    I agree with calling, and speaking to shipping. The staff are consummate professionals, and incredibly helpful. It's staff like they have which really enhance a small business, imho.

    I agree, before I order anything from them I call first.

    I got an email form them in response from them June 29th with answers to some questions i had before i placed an order for the air box. They said the issues were getting some of the materials to make part of the system but they thought they'd found a solution. then there was problems with delivery of another part. They sounded hopeful that they wouldn't take the full 8-10 weeks as listed on their website at that time, but sounds like some of the limiting factors are outside of their control.

    I’m gonna call and pretend I’m him and order a bunch of stuff. Just drop shop it to mass, I’m on a trip, I’ll pick it up there.
    Think my accent will give it away?

    This airbox is a piece of Rottweiler magic. Totally improved my 790.

    What's the difference between the power plate and the full airbox? The 890 R I just bought has just the power plate. Would it be worthwhile to go full airbox?

    Full air box has more airflow with larger surface area for the filter meaning it’ll be better in really dusty conditions. The power plate is good at solving one of the flaws in the OEM air box design in that he cover for the air box is often not sealing super well so the snorkels don’t actually do anything. It’s also adding a pre-filter which helps with the lack of filter size.

    The power plate is a simple upgrade that solves a couple of problems with the stock air box and is pretty cheap.

    Received the intake last week and installed it prior to a 2K mile trip around CO,NE,SD. I think because of shipping delays Rottweiler included an additional filter and filter skins. Awfully nice of them. I live at 7K feet of elevation and haven't had the 790 below 5K feet since I bought it a year and a half ago. The intake made a substantial increase in performance at elevation and by the time I reached the low elevation of SD and NE, the bike was f'n ripping. I had no idea.

    Worth note, when I took the OEM intake off, there was dirt inside that had made it past the filter.

    Picture is before oiling the filter so don't give me any grief.

    When I called them to inquire, before July 2nd, they told me they were running about 6-8 weeks on back orders for the intake.
    I’ve seen they’ve shipped a few batches since then, so they must still be running on the same delay for whatever part it is that’s been the holdup this whole time.

    @the1russ I think you're only the second installer to have reapplied a zip tie on the crank hose. Good catch. Mine was tight as hell already, which may be why I overlooked adding a zip tie to the RWP intake.

    @BHoward , looking again at this photo from way back on page 10, I'd still consider pulling the pre-filter out a bit so the rim that helps seal the filter can 'fully' do it's job. It seals at the mating surface, but the rim at 90 degrees to the mating surface also helps seal things. I think that added safety measure will outweigh the pre-filter tucking-in. I think Chris might mention this in the instructions or the video.

    You do NOT want to tuck the prefilter under the sealing edge of the filter. Yes, it makes for a clean look, but it can absolutely compromise the seal of the filter to the box.
