First pic shows the top of the filter touching the tank, can kind of see the filter bulging out. Its the best pics I could take.



Second pic was the best I could take of the filter bulging out on the sides. The pic is taken on an angle so the bulging doesnt look too bad in the pic, but it does bulge out.

That's odd, PP. What kind of bike is that? SE, SM-R? Its obviously not fitting correctly and compressing the filter. I'd recommend you disassemble that and perhaps we can figure out whats wrong. Hard to tell by the pics. Off hand I would guess that you either have the wrong filter for your bike or that it may be installed backwards, you wouldn't be the first. The dzus tabs are on the right side of the bike, right?

Good call man, thanks. I took the tank off and thats the first thing I seen, the tabs on the "drivers" side of the bike.

Its your fault though, I got too damn excited to get the thing installed and didnt pull my head out of my ass first! If you made boring expensive products I wouldnt have bought one and wouldnt have installed it backwards!

Kidding, thanks, fits like a glove, bike sounds really mean like this! Cant wait to try it out!

Any of you guys getting dust into the carbs?
I did a gravel ride a few weeks ago and am now taking things apart to get ready for a trip to CO. lots of dust on the AL plate that came in from the plate/filter joint. It was clipped on properly both sides.
When I put it back on, I will put a grease seal on like with my dirtbikes, not a big deal just curious.

Also, where to get filter skins?

Are you sure about that? The thing is sealing on top and bottom as well as tightly around the carb neck with a very soft gasketing buna-n grommet. Its relatively impossible for anything to get in through there as long as its tight. This sort of sealing is what makes my plate unique, all the others simply sit atop a hard durometer x-ring.

I have had one case where there was a BMC filter installed previously that stretched the tabs of the velocity stacks and actually warped the bottom surface. This made for a loose seal that would leak. No fault of the plate. New velocity stacks cured that.

Post a pic! I want to see this.

the velocity stacks are sealed up tight. Dust infiltration was from around the edge of the plate
Pardon my MSPaint arrows
It stopped a lot of dust.



I had already brushed a lot of the dust off, but you can see some still there where it was leaking, especially around the plastic clip on the bottom of the pic.



The plate was quickly wiped off, but some traces remain with the same shape as the filter cage.



It was definitely clipped on tight at the tab, and both dzus fasteners were tight.

How's that 990 version coming? I have set of carbon pipes on the way and would love to open the airbox.

Thanks,

Laramie

Oh! I misunderstood. Yep. supposed to grease there!!! I use silicone and have never had a problem such as this. It looks like its filtering great where its supposed to, though!

Totally my fault, I haven't been mentioning it and have really got to get around to finishing the post #2 installation post. Sorry about that. Thanks so much for pointing this out.

Anyone who hasn't greased the seal needs to especially if they're running dirt.

Prototype Version 3.2 (I think I have it perfect this time), is about to get made. All goes well and I'll have production by the end of the month. Sorry for the delays, Been tough getting a 990 in the shop to test.

Glad I could help

I probably should have figured it out on my own as my dirtbikes have grease.

What does a guy use for grease? Would something like die electric grease work?

Im just trying to think ahead for when it comes down to cleaning the filter, I wouldnt want like axle grease, or grease that I use to grease the pins on my backhoe would I? haha.

I've used silicone grease, waterproof belray blue aluminum based grease, teflon Super Lube, and simply sprayed it down good and thick with Uni or ITG filter oil. Anything works, just has to be wet and sticky so nothing can eek by.
