Those are for the 990's with FI. The 950 is Carbbed. Different horns is what I'm told. Thanks for trying.

yes 950=carbs
but I guess I didn't have a close enough look then.... last time I saw the stacks on my friend's 950, they looked similar. I guess I am wrong then.

RC8 Stacks will not fit the 950's. Totally different design in attachment. We wish they would but sadly do not. On the 990's we have run them with our Rottweiler Intake System and so far, seat of our pants, we are very happy with the outcome. Dyno to put it on paper is next. We found (using our butt as the dyno for now) no loss of bottom as there is more area to scavenge air, better mid and top, and even smother throttle. Much less jerky. The Rottweiler Intake helps allot with the jerkiness, the RC8 stacks seem to help even more.

Side note: We should have pre filter foam covers within 2 to 3 weeks for the adventure guys. 2 different densities will be available. 40 cell and a 60 cell count. They are currently in production. CJ released a picture in the other thread about our filters on this forum.

I stand corrected. Thank you.
I have them on mine (990) and I saw them on a 950smr. So I have no idea how they were mounted then... Sorry not much help.

I saw the pix on CJ's website. Pretty sweet.
Any eta on an outerwear pre filter? Thanks!

I got to ride to work with the new carb settings. 26 miles of back road.
I'm very satisfied with where it is at this time. On the way home I will find a place to push up into the mains and see if it needs more fuel there.
So far from stock I put the needle to position 3 and raised the pilots to 45, IMS at 1.0 turn. I think stock pilots would work. It just takes many more turns on the IMS 3.0 or more. Basically the only real change I did for the filter was to raise the needle.
The altitude varies 1200-3000ft going to work. I have a 2 into1 and FMF can for exhaust.

Tonight I will fill up and start working on MPG measurements. I think I'll shut off the Aux tank so I can get more frequent fill-ups.

Note- I am generally a very conservative rider on the street. I rarely get into the mains. Some of you guys may want much more fuel due having Lead wrists.

You got to teach me to do that. Taking off the tanks to get to the clamps is what keeps me from screwing around with the carbs more. Maybe that's a good thing.

Edit: Of course you don't have an airbox to contend with. Duh.

We found all of the above was true in Baja last week. Everything worked perfectly and we didnt even need to change our filters. The throttle response was the best part, I see no reason to go with FCR carbs with you filter kit on the CV's.

I'm considering dropping a plate on top the filter to cause it to draw from the sides. I'm thinking that might smooth out the CV operation as well. Hopefully tonight I can do that and up the needle from 2nd to 3rd position and Pilot from 42 to the 45 I have. I'm up to 3 turns out and still starving at cruise. I'll have to stick with the 155/160 mains for now. Hoping the local shop has a couple bigger mains sitting around.
You need to go WAY higher on the mains.

Thanks for the input. I'm looking at getting 165,170,175 main jets. That will allow me to step up 3 steps in increments if needed. I'm into hi MPG results. Not so much holding 80-100 mph for long distances.
Mains don't come into play as much at cruising throttle.

Scribe- I think you will like this filter with the added skin for your riding.

Mains don't come into play as much at cruising throttle.
I got 34.6 mpg on a mixed 50/50 dirt/street ride yesterday, 100 mile ride. Pretty happy with that as I did not try in the least to conserve fuel. That result is with 175/180 mains.

The main jet affects all the jetting down the line, whether you are "on the main jet" or not. At least that is my experience. This filter design definitely affects the main jets on this bike more than any of the other jet circuits.

I finally ordered up some mains today. Up to 175. That should take me thru my needs. The bike has been running awesome. Still haven't done enough riding to see my mpg's. I should hit my low fuel point this week.
I did have some excitement the other day.
I was starting the bike hot. I caused a back fire up thru the carb.
With no airbox, Ummm the "boyz" got a little jolt from the front of the seat.

It really is loud when I go WOT.

Pre filters should be available by the first of June or close to it. There will be 2 densities to choose from. A 40 cell (red) and a 60 cell (grey) which is a little more dense. They will be in the 29.00 range and you will be able to oil and compress them into a ziplock bag for long trips. They are form fitted caps that slip over the top quite nicely and can be oiled as well or in place of the base main filter. We can't wait to get these out to the Adventure crowd!

Also coming soon:
Special SE version (thanks CJ Designs for the help on R&D)
RC8 intake. (anyone like an extra 15+ at 7500?, thought so)

Keep an eye on the site for details.

I'll take a set of both of these for my SE once the jetting is known.

What kind of timeframe are we looking at for these items?
