GSXR K7/8 flatshifter auto blip vacuum

Hi. Just wondered if anyone running gixxer k7/8 with a flatshifter kit have experience of the auto blipper vacuum take off from the throttle bodies? Is there an obvious take off or is it a matter of drilling from scratch.

Not there yet but will be the next job and thought it worth asking if someone's been there before?

Cheers, Ed

Its a few years since I fitted one on the Westfield but from memory, remove one of the vacuum pipes from the throttle bodies and replace with the flat shifter auto blipper.
Try it as it is first as it may be ok. I seem to remember having to run a drill through the take off to get mine to work reliably but it was a very very slight increase in size from standard.
I don't recall having to drill out and tap in a new adapter.

On the K7/K8 I just drilled out a vacant vacuum port boss, on the left side of the extreme left throttle body, and installed a suitable push on pipe.
