But there is 1 point that i put some question marks in.
That red tab which holds the filter pressed to the base plate, how long will this last over time........with vibrations and heat?.
You don't want that to fail!
Thought it would be a good time to weigh in on this. Followed it from our site tracker and referrer links. (Thanks to tahoeacr for posting this)
This tab is extremely secure and quite frankly, is not an untested design. It's been around for a while in other applications on race cars that vibrate quite a bit more that these twins. The plastic cage is fiber reinforced injection molded plastic that is super strong and NOT brittle in any way shape or form. We loaded this picture with a Lexan base that we machined in order to do the instructions so you could see how to run the wires below it and it also made a good example of how it seals around the edge. (Grease it where the grey dense foam is) We have tried to destroy a few of these in some different ways and we can positively assure you this is not an issue at all. We know it looks funny but itís very secure and strong. We have had these on 990 Adventures as well as SuperDukes and are working better than expected in every category.
Please feel free to hit us up with any questions and we are happy to answer. Thank you very much to this forum for the interest. More pics to come once the new shipment from the manufacturer arrives.
