    Come on guys, don't post another product on Sporting Wood's thread. Maybe he makes one for the 990 in the future, but IMHO posting up another system in his thread is just wrong.

    How does this filter compare to the Rotweiler fiter setup? Looks to be nearly the same...just cheaper!

    Just ordered...

    Any info on where to get the new slow and main jets? I've already got a H2W kit installed...

    I just need the jets, right?

    Free bump with thumbs up from Denmark.

    Bike runs(barely) with the ITG sausage setup.

    The next person who posts links to a competitor's filter is getting a vacation. :ban. Posts punted again. Use the bike forums for such discussions...

    As per the posted rules, this thread is for the vendor to talk about their products and for inmates to ask said vendor about this vendor's products..

    Please read the posted rules.. it ain't complicated... No thread shitting, no poaching... If you have an issue, contact the vendor via PM first and give him/her a chance to resolve it. (this is generic to all threads in the Vendors forum).

    In your climate, the bigger 45 slow jets may be the way to go. If you climb up to altitude any, say over 8000' or so, I have found them sort of rich. I keep the stock 42 pilots in my rig which allows me to keep the bottom end flexible to altitude and the mpg at 40. Plenty of power to go around if I climb up in rpm's, where the stock box restricted HP. Its my version of having my cake and eating it too. 45 pilots make a bunch of HP down low at the expense of altitude flexibility and mpg, but that's OK if that's what you're after. With Baja sand roads and dunes not so far from where you're at, I can certainly see how that could be fun.

    For mains, I'd stick to somewhere between 170-178 depending on your pipe.

    Thanks:freaky

    Could you elaborate on the above sentence?
    Stock mufflers what mains? Akras with large db inserts would be good for what mains? (sea level & warm climate)
    Also, having same mains front and back would mean re-balancing the carbs?

    Eagerly awaiting for plate to arrive, thanks!

    I couldn't imagine doing this mod with stock pipes! The cats would get very hot if its just a touch rich.

    With Akras and db killers I'd go with 175/178. I run 2 178's ( *EDIT* I've since determined that this is a bit rich. See post #2 for updated user results and recommendations) in my bike with the same pipes. Years ago I tested O2 out of either jug separately. What I found is that the traditional approach yielded one cylinder that ran richer or leaner than the other... Cylinder head temps didn't vary much with running same mains either. As a result, I've ran same mains since 2007.

    No carb sync is necessary. That's an adjustment of the cables.

    Filters are on the way from the manufacturer to me as of yesterday. If everything remains on schedule, I should have everyone's order out next week. :freaky. Thanks for the patience.

    Brown Santa dropped off the filters 2 hours ago. Everything's boxed up and ready to ship tomorrow.

    This one belongs to you, avocado farmer! :freaky
