There are others here that will tell you it is not a good idea for various reasons. From a purely practical point of view the lid lid retains the air filter and air temperature sensor in place so that would if nothing else need addressing.

So, back, if I may, to the OP's original point, i.e., security.

Theft must be a much bigger problem in Europe, particularly, than here.  By "here," I mean the U.S.A.

Yes, I know that there are dicey areas everywhere, but the theft-to-Guzzi ratio must be in the statistically insignificant range.

Statistics don't matter if you are one Sad , but balancing the various PITA aspects of a lock v. probability of theft, I'll use the snorkelectomy saved space for a flask or food I don't want Kathi to know I eat. cheers

Does removing the snorkle increase or decrease back pressure? scratch

Use of the term "back pressure" increases my blood pressure.

Mad

High blood pressure is not good, don't ask how I know...

Correct terminology, as I have stated before, is impedance.

So, I've just removed the "Aprilia" snorkel.
Should I try and find a MG one?  Very Happy

Or, leave it off

This is very useful Information as I too have been pondering how to carry my disc lock.  The fact that it has a benefit as well is just gravy.
