The Kit

Got a few things from British customs one being the AIK, got a few questions:
1, There are 4 nipples, where do they go?
2, 2screw type things one with two copper looking washer/gaskets
3, One other piece?

I can only see where you used one of these items and then you use a resistor that is not included in the kit which by the way is extremely rare in Canada (as in I can't find one......No Radioshacks here), • Online, backordered in US Radioshacks!!!
Have looked all over.

BC sent me to this site off their site to use your instructions!!!

Have asked them where their instructions are!

Hope you can help,

Thanks,
Carl

P.S.
I will also be doing the Airbox removal and the Bomber pipes at the same time.

You may have missed it, but Forchetto answered your question in post #605.

Answers:
1 If you have a bike with carburators they are used to block the ports that are on the carbs. If you have an EFI bike you don't use them.
2 The threaded plugs are installed in the hole left by the SAI injectors when you remove them. The SAI injectors are next to the spark plugs.
3 The larger rubber plug goes in the hole in the left side of the airbox after you remove the tube that goes to the SAI valve body.

As for the resistor question: I have no idea who ships to Canada, but there must be more than Radio Shack as a source. Personally I would skip the resistor and go the Tune ECU route as you will most likely be headed down that path anyway based on the mods you're planning.

And one final thought: if I might be so bold and humbly suggest you grab a delicious La Fin du Monde and spend an hour going through this thread. You do have a lot of mods you are planning and there is a lot of useful info you will miss out on if you only read my abreviated response above.
Good luck.

Basic answer is yes, but look at the second or third post of the thread it has all the info including pictures.

Also note that since this thread was started things have changed somewhat.

We've found that a much higher value resistor will also fool the ECU adequately. This means a much smaller resistor that can be fitted into the existing solenoid connector. Higher ohmic value=less heat generated=smaller physical size resistor.

We can also use software such as TuneECU to do the MIL light disabling, avoiding any sort of resistor.

Details of resistor values and fitting method on this post:

O by the way just a little thing, whenyou bend backwards and forward, the air tubes[Work harden]. squeeze the tubes tight just below,,,,,,,,,,bending, with needle knose plyers,Why? I used that trick years ago,taking apart steel air lines,noticed slivers of steel inside pipe, from break, would not be good in comb chamber

It needs a simple 13mm offset ring wrench for tube removal without damage:



The AI port doesn't go into the combustion chamber, however it ends up very close to the exhaust valves as can be seen towards the end of this excellent borescope video by Alighieri, so yes, any metallic debris in there is best avoided:

This is a still from that video, the AI inlet can be clearly seen :
