    Apologies - we are scrambling to get the instruction download onto our sites. No, the o ring seals underneath the baseplate go in dry but there’s nothing stopping you from using some rim grease, etc if you want and are worried about dust ingress even though they’re closed cell and designed to compress to seal.

    Right on time NOT, I had too much fun riding the beast.

    My arms are a few centimeter longer. And I undestand why test pilots get paid so well....

    Bike is running great. It starts well with a little choke so not rich on bottem. When warmed up it is a little lean when cruising but that is fine with me. When wacking the throttle there is a slight hezitation which is not there when I roll it open. WOT feels oké, maybe a bit on the lean side. But it is dangerous to test especially on wet grass with a worn tire. I have to check tps and balance but leave the jetting as it is right now.

    Took me about 5h to install including a valve check, no adjustment, and cleaning a lot of Sahara sand form the slide area in the carbs. This was also the reason my bike ran poorly lately. The sand leaked along the air jet cover so I installed it with some grease. Installation is easy, do not forget to put on gloves when installing the cage and do not take them off until the filter is mounted on the base plate. O-rings and sealing of the filter on the plate are looking way beter than used by ITG or Rottweiler. I did not trust those but like these sealings.
    Some pictures I took during the installation ..

    It is clear it it is a well thought out product, that is why it took so long:rofl

    Did you find and influence on fueling by the dust cover? Why are there holes in it and is it planned to go below the filter screws. I would like it to take on and off without screwing with the screws. Last question: how far did your turn in the screws looking at the tread below the filter plate see picture above?

    I have the fan covers of the Adventure behind the fans, so hot air is directed down and out of the engine area, but I plan to make some cover to prevent water and dust comming on the filter from the front. And I would like to use the space behind the filter for storage now that I do not have the under seat starage anymore (Rade-tank).

    Oh and the jetting I have now have is: main 172 front, 175 rear, 3rd postion on needles, fuels screws 3 turns out, floats on 4mm just for references.

    I know - it did take us longer than initially anticipated but hope everyone agrees it was worth the wait to get it just right.

    The dust cover is designed to go under the two bolts and remain loose so dust and mud will shake off of it from the engine vibrations. Remember - that dust cover is for extreme cases like Fesh-Fesh, etc. We are already designing a water / heat shield for the front area but that’s going to be a while still because we are experimenting with various materials for it... as for your carb settings, try 3mm on float heights instead of 4mm.

    Well... I had an impulse. And now I have to start reading up on jetting and carb tuning.
    Looking forward to it!

    Indubitably. I failed to contain my excitement and had to go tell the world about my latest purchase. This forum is the closest thing I have to social media.
