Any news / update on a 990 Adventure setup? I have a 2012 990R.

Thanks

I asked the same question, and ive heard many people say that this type of filter is superior, especially since you can wash and reuse it as much as you want.

Prices around my area, this setup costs as much as 3 stock filters, which would take me a year and a half to recoupe that cost. I paid a premium for jetting cause I got anxious (shoulda waited and bought my jets with the filter setup) so all in all in 3 years I will have this comeplete system paid for, in savings. Thats riding at my current pace, and I plan to step it up a bit as well!

To me it made sense.

Happy to see such a good solution available! Just placed my order here (and at Amazon for breather filters). I've used ITG in the past on racecars and loved 'em. Still have a bottle of oil somewhere, I guess I better go find that...

Since my jets are stock, sent a PM on more purchases.

FYI, most dirt bike do not have the carbs inside the air box and get filthy on the outside.

I can't speak to the 950 off road as mine is a SM and never ever sees off road, but my CRF get muddy all time

Noob question, there is only one crank case vent right? The big one that comes from the "drivers" side of the engine? (in my pic, the red arrow, and its the line that comes out on top, went into the airbox) The only thing that is screwing me up, is I seen thumper? had posted a pic of the breathers he got, and he had three of them.

Thats right. He also optionally added filters for his carb vents.

I added a breather to the crankcase vent and zip tied it to the frame. Didn't add anything to the carbs, not even a hose.

Cool thanks!

I have a foam filter from a king quad sitting around that I am going to use on the crankcase tube for the time being. I should have been more on the ball and ordered a filter for it, but c'est la vie!

Im excited to get this thing all together. Im doing a few mods at once and it should be pretty bad ass when Im all done.

Excellent, I have a new to me '07 Super Duke 990 that needs some mods and would love a cheaper option than the current crop of $300+ airbox replacements.

OK so I bought my jets from Ken at advmachines, and this is what he is getting me to start out with.

My bike is a 2006 950SM, has fmf cans on it, sas delete, canisterctomy, and of course this intake. My elevation is about 1500 feet.

45 pilot, 65 IAJ, #3 needle clip, 3mm floats, 180 and 185 mains. That was his reccomendation for me to start with, and today when my little girl is napping I hope to get the jetting all installed and I should get my exhaust piece back (was getting it rewelded) tomorrow, and hope to try the bike out a little this weekend.

Any thoughts?

Interested in how the mains feel, I have same cans and setup other than 70 IAJ and FP needles. I am at 500 feet, but ride up to 2,500 feet on my regular weekend rides. My mains are little under your setup

I installed the filter and SportingWood provided Factory Pro kit after it arrived via FedEx yesterday. Nice stuff Chris!

Bike is a 2006 950 SM with Akro Slip Ons (early style) and DB reducer installed, both "-dectomies" performed. All riding close to sea level.

Per the kit provider, I set up the bike like so:

170F/172R mains
Factory Pro #2 needles in the 3rd clip - both OEM washers in place (thin on the pointy end, thick on the dull end)
45 slows
Floats at 4mm
Idle Mixture Screws at 1.75F-1.5R turns out
Carb Air lines do not have a filter yet, but one is coming. So the y-connector is installed and the airline is pointing down.

Synched carbs just fine (was still good from the last time performed) and took the bike for a ride. Did not have to change the idle speed setting.

The low end (under 4K RPM) seems a bit dull and may be running slightly rich, but 4-8K runs very strong and seems like an improvement. Much less on/off throttle snatching was evident at low speed. A fair amount of mild backfire is present when jumping off throttle at and above 4K, which I would like to eliminate.

Any suggestions from those that have gone before on the next steps?

Ok I finally have this setup installed and everything back together on my bike, except the seat.

One thing I noticed is when I installed the tank, the filter was a little too high, so when I tightened the tank down, it squished the filter a little bit from the top, towards the bottom (if that makes sense?)

Is this going to be ok? Thought I had better ask before I take it out for a spin!

I have my jetting installed now, my dr beans fuel pump mod, and some new to me fmf cans I bought off of here. With this intake the bike doesnt even sound like the same bike anymore!

Hmm not sure how to take a picture of that, with the tank installed.

Invision the underneath part of the tank squishing the top of the filter downwards to the intake? Ill run out there and see if I can take some sort of a pic, but I can barely see it myself, just through hoses and the frame and whatnot.
