Looking for some pannier racks, I want ones that sit forward, are the Dalby ones the best (and still available?), or what else is recommended? Don't want the SWMotech ones.

G2

Anybody know of a dealer for the G2 throttle cams here is Oz?
Or is it a USA purchase only?
Cheers

Wilmo - I have Dalby moto racks and Andy Strapz bags. They are a really good combination. Give Laurie (at DM) a call on 07 46606666 to enquire.

Uni Filter

Is there any more news on availability of the uni-filters for the 990. Does any one have an opinion on the suitability of these items? They look alright to me

My understanding is that you can order direct from uni - or from your local KTM dealer. About $100 IIRC. ....and soon to be 950 specific as well!!

Ill be trying one to see how it stacks up against my current paper/prefilter arrangement. If its good I'll be modifying the airbox to let more in than the snorkel will allow.

well Gee1 I'm sure everyone will have a different opinion to me but my thoughts are that by using a unifilter as well as the std filter isn't the ideal situation. A unifilter has a reasonably dense foam and so offers a certain amount of airflow restriction on top of the flow restriction of the std filter.
Another problem I see with the unifilter is that it lowers the air-intake height which can be a problem fording rivers. I actually use a self made sock from fuel tank foam which is very open and has very little restriction, I soak the sock in waterproof filter oil then ziptie it onto the original KTM rear facing snout. In my experience using this method, the original stays cleaner for a lot longer as the dust is trapped in the sock which is open enough that it doesn't any additional restriction to the engine.

well obviously I haven't been following this thread closely enough, i was under the impression you were asking about just adding a vertical foam sock in addition to the std filter setup so my comments aren't really relative.

Went for a quick spin this arvo.
Feel the difference straight away, way more progressive and softer at the start.
Ill do a few hundred k's on the weekend and see if I need to go further with it.
Dont forget that you have to cut the cable slot as well.

Great idea mate!!! If you find someone with a "real" G2 cam you can just copy the profile or modify to your likeing as you've done

I run the G2 400 cam and its awesum! an essential mod for efi 990's.
