Yes it is.
I am not sure if PCV fits (not listed in PC site but some say it does fit), but PC3 does and also has accelerator pump.

It seems it is more complex than that. I must have more pops with the 90 vs 80. Also it makes extremely sensitive to lean-ness the trailing throttle at sea level. I will soon find some 80s and report...

Assuming that all is done correctly (no leaks etc) all I can suggest is to change float height. Decrease by 0.5mm and see if things are improved. Try also a 180 main instead of that 178.

Thanks.
Interesting concept since it makes the whole airbox active and not just the upper half. My problem would be the sealing of the bottom half (and the price of course)

My friend messaged me earlier on following a longer ride that his bike is short on power higher up in the revs. Therefore, it could be that stock mains are on the lean side.

Yes, an extra shim, but before doing that, check out first the experience of proper float height with needles at 2.
It might (and most likely) not be necessary at all to go up 1/2 position.
