity. Also, the fuel tank evaporation control system links up to the smog system in some sort of box in the tail. What should I do with the lines from the evap system if I remove that box? Or should I just leave well enough alone?

Advice appreciated.

OSD dam all you need to do is just pick up the phone! Once you block of the holes in the cover just trace all the hoses and remove them. You might need to tune it a bit but for maybe a main jet change. Let me know and I can come over and help. I will even bring the jets.

It'll basiclly just be a jetting issue at a worst case. Shouldn't be a big problem at all. Just trace the hoses and yank em out. Rejet as needed. Good luck bro. Gimme a ring if you need some help.

Thanks guys. I'm going to be selling this bike after I get it back together. It's apart now because I have to fix an oil leak that developed behind the clutch slave cylinder. Figured I'd replace the air filter and clean the air box while in it.

I'll have to think about whether I want to get into rejetting and all that, considering it's a short timer. On the other hand, getting it running nicely with some carb fine tuning would help with the sale.
