I'm in Orange County, I have a computer and the cable.
We will see what happens in the future, hope to have a LC8 on the other side of the pond in the future =)
A few more pictures of the snap out dog house:
And yes that is my cheapo electric pump in there that I gutted and squeezed into a coleslaw container, have never needed to use it myself but needed it 3 times in the field to help out others!
And as I have said before it has not been field tested what so ever!
Feel free to copy but please give me credit for it =)
I would hardly call myself an experienced mechanic, but I do what I can. All someone would have to does ask for help, however, and it would be given, pretty simple, no need to beat around the bush.
Well, one wouldn't want to impose...
DirtyADV I want to thank you again for your pictures and walk through on your site.
Bike is back together, thanks for all the info and great pictures.
I'm on the same page with you, I installed the Rottweiler map as base on my ECU and going for the PCV/Autotune, for even more mapping accuracy. The bike is running great as it is but I expect it to run even better after Autotune does its magic...
Does anybody know where can I buy a Rottweiler snap-out in Europe?
Is it a good part or does it problems with allneament of tanks?
There might be a minor misalignment with the tanks and getting the front fairings in place and they might have a slightly bigger gap but I have placed old plastic on the 990R that had some alignment problems even before snap out bracket, drilled and riveted loops to hold bags on front fairings that have caused some distortion.
Maybe someone with newer stuff lining up well before bracket can add if they had any issues?
Would say that even if it adds a tiny misalignment its still worth it big time!
Ok thanks......I am not convinced to buy a snap out kit for my 990 s.....is there any pics with misalignment of plastics?
Dude, it's a KTM - everything is out of alignment.. I made my own from a 3mm thick pot steel, it works fine and I don't think that Rott's kit is that thick.
Love my snap out. Makes filter access a breeze.
Excellent......have you pics of snap out and original plastic of your ADV?
Perhaps try the Rottweiler web site?
I put the kit on my 2012 model. Did not notice any bad alignment...
Yes I know what is snap out......I am searching if there are problems of bad alignment
No alignment issues with my snap out on my newish to me 04 950 with 21k on the ticker. It does feel like the seat puts a bit of extra pressure on the box itself but shouldn't be a problem.
Buy it direct though.. I found a "deal" on fleabay.. Mistake.. The 950 CPU relo bracket was not included in the advertised 950 kit.. It was a 990 kit! A quick call to CPR and all was remedied!
Performance gain is about 1-2hp (of the filter) and an alignment issue (the snap out bracket) is about 1-2mm. What more you want?
ok I'll buy it soon .....thanks a lot
What I did (yes, I'm a cheap bastard sometimes) after installing my SW7, was remove the locking cable and all but the 2 front screws of the glove box; the cover and glove box are left bolted together. Now all I have to do is remove 2 screws and the fuse cover and I have access to my filter.
Mmmmm let me see your interesting work........
Nothing to see. The glove box and cover/lid are held together with 6 screws and that assembly is held to the frame with four bolts. Two more bolts hold the fuse block to the bottom of the glove box. I removed the two rear bolts and the two holding the fuse block; now all I do is remove the front bolts and the fuse block cover and there's my airfilter. You might be able to leave the cable attached (I don't remember), but I had an accessory fuse block inside the glove box with wires that made it difficult. I let the assembly dangle over the side of the tank.
