Default Disabling PAIR Valve

I'm trying to disable the PAIR valve on my '08 C50 because I'm getting quite a bit of popping on decel. However, when I removed the cover I discovered that my setup doesn't look like the one pictured on Moccs Place. The instructions there say to plug the bottom hoses but mine has one hose coming in the side and two straight out the back one above the other. I could probably remove the tank and follow the lines but I'm still not 100% sure where the lines go to that need to be plugged. Anyone with an '08 C50 or knowledge of one that can point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

I have an 06 C50 and my pair valve had been fine until very recently. 24K miles and I am also looking for specific disabling instructions for the fuel injected version.

do you have the 2 chrome looking hoses that feed into the cylinders? I just plugged those up on my 05 rather than marbling the existing hose. I had done the hose thing at 1st and the hose deteriorated from the engine heat and started leaking so I just plugged the metal hoses with vacuum plugs, a little permatex, and hose clamps.

I took the whole pair assembly off and tie wrapped the solenoid to the frame under the tank.

The third hose goes straight across to connect to the back of the air filter housing (football). When I disabled mine, I plugged that hose on both ends. I'm not sure if it's necessary to plug that hose, but it didn't hurt anything.

I disabled the PAIR using Mocc's kit on my '06 only months after getting it. Very easy. I'll talk to you about it tomorrow when we ride to Port Jervis.

I plugged the two hoses coming out of the back of the valve with golf tees. Mine is an 08.

Have not noticed much difference in 3k miles.

Thanks Mr. P, I also have an '08 and I thought those were the correct hoses to plug and you have now confirmed it for me. I will be plugging them up tomorrow.

I would like to thank everyone yet again for their help. I've been away off and on alot lately and haven't had much time to work on the bike. However, today I got out a couple of golf tees and disabled the PAIR valve and it took away probably about 90%+ of the popping I was getting on decel.

I just de-Paired my 08 and boy was the front one was hard to do -- there wasn't anything easy about it. Now the back one was easy. I hope that you all have small hands, or know someone who does.

It does sound better now.

For all those who aren't sure about the hoses on the 08 with fuel ejection, its the same as on the instructions. There are 3 hoses -- one connects to the tube that goes to the front, one connects to the tube that goes to the back and one that goes to the backside of the air filter box (unless you have already switched to an after market air filter box, then you have already disconnected the air hose). There are no vacuum hoses to disconnect on the C50.
