Unifilter for 1190

Does anyone know if the Unifilter requires a fuelling mod on the 1190? Cheers.

As far as I know it does not.

Hi Stromcat,

Myles from Unifilter Australia here. No there is no fuelling mod required when fitting our kit.
Cheers

Is it true that top speed decreases when Unifilter is installed?

We have not had feedback as such. All feedback has been very positive. We have never tested the bike at the top speed. For everyday riding there should be no issue. The bike is an adventure bike not a race bike. This filter was designed to fix a major dust issue while maintaining the best possible air flow. The filter was designed to suit the original bike. If someone has experienced a loss of top end power I would also think the bike may have had other changes like exhaust. If this is the case you should have the bike retuned to suit. I hope this helps.

I often wonder where this fucking rubbish starts?

The thing will do in excess of 220kph, why would anyone want it to go faster, unless they have very small balls!!

I've seen this, so I was asking at the source, given the occasion. At least should stop the rumors.

I personally don't care at all about going at 270kph, but if top speed decreases, it means the filter affects power. That's good to know, even if you don't care about it.

My uni filter arrived this morning (Wednesday), great service as I only ordered it Sunday night. It looks a lot better than the standard one and for peace of mind it gives me, it more than compensates for the price which was quite reasonable. So overall no issues and who cares if top end is slightly reduced. It is still plenty fast enough to have the bike impounded for a long while and lose your license for even longer.

I'm not sure they are available yet. Another inmate hoped to hear from UNI in OZ and availability for the 2014.
I think only 13my is available.

Unifilter USA is a different company than Unifilter AU. After a call, I found that the USA company did not sell the pre-filter for the Tiger 800XC, so I had to order directly from AU. I wonder if the same is true of the kit for the 1190?

I'm pretty sure there has been no drop in performance, it still reaches the redline in all the gears i have tried so far!!

Someone knows where to get the Uni filter in Europe? When I follow directions from the AU site, I am redirected to some store in Canada...
