Yes it will change the bike. You will have a wider/more usable power spread. Try a rev pipe on the 220 along with VF3.

This is the time to replace the stock piston on that 220. (assuming it is stock)

re: pretty clean and working properly should i still take themapart?

I wouldn't bother with it. Guess that would depend on what 'pretty clean' means.

If you can activate the KIPS via the nut under the LH cover easily, and the KIPS returns to its stasis point when you let loose of the nut (return pressure comes from the spring assy in the case. If the cylinder is off, it won't HAVE any spring pressure on it) it's fine.

Sounds all good.

Unless you're interested in taking the thing apart just to see how it works..why bother?

Let us know how you like it when you're done!
