MCRider - Enviro mod.....   What exactly did you do?  (blank off plate and remove the SAS? - what are the steps taken?)
I am about to purchase the Wings exhaust and also change out the thermostat switch.  Want to have the bike run a little cooler since I will not have the catalytic convert (stock muffler) - what else do I need to do?

Truck11. If your bike is a 2014, you don't need the SAS block-off plate and dongle.  The 2014 doesn't have the SAS.  The dual spark plugs make the engine run cleaner.  After installing the pipe, do the 15min. idle reset so the computer can adjust for the new exhaust.  When performing the reset do not touch the throttle while starting the engine and during the 15 minutes.  Have a fan or two blowing air through the radiator in addition to the bike's fan.  My bike runs great without remapping. You can remap to optimize performance for the new exhaust, if you want.

truck,
Here is what I found on ADV to follow.  It worked & after the 15 min run in I've never looked back.

Quote
Canisterectomy:
1. Go to RadioShack and buy a pack of 1000 Ohm, 1/4 Watt resistors.
2. Go to the auto parts store and buy a 6mm vacuum port cap/plug.
3. Follow the hose from the canister to the left side of the throttle body. Disconnect and place the vacuum cap on the brass nipple,
   reuse the clamp/clip to secure.
4. Take the vent hose from the gas cap and disconect from canister and vent to atmosphere, trim as required. Make sure the open end is
 in a place where it will not get blocked with mud. Cut at an angle to help with this.
5. Remove the canister from the bike.
6. Remove the solinoid from the bike.
7. Jump the 2 pins on the plug that went into the solinoid with a 1000 Ohm, 1/4 Watt resistor. If you have dielectric grease,
   place in terminals before installing resistor.
8. Tape up resistor/plug assembly with electrical tape to waterproof and zip tie out of the way.
9. I have had no FI light or error codes for over 8k miles with this setup. If you do not want to do the resistor mod then
   just leave the solinoid attached, with hoses removed.

SAS Removal:
1. Go to auto parts store and buy 2 12mm or 1/2 in vacuum port caps/plugs.
2. On top of the valve cover there is an aluminum manifold with two rubber hoses comminmg off. One hose goes to the right side plastic
   cover/vent filter. The other, facing forward, goes to the left side SAS solinoid.
3. Remove this SAS hose and cap the manifold with the 12mm vacuum cap and use the clamp/clip to secure.
4. Remove the SAS solinoid and place a 1000 Ohm, 1/4 Watt resistor in the plug same as for the canister.
5. Follow the other hose from the SAS solinoid to the underside of the air box. Remove and cap the airbox with the other 12mm vacuum cap.
6. Be careful under the airbox as adjacent to the hose is the connector for the intake air temp sensor. This is fragile and folks have
   had bad luck pulling wires out of the connector. Be sure to unplug this before trying to remove the airbox.

Bike should start right up and should not have any FI light or different running characteristics after these mods.
 This just cleans up that area a bit.

Do not remove the SAS if you still have the stock map and the cat converter muffler or the cat will overheat and could melt the tank.

Chris - is that info from ADV for pre-2014, or all years?

Truck, that post is for 2013 and earlier.  I have a 2014 and bought the SAS block off plate and dongle from KTM Twins and had to return them when I discovered the 2014 bikes don't have the SAS.  The 15 minute idle reset procedure is the same for the 2014's.  When KTM added the second spark plug, the SAS wasn't needed anymore.
