I am 1290 info hungry at the moment, I think I will be doing a stage 2 filter with base plate on top of the 1290's lower air box.

You know me I do mods that are cheap to do & work, I was thinking of something simular to this mod but with a foam air box on top so I can get the most volume out of the lid: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=3299&start=250

Just trying to learn (dumb question intro...)
Wouldn't the less restrictive air intake lean out the AFR even more than stock without remapping (enriching) to compensate?

Quite correct, I already have an O2 controller to remap the closed loop circuit & I have a basic adjustable fuel mod that can adjust the open loop mapping, I am working with a few tuning companies as we speak looking for that first full mappable tunning tool.

Kev,
Have you fitted this air filter to the 1290 and if so what difference do you think it made? I know some of us will be doing extensive mods to our airbox in the future once the maping is sorted out but I just wanted to know if this basic mod had any noticable effect.
Thanks.

All the air filter tests have been done & the results are in my 1290 mod list: viewtopic.php?f=29&t=6511&start=60

A full free flow air box will be out soon, I will be doing back to back Dyno testing & will reveal all the results & offer a custom PCV maps to go with the air box.

Thanks Kev.
I fitted the DNA filter today as an interim measure and will not chop my air box up until I can get a spare to work with or design and make another base plate and build a fully filtered top.

Kev,

out of interest... why did you go for 'DNA' filter as opposed to the usual K&N or BMC...?

I've used both in the past, and even have a BMC RACE filter in my track bike based on a recommendation from a dyno guy...

Just wondering as I hadn't considered a 'DNA'.

The results do look good based on your dyno runs as it looks like I can run a filter straight away without rejetting (showing my age there) -I mean retuning via a PCV....

Flow rates for me, from past experiences between the K&N & DNA filters tested on the same flow bench the DNA filters flowed more air, the reason being on the filters we tested the DNA filter ran larger filter pleats allowing more air volume. In some cases K&N claim there filters flow more & can really comment on the filters we tested for flow with back to back Dyno testing on the same bike between the brands. I have not done any flow or Dyno shot outs between the 1290 K&N & DNA filters, what I do know we should see some gains from faster air into this big V twin motor with an open air box.

I did approach DNA for a 1290 air box but they did not come back to me, I am keen on testing Chris's Rottweiler air box which will be released soon, I hope to get one of the first ones off the production line.

Chris at Rottweiler has certainly put some thought into this one, I must admit it looks the goods, this is the stage 2 air box with size ? stacks inside, Chris tell me there will be 3 stages, he keeps teasing us all with these snippets.

Aftermarket Filters & Air boxes

Those short stacks seem focused on top end power. I like to keep my factory stacks for bottom end power. In they won't fit then this box might not be for me. I want a bike that has a lot of bottom and midrange.

I am a torque lover as well, I am sure the track boys will snap the shorter stacks up, I am waiting on Chris's Dyno run results with the different stages to see what it does to the power.
