There is some "proof" out there via dyno charts for the Rottweiler air box.

You use the OEM stack from the front cylinder and if you buy the Stage 2 you use the supplied stack from Rottweiler. Having the same length MAY not necessarily be the best set up. Thats why you need to dyno the bike after to see what works best. Go to Rottweiler's site it has good info.
Different length stacks are used to optimize power from each cylinder. Rotweiler seems to have offered the shorty simple because the stock unit would not fit their air box. The factory supplied equal length stacks. Some dyno time would prove it, but wonder if it would be better to install both stacks the same length? Interesting that Rotweiler doesn't include a second one in their options? Although you could buy separately.

I got both stacks. Despite not even being able to see it, my OCD side of my brain screamed for symmetry.

My order arrived today.
Well packed. Not sure what the big flat alloy plate is for as the box didn't come with instructions, so I'll look at that once I had a chance to download it

The alloy plate is probably some sort of heat shielding. Kit look good.

How do you keep this clean ? Does the filter need frequent washing and re-oiling ?

What's it sound like ? How's the bike run ?

Thanks

Robert

Given my bike is out of commission I am not best placed to answer any of those questions yet.

I am likely another 2 weeks out before bike is back in my possession due to a failed immobiliser and parts needed from Austria

Looks to be of good quality visually. Not sure what kind of fit it is on the bike

It didn't come with any oil.
All my filters were always oiled before also so I am not sure what the deal here is. Maybe 990 owners that had these intakes in the past can chime in.

But sounds great just sitting here :-)

All the 990 filters needed oiling before assembly, I would use spray oil, seems to apply easier with a foam filter with a cage.

Any recommendation as to a brand that works well with this type of foam? I always used K&N but it wasn't spray and it was a different material as you know
Spray from inside I assume?

For 600 bucks they could have included some

I don't think they can ship aerosols cans from over seas, I use Bellray or Motul spray oils on my foam filters in the past & will be using the same again.

I'm pretty sure that it's a debris shield.

Hope it's not needed cause it weighs 326 grams.

It's not going on my bike!

If it is they could have made it from something lighter. But due to heat they probably had to stick to alloy

I left that plate off. Did my first ride yesterday. Have the Akra map in the ECU and Staggers map. I think mine still needs a better map. Seat of the pants is yes it is faster but seemed to be very slightly bogging a bit in 5th or 6th at large throttle openings. Subjective though. Once nice thing I noticed is there is not the huge intake roar that I got with my 990 SMR and the DNA stage 3 filter. I am running USA 92 octane which should be close to the Aussie 95 RON?

I may go in and zero out the PCV map just to see how that feels. Best thing is get it dyne tuned though.

Rottweiler recommends NO Toil Oil for their filter. I had to go out and buy some as I only had K&N oil. I didn't install the "debris shield" either. I tried but it was a total pain in the ass and I was having to reroute wires and hoses. No thanks.

The picture was before. I oiled the filter. I used the No Toil Oil on the filter. I don't trust a dry filter.
