im sure it would throw fault codes and be a constant burden. i would assume a reflash at the dealer or mr rpm could im sure

I did remove them. The removal is straight forward. However you will need a dealer with buds to shut the air system down in the computer or you will be getting faults. It was a little tricky for them but the dealer I go to is awesome and figured it out. If I remember right they could not just go into buds and shut it off. I think they had to disconnect the computer from the machine. Turn off the ACS. Then reconnect. It wasn't hard once they did it.

I completely removed the compressor and the air lines. For the electrical I just unplugged from the compressor. Then placed those ends in a water proof box and tucked it out of the way under the seat, facing the rear. I did not remove the wiring from the machine. Just in case I ever wanted to put the air ride back on. Its a very expensive add on and sitting in my shed. If I ever sold the machine I may put it back on and take my elkas off.

Any one have a pic or diagram of air lines off compressor.. I replaced cylinder and a friend got ahold of my marked air lines and removed them so he could ride my machine while I wasnt home.. pic would be fine
