If I were you I won't make any modification to the filter if you plan to retain the stock exhaust. Let the bike "as is", or pick a PowerParts foam filter to avoid dust in the airbox.

Have fun with your new bike, ciao,

The storm was in West Yorkshire while coming back from Newcastle...however I heard that in Rome wasn't any better!

So you are suggesting not to change the stock seat. I will use the bike for long trips where consistent off road is planned (Africa as I have done many times before or similar. Going to Albania in June) so I would prefer a wider seat. Do you recon the ergo seat are money through in the drain? Renazco is blody expensive!!!!

Foam Filter??? Is that any better than the paper? I am not planning to change the exhaust only because a money issue. In fact it is my understanding that the only one that makes any difference is the Akra (as I have on the 990 and before on the 950)...that is bloody expensive as well. If I'll find one on ebay I might buy it! Could you, or anyone else< confirm that GPR and FMF despite much cheaper are not worth the change/expense from the original?

Finnaly, and I am ashame of do you change the mapping? I forgot to ask the dealer and it is not written in the owner book!
