Nowhere near as good a job as Chris. However, what I think we really need are the stacks to be modified to include a mounting for the plate. Should be easy enough if Chris can find the time.

It's interesting that you've managed to maintain the original throttle cables. For me the plate was bang in the way of the front cable mount. Maybe my plate is further forward to account for the smaller SM tank clearance at the rear? My solution was to rebuild the front mount to make the cable approach less vertical and make a linkage to join the throttle spindles of the front and rear carbs. Works a treat and with a much lighter throttle action too, now that there's only one set of cables!

Pictures to follow when I next take off the tank to install the new filter. Sorry, but the weather is way too good now to be spent in the workshop!! The squashed K&N filters will have to do for now...

Paul, can I ask where you found that air filter? it's not Rottweiler, is it?

The filter is a ITG, and can be purchased from a few places that I know of. The 'Dome' filter is harder to get than the standard straight sided version. CPR fab (Rottweiler) to my knowledge, does not offer the filter just by itself. SW7 offers the ITG filter systems for the 950/990/1190 and I am pretty sure will sell just the filter.

Yes, completely correct; it's an ITG filter. Buy them from a car motorsports shop and you shouldn't have any difficulty finding what you need.

I'm in France, and I've repeatedly found it's better to shop in the UK (efficient mail-order service and lower prices). I use, and cannot recommend highly enough, Merlin Motorsports

Keep the faith.

Nice solution Paul, that's exactly what the Keihin part does. Much nicer, straighter run with lighter action.

FCR's + Choke + Velocity Stacks with Rott filter....

Gregor / Chris

I just wanted to chime in here and stay that I am very interested in what you guys have done here, been watching this thread with great expectation for over a year now.

I would love to jump to the FCR's on my 07 SM....would be the best next big upgrade but the chokes are holding me back. I will say for sure that with a choke solution, I will be buying the full package for sure

With the stacks not fitting the SM and then the talk of a custom Rott filter is just the icing on the cake. Keep up the great work.

If you build it...we will buy...;)

Great work guys, I always look forward to the updates.

All the best...Kent
