Pair question

Does the pair mod have any benefits besides stopping popping on decel and getting an accurate a/f ratio when tuning? I'm talking about the simple pair mod, just blocking the hose to the airbox?
Does it hurt to have the bike pop and shoot a flame on hard decel?
Is there any added power increase/decrease from doing this. I doubt it, but wanted to get the expert's opinions. I wondered because it must change the airflow past the o2 sensor a bit. I also heard it may smooth on/off throttle transition. Is that possible?
I did use search, but didn't find exactly what I wanted so I thought I'd ask.

Re: Pair question

Shouldn't do any power changes really. Mostly just stops the extra air so that there's no popping or backfiring. Shooting flame isn't necessarily a good thing (street bikes anyways). It can help sometimes with throttle smoothness, but I don't think you'll even notice it. If you really wanna get a smoother throttle response, do the TRE mod.

Re: Pair question

remove all the hoses and connect the 2 plated together with a piece of the removed hose, plug the hole in the air box, go ride.. no difference in go-power but a lot neeter space under the air box.

Re: Pair question

When I flashed my ECU I had them disable it so I could completely remove it. Other than easier to work on without that crap in the way and no more backfires there was no difference.
