You can leave motor in place, just remove cables (this will NOT show any warning on dash but will store one in memory if GS911 or similar plugged in) Valve will then stay open. Not very noticeable noise increase as only opens between something like 4500 - 5500 anyway
No need for the ESE unless you don't want stored fault code, which won't make any difference to anything anyway

Caveat to this is if you run it for a long time you may burn your servo out, not a big deal, cheap used on Ebay, but happened to mine after  running it unplugged for 20k miles or so, servos don't like no load on them. (replacement motor is wayyy cheaper than an ESE dongle if you buy used)

Thanks Bobdave. Be good to meet up for a rideout some time, although it's looking a bit chilly currently. 7 degrees or more for me.

Welcome from a fellow Ironman (although I did mine so long ago I am probably a Rustman by now !).
Enjoy the bike.

Welcome. I am down on the Hampshire/Dorset border at Ringwood. I bought my gen 1 XR from Bahnstormers. I found them to be very good.
Enjoy the bike.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Servo Buddy-Flapper Questions
« Last post by Ant on Today at 02:03:18 am »
2016 Gen1
Stock Exhaust

Been looking at the Healtech Servo Buddy, do you also really need to remove the servo motor and all cables?

I'm kinda thinking the easiest thing to do is just disconnect the two cables and that will leave the flapper open.

Last but not least do you really get a noticeable difference sound wise?

Appreciate any tips on this.

Went to Bahnstormer Alton for their Octoberfest, just to get a hotdog and a free coffee. Left there having bought a 2021 gen 2! What a great bike. Previously I was on my fourth Ducati Multistrada and thought, why not have a change. Glad I did. Loving the pin sharp handling of the XR and not missing the vibes from the 1260 Multi although the Multi was also a great bike. I'm based in Chandlers Ford (last exit of the M3 southbound). Do around 7 - 8k miles per year to include a couple of European tours. Cheers for now. Jon.
