I installed one (pre-black powder coat) and it all fit, the gaskets were genuine Kawi parts, and the PAIR system is no longer a nuisance on my bike.
Nice kit!

I've heard a small amount of information on this mod from posts on this thread and I just want to know how this affects the bikes performance.
Pros/cons for this mod?
What I've picked up so far is that this mod will reduce clutter and a small amount of weight, but by doing this, there's no longer air going from the airbox to the exhaust through the pair valve. What happens when this airflow is cut off?

The purpose of the air injection is to provide oxygen so that any unburnt fuel will ignite and burn in the hot exhaust flow. It is purely an emissions control system to reduce hydrocarbon emissions. It causes popping in the exhaust as the fuel ignites.

Removing the airflow reduces popping from the exhaust, with a simultaneous increase in hydrocarbon emissions.

The primary purpose for doing the PAIR delete is usually to eliminate clutter to simplify other maintenance, and to reduce exhaust popping. It is not going to have any noticeable affect on performance (power, fuel economy, etc).

Ordered this PAIR kit last night, on its way so I can do this mod on my son's '07 EX. No problems at all getting it ordered.

I haven't gotten too mad at the PAIR system yet, but one or two more services and I'll be buying a set as well.

Ordered my second kit from Todd last week for a project, that came in a couple of days ago.
First one I got I ordered years ago to put on my daily. Still there 100,000 miles later, still doing its job and looking good doing it.
