New Guy

Post by OscarFox » Thu Aug 18, 2016 10:14 pm

Just picked this up a few weeks ago. PO did a lot of the things I would have done right off the bat, exhaust, air filter, SAS delete, aftermarket seat. Only 4700 miles. So far so good.

Well that's good cuz my other bike is a dirt bike lol. I like the narrower feel through the tank and it feels pretty nimble. Almost 1000 miles in just a few weeks..

Question...

Is there a rule of thumb for air filter cleanings? I've got the rotweiller setup and just cleaned and re-oiled it recently. It's been about 2000 miles since I've had the bike. Just wondering when everyone is doing them?

I used No-Toil oil and cleaner on mine. water soluble, easy to clean and dry.
For tarmac riding in the UK I cleaned mine every major service.

No the Rotty. I started with a Rotweiller because it was cheaper but bought a stage 3 DNA earlier this year. Partly because they're easier to clean but also because they sound less harsh than the Rotweiller. One trouble I had was getting the oiling exactly the same each time. Some days it seemed to run better than others.
I think the billet DNA maintains a more constant pressure than a foam filter and gives more consistent performance.
Its probably nit-picking and very expensive nit-picking, but I think the bike does run slightly better, more consistently and sounds smoother with the DNA. (Maybe it just looks nicer and I'm a mug with a knack for wasting money...).
Haven't cleaned it yet but I'll use the service kit: http://www.motorcycle-exhausts.co.uk/DN ... 12356.html which
Basically a solvent clean, airline and light spray of filter oil.

Still got the Rotty. Ought to put it up for sale.
