Alrighty guys, i did the flapper mod according to the directions provided by rocket, thank you brother. So far i do feel a little bit more pull on lower RPMs up to 6-7k, and a smoother take off for sure. Thanks again!!

heres how i did it in case anyone wants to know where its located on 07 CBRs...

1) remove mid fairing
2) pull hose from diaphragm
3) put a screw in the hose (to not allow air in) and zip tie it (so the screw doesn't come out)
4) zip tie the hose somewhere away from heat/moving parts


My question is....do i have to put something to cover up the hole in the diaphragm as well? notice in the pictures after removing the hose its just open...
++ after doing the research the diaphragm should be left open as the picture shows for the extra air flow to the engine...(the whole point duhhh )

**Don't mind the dead spider in the 3rd picture...lol

Unless you are planning to put things back to stock you're done.

If you do plan on hooking the flapper back up you could put a vacuum cap
on the diaphragm to keep dirt and moisture out but probably not really necessary
