990 screening

The wind buffeting is my only real complaint with the 990, everything else is pretty cool. Fitting a 1190 screen if possible could be the answer to this buffeting, perhaps.

Holding your weight!

Finally found a spare hour or so & installed some .60 weight fork springs in my 2011 990 adventure & after a short test ride on some very pot holed gravel roads it's a huge improvement as expected.

Rottweiler

Hi every one just a quick question, does the Rottweiler air filter system require any extra tuning to get full benefits on a 990 ?
