I would respectfully suggest that you include some pictures with the installation instructions. I was eventually able to logic my way through it, but a visual example would have been helpful.
For instance, the instructions direct you to route the crankcase breather under the throttle body and that you might have to remove and inch or two to make the hose fit to the check valve. The only way I could make the hose fit properly was to squeeze it tightly against the wiring for the injector. Also, I noticed that I had crimped the hose at the turn across the top of the engine, so I had to be careful to adjust the crimp out of it.
I also had a little anxiety about how to install the hose on top of the check valve; I found a thread here that showed another inmates' install and it made perfect sense then!
Regardless, so far, I am very happy with your product. Thank you for addressing this need!
Thank you very much for your comments. We have admittedly gone back and forth with the placement of the breather. At first, it was in front, and customers asked us to move it to the side where it would be easier to access. We did this to success with our bike but customers still had issue with getting near the wiring which if you turn the injector slightly is not a problem. With the way our brand new 2012 ADV R was wired it was fine and you may have to cut a zip tie or two and move the wires a bit.
We are currently back ordered as we have had a huge hit in sales and will be machining base plates soon so we may take a second look to see if we can make the breather a little easier to install.
Overall you really only do this once so it shouldn't be a big concern but we will try and adjust a couple things in the program. Our goal is to make this as perfect a product as possible.
Thank you for being one of many great customers!
