I would think the black plastic air ducts are no longer needed.....

Plus i see other things in the photo....

Looks great. the spacing between the two quick disconnects looks long. might just be the picture. A third disconnect right in the middle would seal for sure, but I have all the confidence in CPR and have had no prior issues with any others so I'm good if they are good.

I like the design of the fresh air intakes at least it gets the air moving under the tank, I suppose they could be removed if you don't want them.

I don't run the snorkels now and think the air flow has improved.

I agree these motors do respond better with more air & the STD intakes are restricting the STD air box as in flowing high speed volumes of air through the filter, we have picked up some good torque gains on the 1290 with more air & custom PCV mapping. http://www.ktmsmt.com/viewtopic.php?...6511&start=250

You right mate, looking at the 1190 video again it seems the 1190 has a square filter & the 1290 has a round one.

Really ?
Would the engine not struggle or be restricted getting air in via a pretty well enclosed space ?

Just wonders me if the intake snorkels do not force to much air directly into the filter.
See comment pdxmotorhead

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...761703&page=17

A reflector inbetween the snorkel and airfilter so the cold air is flowed over and the side of the airfilter is maybe a good way?.

I rekon it's a hit... as far as the snorkels go their made for higher speeds are'nt they, like over 130kph thats when they come into play ...this can't be simulated on a normal dyno. So if your not into speed then your not gonna need them , but then why did you buy the 1190.

Thumbs up for Rottwieler ..RUFF!

Without the snorkles the air I believe actually flows into and across the engine now dispersing heat much better as the snorkle opening is still there just not funneled directly into the air box

The large opening in the air box gulps big amounts of air without the snorkles.....no issues at any speed so far. The snorkles are small at the opening and big at the box....

Are the velocity stacks needed at all? Looks like the rear one has been removed? Clearance issue with the air filter, maybe?

The stacks I believe are needed for better performance.
