    Hi @senoj

    sorry to hear about your bike, allow me to ask you how a fuel filter system was supposed to be the solution to a starting problem, where did the suggestion come from?

    in order not to "spam" this topic, I shall write o the other one regarding the starting problem

    cheers

    Thanks for the post and other sources of information. I just serviced the fuel filter at 25K, and went ahead with the full guglatech upgrade. All went well, this post certainly helped, and feel good knowing i wont have to worry about this for a long time.

    Cheers

    Hi Giuglemonster.

    Mate there is no suggestion from you or me that your kit corrected starting. My original post was simply to highlight my findings. My bike is great and doing well.

    You have what appears to be a good product. I think enough has been said so I'll leave this alone now.

    Cheers

    Thank you for posting this. Made the swap a lot easier.
    Question in reference to that other whine AKA throttle servo. Does that go away? It seems like mine is whining whenever the fuel pump is engaged.
    I wonder if I f..ed something up. The bike runs without issues btw. Just that sound that wasn't there before.

    Since I installed this within the last week I have not noticed any whinning or additional noise. Sounds like it usually did upon starting.

    Since I installed the complete set-up from guglatech on my 1090R with 220km on the ODO I’ve had no -0- starting issues or noise. Prior to the install I experienced the "3-4 attempts" issues every start. Now at 6900km.
    Coincidence? Don’t know but don’t think so...

    Hi, nope, you are seeing prices with VAT, outside the EU there is no vat, it's roughly 178 euros plus 20 for shipping

    **Update** the throttle servo noise is mostly gone, don't know why it was there to begin with but some bikes have that noise from the start and some don't. Mine didn't.
    One tip for the tank neck filter is to drop it on the side of the fuel pump. Initially I positioned it on the opposite side, and the fuel pump pulled it towards the other side and mangled the filter, which made it almost impossible to fill. Works much better on the opposite side. Hope that helps with anyone who's having issues with high velocity fuel nozzles at gas stations.

    from most of the installations the best position is toward the back with the green boy trick

    keep me posted

    thank you

    cheers

    What side of the bike do you fill your tank from? If you fill your bike from the right hand/throttle side of the bike, I can see it being better stuffing the filter down on the pump side. I fill mine from the left side/clutch side and have my filter stuffed down the opposite side of the pump.

    "the fuel pump pulled it towards the other side and mangled the filter"..........Do you mean to say the "gas pumps fuel nozzle"? You make it sound like the bikes pump did so.

    I was filling from the left side till now. The suction from the fuel pump pulled it towards the clutch/fuel pump side whenni had the filter mounted on the right side. After sitching ot to the left I got much better results.

    Hi, I believe more in a coincidence/better installation rather than the fuel pump dragging the filter, such a suction with an EFI pump is practically impossible ;)

    glad your refueling time improved

    cheers

    Well I just realized that my neck filter has fallen off into the tank. I've been trying to fish it out but no luck. I pulled the fuel guage float out to see if I could spot it down in there and noticed a LOT of debris down on that side of the tank. It looks like just dirt resting on the bottom. It was not there when I originally installed the Guglatech filters so I'm thinking that whatever was in the neck filter is now free in my tank. So it looks like I get to drain the fuel and clean it out. I never really like it all that much, caused fueling to take a long time but now seeing all that shit down in my tank makes me glad I had it. Except that it failed and has caused a bigger headache. Oh well, I email Guglatech and it seems like they take care of this issue pretty readily. Thanks for reading my bitch session.

    GT will take care of you.

    There is very little room to fuel these bikes. Screenshot_20201122-002707.jpg

    Hi @bighog85

    sorry about the issue, positive side is that the filter was doing it's job and you may use the situation to clean/flush the main filter to re-vamp the filter "bad" design

    I'm trying to find your purchase order to check against out DB about the production lot, can you please send us an email with the purchasing details?

    thanks

    Have one of those too, with the two halves tank design plus the part going toward the back, unfortuately it's quite ineffective ;( sorry about that

    @bighog85, btw, the new generation is way more effective in fuel/water/dirt operation plus way faster at refueling ;)

    only good news than ;)

    cheers and again, sorry for the inconvenience

    My kit is somewhere over the Atlantic right now. I didnt hear anything about discounts. $175 for o-ring set and two filters. I noticed after purchasing, a kit on Rottweiler site for $75.

    we created a full kit and all prices are VAT free once you complete the purchase, we're not Ammazzzon, we produce not simply re-sell ;)

    thank you for understaning
