It's an air silencer, it is not needed. It's only for the tree hugers who want a quieter intake noise. If you delete it, you need to seal it back up with a cap or something.

Sure, with enough modifications (about as much as me) and you will gain a little power, probably nothing impressive. The silencer restricts it a little bit. It's basically useless and I have already removed one. Plan on removing that large one your talking about as soon as I find a way to cap it off.

I intend to cap it of simply by cutting a piece of rubber out of an inner tube and placing it over the opening and tightening the clamp.. Im not looking for performance gains, Im just looking for quick easy access to my spark plug...

That works too. :) I mostly want to eliminate mine because it's just ONE more little thing that restricts air flow. Maybe nothing huge, but it's something to eliminate that's not needed.
