Sporting Wood air filter, and Rottweiler "Dog House" and snap-out?

Ordering a Sporting Wood air filter and was wondering??? Has anyone added the Rottweiler "Dog house" for extra storage?? Plus Rottweiler offers a cool Snap out bracket to remove the glove box in seconds...

Anyone tried to mismatch the two brands??

Thanks Smitty

Same filter different base plates.

I'm not a fan of the storage box behind the air filter.
I'm thinking the increased air flow without the box there
is better than the small amount of additional storage.

Haven't done the same yet, but it is on my list of winter projects. I have the ITG filter and a red CPR pre filter. I'm going to add the doghouse and the quick snap out thingy. Chris has the full kit on his bike at the Steamboat Springs KTM Rally, and I saw it there. Nice stuff.

I have 1 of each filter setup--Sportingwood and CPR. I havent tried the snap out or box yet. From what I can tell, either would fit with either filter. Neithe item attaches to the filter or base plate.

FWIW

I am still waiting on my ITG filter, but it was my intention to do this specifically so I could add the dog house (and likely the quick access). Space is precious on my 990 and every cubic millimeter is accounted for on long trips.

Sporting wood's filter and CPR filter are idendical. Its made by ITG. CPR must have commision them to spary their logo on it.

The plates are essentially the same size too.

this filter comparison was already done on another thread
I can't seem to find the pix - but there was a definite difference in the
size of the foam cells - not just a paint on logo.

No difference in foam densities that I can see. I have both and compared them side by side.

ITG sells filters for many uses, and they build filters to specific specs if you have the money..

I like their filters with a wrap just to make cleaning easy, (I use them on sprint cars.. ) makes it easy to get the filter back between sessions by swapping the filter wraps between sessions just to get the clay off.. :)

Near as I can tell both have a pretty good design, and each has a bit of their own salt..

BTW I've also been using these filters on a variety of bike motor powered cars for years.. Just sad it didn't occur to me to do it on the bike.. LOL


Cheers
Dave

I have spoken with both these guys. Both are helpful and seem like really good guys. Too bad it has to come to this finger pointing and namecalling.

I don't see the copycat issue. Guys have been bolting filters to base plates for years. Look at the ITG website. They also sell an automotive kit which includes a steel plate, which looks a lot like these 2 suppliers, and their filter. SW uses an aluminum plate and CPR plastic. So who copycatted who? I'm no patent expert but it seems clear that this is pretty common practice.

I am a businessman and understand the need to recover your costs--in this case R and D for the cool products being offered for sale. I also believe in the power of the free market. If you want protection of your ideas from use by others, you should patent them, if they are unique enough to qualify.

I appreciate the fact that both these guys are enthusiasts and are offering great products with that passion behind them. But in the end, Business is business. And buying based on perceived value is a good thing.

As to the foam density discussion, I am going to pull my filter and again compare....Guess a filter wrap could be used if there is any difference or finer filtering is needed

I am more or less referring to the fact that 10 years went by without anything like our product hitting this particular market and within months of releasing our Rottweiler Intake there is another that looks exactly the same as ours? Slamming our design at the same time?? This is what chaps my seat cover really, and the “same thing” has been done to death by mostly people that bought into the “same thing” idea. When you spend the time and money to create something different and better, you will defend it too. Trust me on that one. Just my friendly and human 2 cents.
