This was the first mod I did to the bike, every time I switch the filter the air box looks brand new. I just wash and pre oil the foam filter for the next time.
Any remapping required for this intake along with the decat mod?
I was planning on installing the Rottweiler Power Plate to deal with dirt and dust, but this is intriguing....did you select for the claimed additional horsepower, or just for dirt ingress?

I installed a Coober LM ECU for the mapping, My mechanic recommended the intake because of the dirt. I decat it because of the cat heating the rear shock too much. both mods took some weight out of the bike and gave significant power and throttle response. Now It pop wheelies in 3rd gear and it sounds like a real motorcycle.

Cool. Thanks for the response. I was going to do the Camel heat shield in order to keep the warranty and get some heat off the shock, but yeah, it gets REAL hot down there from the cat. Can't be good for the shock!
Definitely don't love the stock exhaust note (or engine sound, for that matter), but I do love the engine!

I did the Rottweiler power plate ($99) and Arrow mid pipe. Wow!!! What a difference! No remap required but I did let the bike idle for 12 mins. Also much better stock exhaust note over just the mid pipe. Very simple to install yourself as Rottweiler has outstanding instructional videos, instructions and customer service.

I have the arrow mid pipe and just did a D n A fabric oiled air filter. It breathes way better and required a grease bead on the rubber to keep the dust out. (Took 10m to install) I plan on checking it to see if any dust gets behind the oiled filter. I may switch to the Rottweiler filter. Pretty happy with sound and performance, so far.

Looks so nice and clean. Rottweiler performance products and costumer service is outstanding. I used the coober LM ECU, great results and it keeps it street legal even decated.

I'm stuck between the power plate and the full intake... I'm not planning on getting a power commander or anything like that but I do have a slip-on. Has anyone had the power plate and switched over to the full intake? if so, what are your thoughts on performance?

Just my opinion...if you're not planning to install some sort of fuel management system, I would not install a full intake or de-cat the exhaust. If you do, you will most likely get the performance you're expecting, but at what cost? There's no way to manage the air/fuel ratio and the stock ECU probably won't be able to compensate enough. With moving all that extra air, the bike is going to run very lean. Again...that's just my thoughts about it...others my have a different opinion.

Yes, probably a full intake and a decat is only a good idea if you install a RapidBike Evo or other ECU controller that can operate both in closed and un open loop.

Anyway, i just wanted to warn you about the RP full intake, cause there's a discussion un ADVrider forum about it, and It seems people have had problems with fine dust infiltration in dusty off road conditions, wich has lead to zero clearance in the intake valves.
It seems to be related to the characteristics of the filter used. Now RP has updated the Twin Air filters and they have thinner pores and be better. Also there're other options from Unifilter and Funnelweb filters that seems to do a better job than the original Twin Air filter from Rottweiler.

I don't wanna scare anybody, but it's just what I've been reading in ADVrider, and it's well documented.

In the other hand, i'm interested in the power plate to keep the OEM two pieces Seat (the PowerParts prefilter requires the one piece one). But the other they, i asked in a Facebook group if the bottom of the OEM seat could make contact with the head of the PowerPlate screws (those wich screws on the top of the airbox), causing some kind of damage or just some momentary deformation of the airbox during bumps or hard off roading.
Well, he first said that It didn't seem to happen, but later he said that he had checked the bottom of the seat and It had some marks/scratches from the screws.
I don't know if it's something minor, or if that can be avoided just fileing that contact points a little.
So, those of you with a PowerPlate, do you think It world be ok?

And, if any of you have a really seat, can you check if the bottom of it is raised compared to OEM seat?

Thank you in advance

It sounds like the bike will automatically adjust the mixture ratio due to its sensors (O2, MAP) and according to Rottweiler a tuner is not required.

That being said, I'll probably just go with the power plate to get the most filtration possible.

I'm happy with my power plate and there's no sign of damage or deformation to the airbox. I can also confirm that it filters dust, dirt, sand pretty [email protected] good. See my thread below:

Yes, i've heard only good things about the power plate.
Anyway, can you see any little superficial mark in the bottom of the base of the seat?

This is my best alternative without sacrificing performance and without manipulating the mix ratio.

Those seem good, but like with any other prefilter with no other mods, a little performance would be sacrificed.

I like these ones

Pre-filter is a good thing but I find it tedious to take care of and maintain two filters.

Wouldn't it be a better alternative to replace the main filter with "UNI Filter AU1448 ST from Touratech" which can also be used again and again. It has a long lifespan.
The filter is not disposed of when it is dirty, but washed out and re-oiled and used again and again.
