Yes. Between the soft rubber and tacky sealant it seals sell. No dust in airbox.i

Does the uni solve the dirt/air leaking issues many have commented on?

Thanks again Night Falcon.
I seal the UNI's (gray one from Twins, orange from KTM) with waterproof grease to the air box. I've seen no dirt in the air box.

My problem with the Twin-Air (RR) unit was not the noise, but the fact that without the airbox snorkel (which is removed) the foam filter is very exposed - this becomes a problem if you install the RR EVO-2 tanks without the ADV or rally fairing, as the tank install gets rid of the plastic guarding in front of the shrouds - you can literally look at the air filter when standing in front of the bike - [see pic below] - which isn't a good thing in rain, etc ...

I took the Twin-Air filter off for this reason, and installed the UniFilter alternative - which just replaces the OEM paper filter and stays under the airbox snorkel ...

But I did notice a reduction in engine response ...
I have the EVO1 tanks with RR filter and trimmed those side pieces to fit. I ride in the rain often and have never had an issue with water in the airbox or wet filter. I cannot vouch for deep puddles as I usually loft the front over those. Also note that the intake velocity stack protrudes several inches into the airbox so you will need a lot of water in there to get into the intake.
BTW, I use No-Toil for filter oil.

I run the UNI filter with the EVO cover. Has worked well for me. The mesh is fine enough that water didn't get in.
I did have to start greasing the seal. Next time I'm in there I will be looking at ideas on how to tie down the center better.

Fasst Flexx and steering damper install?

Does anyone have a photo of a Fasst Flexx barset with steering damper installation? I'd love to see a closeup of that installation and find out a bit about the decisions (which Flexx and which damper, etc.)

I know I've seen other photos recently, just can't remember where. Think that guy bought Enduro 12 degree hi.

What are you unsure of? I have 12 degree Fastflexx and GprV4 on my 690 and 10 degree w/ GprV4 on my 500. No real difference from any other bar/damper combo other than the Gpr being shorter than some older dampers.

Thanks for the info.

I'm unsure about GPR vs. Scotts and then I'm a bit unsure as to which bend/rise I should be thinking about for the Fasst Flexx.

If you like the stock 690 bars (I do) the 10* enduro hi is the closest bend.

Ah. Well, I would suggest calling the guys at FastFlexx, they're very helpful. I started with a 10 enduro on the 690 but found it too flat, then ordered the 12 enduro for the 500. I ended up swapping them and think the 12 degree is just right on the 690, and about as close to oem ktm bend as I have seen. As far as the damper, the rise the gpr gives the bars is what I wanted, with some others like Ohlins being a bit taller than I was looking for.

I run the 12 on my 990 and found them to be very neutral on the wrist and elbows both sitting and standing. I chose the Scotts setup due to the added damping you get with the mount.





If you need any more pictures or info let me know.

Ah... they look alluringly like the new 4CS
ones from the 13 Bergs

DuctTape & Baja Dad - both of you look to
have the HDB top clamps with the Flexx...

For stiffness, or ? I just talked to HDB about
the clamps the other day - how do you like
them ?

Appears the Flexx bars prevent any of the
switch mounts from being used - or is it just
the angle of the shots ?
