3rd design airbox for 1190.

Post by nick280 » Mon Jul 27, 2015 10:53 pm

I order a new lower airbox from Jim Aim, I'll not go into the reason why but I bought a KTM DNA filter too. The airbox has been redesigned again and in my opinion, it's much better. Instead of the hinged securing frame, they have now introduced a two peice wedge slide design. One peice is designed to house the filter, the other peice is used to squeeze the 1st peice holding the filter again the airbox allowing the filter to be seated with ease and confidence. The old design made it hard to seat the lower part of the filter.

Oh, and I think the unifilter may come over oiled looking at the state of the airbox after 1k miles lol

Just an update. This is what the inside of the airbox looks like after 5000 miles with the latest airbox Base and DNA power parts filter fitted.

I think you'll agree, it's pretty mint. I think KTM have finally sorted the issue for jo blogs like me that only ride on roads. I don't know how much the DNA filter has helped. I'm happy after seeing how clean it is.
