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
Like Downunder said. You don't need me, simple to do, use the stainless plate as a template. Teflon cuts easy. I was impatient and went to a wholesaler and haggling/begged them to sell me a small piece. It will be SO much easier to just buy it on eBay local to where you are.

Stagger,what is the thickness you used for the Teflon,and did you use any Teflon in paticular for the heat that is coming up from the engine..

Maybe you should read this, it explains the reasons why I chose Teflon over other materials and gives more details re thickness. Teflon sheet is easily cut with sharp scissors or tin snips. Any holes that are needed for the cable ties can be installed with a simple hole punch.

I have changed from 1mm Teflon sheet to 1mm carbon fibre sheet because I found some spare lying around. Pics posted here viewtopic.php?f=29&t=7042&start=20

Yip saw that one, will be interested in the before & after Dyno runs, knowing what we know so far the shorter the stack the more bottom end torque & HP is pulled off which could make the bike more suited for off road conditions below 3000rpm.

Bit of a strange question, but how would you rate the stock airbox with modified snorkels compared to the Rottweiler setup in terms of potential water entry?

The stock air box has the snorkels 100% directed directly into the standard air box filter, on the Rotweiler the snorkels are directed about 50% on the filter, the Rotweiler filter is oil base, the standard air filter is a paper filter. If you are going to remove the snorkels completely with the Rotweiler it will be right in the main stream rain.

We are entering our rainy season here in Oz & when it rains it come down on buckets & have no problems riding with the Rotweiler in the rain, we will soon see if there are going to be any major problems but looking at the design I have no fears.

I'm surprised no one has painted the air duct bracket on the Rottweiler? Think it would look great to be painted black.

Just on a side note sort of...

Have you guys considered using a 'thermo heat shield' if you're concerned about heat soak from the engine when adapting to use the carbon fibre shield..?

This kind of stuff..

I've used this adhesive backed stuff on my race bike to stop the exhaust burning the race glass.... works well !

Rode my bike 7 hours in wet conditions yesterday including 14 miles on a wet muddy dirt road that got the bike very dirty, but no issues with the Rott air filter setup. Also no issues with the carbon fiber plate to keep hot air off the filter. All good.

Went to order the Rottweiler intake. I notice on their site when you are asked to pay they ask if you have a code for a price reduction. Anyone know if they give price reductions to forum members? How do you get it, every little bit helps?

They have been very kind to their existing customers by giving the codes for future purchases. I have a code sitting in the draw for my next order

Does anyone have any tips for installing the heat deflector?

To say this has caused some frustration is an understatement. Do the majority of the cables sit above or below the guard? Which is the best angle of attack for the install?

This is what i see:

Can't see how i can get it past the wires on the left hand side? Do they sit above or below the deflector?

Just don't use it! Even Chris at Rotwieller will suggest that... You potentially get better flow and unless you plan on going through mud that deflector isn't really doing much anyways. Trust me, don't sweat it.
