Ohhh, me God what I did! Removed AIS! Global warming! Naughty, naughty, naughty! Yeah, I did it and roadie is purring sweetly! No clattering, no noise, absolutely fantastic! Although very simple task, pulling the elbows is not as easy as it looks when you read few instructions on the net. I used refrigerant R22 gas (if you even mention this in Europe, they'll arrest you, here in UAE nobody cares) to freeze the elbows a bit and then yank them left-right with supplied drift extension, (fits perfectly in the elbow), up-down with a hammer – cautious advised – you are dealing with aluminium alloy cast cylinder! Then slowly out with Vise-Grips! Then I placed the plugs in the holes as far as possible by hand and only then knocked them in with a hammer over supplied drift – again cautious! I kept the plugs in small plastic cups with water and froze them overnight. It helps. When the rest of AIS was removed I plugged the vacuum hose with a golf tee and pushed it under the tank. No need to remove the tank for this operation, only the left side cover. Baron's omitted to supply a plug as listed in the kit.
