Well, Rotti box stage II & flared bungs finally here! Bike over to my tuner (FastLine in Fremont) Wings, Bodi, SAS off, PCV & AT-300 and a custom Dyno base map. Lets see how she does when I return from a run to Santa Fe!

Just got my rottweiler airbox today, will be fitting it this weekend :D

BUT what is the normal service interval for this airfilter (cleaning and re-oiling in normal street conditions) ?
Thanks

Peter :-)

Peter, I can only express an opinion. If you're adverse to tinkering I would default to the OEM recommended schedule. The Rotti box should actually be tighter than the stock box it replaces.

However, as is the case with the final drive chain, I trust what I see and the conditions my bike has ridden through. For us here in the San Francisco Bay the ongoing California forest fires have given off a great deal of airborne ash and I would be cleaning and re-oiling more frequently, perhaps less frequently in the Winter & Spring. Observing what comes off the foam when you wash it it won't take long before you form your own baseline. It shouldn't be hard or very time consuming, and as an added benefit it's amazing what else you find when you're actively tinkering and looking at your sled.

Are the Rotweiller filters already pre oiled or are they dry and you have to oil them prior to install? I just installed my as is from the box thinking the initial oiling has already been done ( Like K&N etc) and I can buy the "no-toil" at a later time to clean and re-oil.

I can imagine a ton of people just slapping these on and not oiling them otherwise thinking the same or maybe its just me that thought this! haha :roll:

Has anyone done some dyno pulls to see the results with the Rottweiller intake on the 1290 Super Duke? The manufacturer has results from a 1190 but not a 1290 from what I can see? Would be very interested in results with just the intake and also intake with an exhaust upgrade. Also would be interesting to see differences with their stacks as I see they offer an option to mod. the stock rear one or install one of their shorty's or replace both with their shorty's.

Have you seen these runs for the 1290: https://www.facebook.com/RottweilerPerformance?fref=ts

As soon as I get my hands on my air box it will be on the Dyno for a custom map.

The last dyno chart that was posted on facebook from rotweiller was my bike. (Scott Neu) The kit is impressive. I knew after the first dyno run pull that it would push a easy 10+ horsepower than from what the stock box can do. :D

The stock box just doesn't draw air fast enuff compared with the new rotweiller intake This kit is a must have for a modded out 1290. Chris from rotweiller is also top notch on customer service as well!

Also installed is

Powercommander V
Racefit Growler Decat exhaust
O2 bungs
SAS block offs

I had not seen the facebook stuff, thank you. I have been waiting for validation on the Rotty on this forum. Just received my Austin exhaust today and sounds like the intake is the way to go. I am still curious on how the different length stacks affect power? Looking forward to yours and others dyno results.

I did lots of different length stack testing on the 990's & running different length stacks improved the ride by quite a bit, have a look at my SMR mod list for all the Dyno results, 1290 stack testing to come.

As kev suggested, looks as though the bike responded well to the decat coupled with the rotty. Will be keen to see the difference between the straight through type de-cat pipes and the Bodis.

Very nice gains! Which combination of velocity stacks did you use?

I fitted Staggers air box for him today & have say the kit is top quality, I looked at roof clearance between the fuel tank & the top of the filter & Chris has certainly done his home work as the clearance is perfect to pull air around the full filter for max air flow. I already knew the 1290 would gain from more air when I ran my bike on the Dyno 2 months ago with the intake mods I did, now to have this kit available is the cream on the cake, I don't think there would be an air box that would out flow this one.

Stagger want me to fit a Teflon heat deflector plate which was template off the metal plate supplied, the install was dead easy with the Teflon being flexible the metal plate would need a bit of patients to install. Unfortunely I was unable to ride the bike due to my shoulder but look forward to mine which has just arrived in the country.

Looks great guys!

Definitely keen on getting one of the kits, does everything still fit in fairly neatly underneath the new air box?

Might be keen on a Teflon protector too, Stagger you making any more? Could be a business for you haha

Last night dreamed that not only had Chris and his crew taken over KTM's customer service department but my cock was 2" longer. Cried when I woke up and realized that the part about Chris and KTM was only a dream.

Oupy, just trace the metal shield onto a Teflon sheet and cut it out with a knife/saw.

Fitted my airbox, PCV & A/T tonight, will take it for a spin tomorrow.
I've never run a PC/AT before, and keen to see how it will adjust Stagger's map over the first few runs.
Thanks again to Kev, without his help there is no way I would've got so stuck into the last couple of bikes mod wise.

The air box fitted perfectly as though it was factory fit.

I have RTFM, but for the life of me I can't get the Target AFR table to save.
Each time I shut down the software the AFR table resets to zero.
Is there a SAVE/OK button I can't find?
