AIS noise fix
I pulled the ais reed valve apart and lined the inside of the housing with a bicycle inner tube quieting it down a lot.

RE: AIS noise fix
Hmmm...so what kind of noise does the AIS reed make? Maybe some of the noise I've been attributing to the valve train on my 650 is coming from the stock AIS?

on a 650 sounds like a fluttering chirping fan belt. a reed valve kinda vibrates open and closed. its usually the loudest in 5th at 45 to 50 then quiets after that. very annoying around town. on the interstate you won't hear it at all. most people remove it because of the noise. I figured it would be better to just silence it some and keep the functionality of it. I like the idea of cool air going to the exhaust port. might even cool the exhaust valve a bit.

Other than for emissions testing the AIS is useless. It won't cool your valve because air is injected after the valve.
