Mine bends in the middle as pictured below, 3 emails to Powercell with detailed pictures and reaching out for support with no reply back as of yet on day 3 after the original email.. i am fully aware the pre filter goes in there as well, but it doesn't cover all the way down to where the filter kinks under the pressure of clasping it shut..
I feel as if i traded a faulty stock filter for a faulty aftermarket filter.. I don't know if i just got a defective one or what..
Customer service isn't so good…

-Ken is very informative and I have read multiple post of his, this in this isn't a knock against him or his credibility.. I'm just giving honest feedback of a product and service from Powercell.. many people's comments suggest a Uni is the way to go, i just wished it magically solved my problems as it has for so many others.

Well, working closely with Uni-Filter of Australia, I've decided to address both of these issues. We now have the latest model Uni-Filter in stock, packaged without the intake snorkel filters. And to help those who travel long days in very dusty conditions, we've even included a 2nd pre-filter!

Saving the best part for last, we want everyone to be able to afford this vital protection... so we're offing this specially packaged kit for only $49.95! It's called the PowerCell Performance Off-Road Uni-Filter kit and we have plenty in-stock.

I know this seems like a big ol' ad... and the admin can delete it if they like... but we just want to give something back to the members here on a issue that we feel should not be ignored a moment longer.









Regards ~ Ken

Hey Frontiers, this is the first I've heard anything about you having a problem... haven't received a single e-mail. What address are you writing to? Did you buy this from PowerCell, direct from Uni-Filter or from another source? Looking at your picture I can't clearly see what's kinking, but the pre-filter does fit snuggly within the main filter and it's required for the filter to fit properly.



Regards ~ Ken

The Rottweiler setup is nice, just odd that thy are only replacing the rear intake. Or you can cut the stock one down....

Would not cut the stock Stack and if I remember correctly, RotW went lower stack due to the fitment of their top filter unit. You can switch to the shorter stacks they now sell but it will rob you of mid range and give you more on topend power, this is why so many Superbikes run adjustable velocity stacks now, the length changes power delivery. I've seen it work when I fitted YEARS ago Factory Pro Velocity stacks to my R1 race bike, dyno print out was amazing...mid range on longer stacks had a HUGE gain.

Just another data point...

Got my UNI KIT from Powercell today (thank you). Cracked the airbox on my '14 1190R ~ 1,500 miles. 100% dust free. That said, I would expect that to be the case with only ~1,500 miles.

I installed the UNI kit anyway.

Matt.

KTM went to bat for me

So squeaky wheel gets the grease. Bike is in there with 1600 miles for leaking right side cover like others. They also warrantied the head bearings that were already loose. ( be careful if yours is loosening up.) Mine were loose at 1500 miles. And now I bitched about the dirt in the intake from just street riding and now KTM paying for new DNA off road filter and all the costs for install. I still wont trust that filter, and installing my new UNI, but now at least there aware and its noted on the history of the bike. WOO HOO now at least they are making people aware and KTM stepping up for us here in Oregon.

I think the Unifilter probably offers the best protection, but I just wasn't happy with the power loss. I bought another one and installed only main filter element: no socks or pre-filter, and RTV lids instead of foam gasket(don't like the additional height or possibility of foam breaking off and getting sucked into TB's) I even squeezed all the oil out of it that I could, but it definitely had weaker throttle response, which was far more noticeable than the ~5whp peak loss.

I'm now running the DNA, and it is much better. As long as you seal the lids around clean side area with copious grease or preferably RTV, it should be good to go. Time will tell.

I think the foam element just has too much restriction for the small opening in the stock airbox. Removing the airbox altogether and having one large foam filter obviously negates this issue.
