I would prefer if the snapout lock wasn't centered in the middle of the compartment but perhaps right under the oem fuse block. Maybe i'll modify one to make it work like that. hum.....
The supplied fastener is flush and doesnt get in the way...of course you may have other uses for the real estate for something else, or not wish to unpack the glovebox before dismounting it. Something to keep in mind is that the Snapout plate offers a convenient place to mount other electrical gear, such as more terminals or fuses, either on its face or below it using an angle bracket. Next time I take the glovebox off i will have to cut/file two small slots for the fusebox cover catches to fit through...I think this will allow the cover to go back on. Maybe this is detailed in the instructions but I was a typical male and didnt read them...
Being able to leave the fusebox in place during airfilter/valve services etc is just another added convenience, as is the amount of space opened up by removing the airbox. Hmmm...I will have to check if I can access the front spark plug now....that would be a big bonus too.
My Dogbox will be used to keep spares - regulator, start relay, clutch and brake levers, or maybe a tube. Nice to know these things are with the bike at all times. I used to keep my tubes in my fairing "pockets", but the Safaris have me revising that...

Yes I have a fuse block installed in the compartment with a couple Deutsche connectors so that I can unplug it on the back side in 5 sec.
I'd like to keep it there. I could see about relocating it but… I like that access. Maybe I'll mount it on the back side… hum…

The front spark plug is accessible with tiny hands. I end up loosening the radiator a bit…

I have a fuze block in there too, and I don't have the handy disconnects.

It was in the way of the snap out, and was velcroed to the glovebox. I just replaced the Velcro with a ziptie run through a couple of holes in the bottom of the box to keep it in place; now if I want to take the glovebox off I just cut the ziptie and the fuzebox moves right out of the way. Gotta remember to replace the ziptie before the box goes back on, do up the dzus fastener then pull the ziptie tight.

I may look at relocating the fuzebox under the glovebox this winter but it's working fine for me this way for now.

Ok, just burnt though my first tank of gas with the new filter and MAP and all i gotta say is WTF?

low fuel light came on at 82 miles.

please tell me i've done something wrong because that is just unacceptable. power is great but being stranded because my bike cant make it to the next station is not cool.

what are you guys getting for MPG with the CPR filter?

thanks,

laramie

I once ran out of gas in 75 miles.......... and that was before the filter swap. Also before the 2-1 and aux tank........

Since the filter I haven't noticed much change in the 35-45 mpg I was getting before, once I adjusted the jets. It's quite wrist variable.

I sort of had the same problem but it turned out the fuel tap screw was just spinning. It would open and if you kept turning it would close again. 20 bucks for a new one.

So not much of a big difference and when you would drop your bike into water the intake is much easier to clean and dry with a CPR then with the original air filter box.

ok, this time i actually burned through the whole tank...

went 160 miles on 4.3 gallons of gas = 37.3 MPG

not too shabby considering i wasn't exactly what you would call light on the throttle. bike is running like a champ and i couldn't be happier. i bet on a nice, steady throttle ride i will easily get 40+ MPG.

laters,

laramie

This Rottweiler setup with all the extras looks so good. But I'm still wondering about few things which are keeping me away from the "pay with paypal" -button.

How do you prevent water entering the engine when washing the bike or leaving it standing in the rain? Or is that a problem at all?

People driving in places where they use salt on the road, do you have any signs of corrosion on your carbs / tb's?
