954rr exhaust valve bypass

Is there any benefit to buying a servo bypass module and undoing the cables to exhaust actuator.

lol. ill keep it short.

if its not throwing any codes like 34 or 35 leave how it sits. but expect failure at some point. the servo motor has some jankie ass plastic gears and they wont last long. mine failed somewhere around 10 or 11,000 miles on my 954. that was with the flapper already removed so the servo had less work than normal to do. my htev valve was in perfect smooth operation less any excessive carbon build up too. i opened the servo after i removed it and literally the teeth were sheared off 3/4's of the gears.

the bike wont make more or less power with or without the system using the stock exhaust. so the old mechanics saying applies here; if it aint broke dont fix it.

however, if, or when it does fail imo its a cheaper and easier fix to just buy the servo buddy or the vizitec unit i have on my 954 n remove all the servo, flapper and pin the htev in its mid way open position.
