    I can't wait to see the install and tune laramie!

    @CPR I'm sure you've answered this before, but how does your system handle deep water crossings compared to stock? It seems like water might be able to get up around the engine and sucked in a lot easier. That's my only concern with going this route. Everything else seems very positive.

    You can't really have your cake and eat it too in the intake world. Occasional splashing is just fine and rain is not a problem either, but this is an open filter element and deeeeep water stuff above the carbs / throttle bodies is not recommended. You lose a few inches of water crossing depth to gain the 10 horsepower they provide. This is just fine for 99% of the ADV community. So, up to the knees is just fine.

    On the plus side, they make so much horsepower you may now be able to hydroplane across now so win - win.

    OK, that's pretty much what I figured. Knee deep should be OK for most of what I do. If I decide to do a jungle/sub-marine trip I can swap back to the stock box I suppose! Just a thought, has anyone built their own splash guards or such to be able to divert a little more water, or would any of that cut down on airflow again?

    You can make splash guards just fine. We have some things in the works for the guys wanting that. The air pulls from so many spots its negligible.

    Wanting to make sure everyone has received their prizes. Laramie, your pre filter and SAS plate should show up today. :clap

    2nd and 3rd places should have your prizes as well.

    thanks again for the opportunity to use the product. can't wait to get it done. still doing a little research on the MAPPING, but promise to document everything i do so that it can serve as a guide for others who may want to buy this system.

    laters,

    We are absolutely thrilled that the kit went to someone so revered for his help on this forum. That is certainly the great part about our job! Looking forward to the build up process and we certainly thank you for that. :freaky

    We have been a little out of touch for the last week on a California adventure on our ADV 990 R. Big Sur then Monterrey to check on the factory KTM Superbike team HMC that runs Rottweiler Intake Systems. Fillmore pulled a nice 5th BTW. Then off to San Francisco and now on our 3rd day in Yosemite. Man we love that bike! Putting some exciting new parts through some durability testing. More on that later. We need to make sure our parts are protected from cheap copies this time so that tends to delay release a bit longer. Nothing hurts us more than working hard to bring a good product to the community and getting knocked off by someone with a measuring tape. We roll most of our profits back into R&D so look forward to some new stuff hopefully soon!

    All prized have been received and we got PM's from everyone so thank you all. Looking forward to seeing them in action! We should be at the KTM rally in CO so if anyone is planning the trip please make sure and stop to see us!

    Cheers,
    Chris Parker

    sorry for the delay in getting this all installed. just still a little nervous about the mapping. think i might just go ahead and try the 2-1 map that CPR has on their website. if it is a bit rich, that is ok. gotta start somewhere i guess. im really kinda surprised that you don't have one for a 2-2 exhaust, in comparison not many people run the 2-1 system. just a thought...

    thanks again,

    Wouldn't the mapping for a 2-1 exhaust be a little leaner then for a dual with the intake? My thinking is that the 2-1 would flow less making it run, all else the same, a little richer so the mapping might compensate for that a little. Just don't want you to burn 'er up!

    We do have a map for a 2 x 2 exhaust and intake but it's a file that is the more consumer accessible and that is the Power Commander V. And what we mean by "accessible" is what tuners use more commonly as almost all the motorcycle dynos are made by Dyno Jet which also happens to make Powr Commander so they work hand in hand and the tuners are trained by dynojet most of the time. It's like asking someone who is trained in Photoshop to create a graphic for you, but only using Corel Draw. They accomplish the same thing, but in different enough ways that the user is not used to.

    The files that we offer are more of a helping hand and some we made, and others we procured from reputable tuners and customers so anything "Tune ECU" was made by a tuner schooled in that which is rare when compared to PC.

    There is one more alternative where if you are used to Tune ECU and its cylinder designation which is the same as KTM uses (cyl 1 in rear and cyl 2 in front) as opposed to Power Commander's cyl in front, we can send you screen shots of the enrichment percentages of any PC file we have and reversing the cylinders, you can hand duplicate the % values into Tune ECU. Swapping #1 cyl in PC for #2 in Tune ECU. That being said, the value grid speced out in Tune ECU has more fine tuned spaces than PC and you would have to split a 10% value from a space in the PC tables between possibly 2 spaces in Tune ECU.

    Question is, is 10% on PC actually equate to 10%? And will it translate exactly into 10% in Tune ECU? Probably not exactly but it's like jetting in a carburetor just way more fine tuned as going from Jet to Jet in a carb may equate to a 5% change so (we believe) if you translate a PC table into a TECU table (Swapping cyls) you will certainly be very close / safe and will have a decent map. going to a dyno and checking AFRs after that would help you sleep, but not that necessary. You are guaranteed safe for sure.

    We are (every once n a while) working on an Excel computer that will do the above by copying and pasting PC values against stock values to make a Tune ECU value grid that can then be copy and pasted back into the Tune ECU grid and done. (It will be easier than it sounds

    Does any of that make sense?
