    You can always get one later if you find yourself crossing the Sahara or the jungles of Vietnam Nam with your SMR :)

    Excellent news! I didn't see skins on your site, but I haven't dug in too deep yet. Will put in an order in the next few days!

    Your site has the following language at the bottom of the page for the filter:
    "Notes: this system is for racing and is not claimed to be road legal. Like with all open air filter systems, it is strongly recommended to tune your air fuel ratio when installing this."
    So its just a matter of adjusting the air/fuel screw on both carbs, no need to re-jet?

    That depends on what filter set up you have now.

    What is the shipping time frame? Haven’t received any confirmation of ship time or tracking number. Thanks! Out of town and want to ensure a neighbor gets it for me and not leaving it sitting out in the weather.

    Thanks! Didn’t read much of the site since I was focused on ordering the filter. Thanks for the quick response.

    Production is going very well and on schedule...we don’t want to rush anything given how long so many of you have waited (so patiently)... nearly sold right through our first batch of 100 units...just about to start the next 100 batch of production so there won’t be any waiting time for other orders.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Anyone here going to the LC8 western alps rally June 29?

    Would jetting change be required if changing from stock paper filter?

    Yes - strongly recommended. There are a number of carb tuning threads here and their recommendations for any ITG based filter systems would apply to this as well.

    What's the advantage of this new set up versus my current one, which is the 'classic' uni pre filter system, ie a standard paper filter with the foam pre filter in place of the snorkel?

    I assume it will offer more air flow, and so more top end power. Therefore rejetting with larger mains will be required? What effect on the mid range torque should we expect?

    I'm undecided whether I want to start the jetting process again, having spent a long time getting my set up right for the pre filter system.

    Is anyone able to post a Dyno graph?

    Thanks :)
