Rottweiler intake kit

Any Rottweiler air filter users? If so, interested to hear you opinion as to whether they offer any real performance benefit over stock.

Yes, I've got one fitted to my SE along with their 2in1 exhaust. I did both plus a rejet at the same time and yes, there's a marked difference in performance but be aware:
1- there is some engine noise associated with the filter system; you'll hear the engine internals more and you'll get that sucking / blowing sound from the crankcase breather so be prepared. I don't get too fussed because I enjoy the sound of heavy throttle and high revs too much to notice the rest
2- some say that the bike becomes more vulnerable to water ingress if crossing very deep water - haven't had a problem yet and I've crossed some deep waters
3- your fuel consumption will increase but only because you won't be able to help yourself from constantly using your right hand to twist the throttle a lot
4- be prepared for an ear to ear grin and people wondering why you look so happy all the time

Incidentally, I've had this intake fitted to previous bikes as well; 990advR and a 990SMR

Hi Rob,

Opinion is its a must do mod, all the bikes were so restricted to meet such regs that I reckon you've got 10 horses waiting to be unleashed :) answers to your PM below but very happy with my bike setup way smoother, power all the way through just need another gear in the box! Sounds great from intake to out nice to cruise on a motorway fantastic off road with great power delivery.

Remeber ive got the full 2 into 1 low slung gpr system, complete dyno air fuel to view and re-jet.

What's your opinion of the Rottweiler air filter set up after a few years ownership?
Overall good, trying to find a downside, its well made and easy to maintain just like any other foam filter.

Do the carbs suffer from being exposed to dust and mud?
Not if you clean them :) honestly they are still pretty well sheileded by the tank you would really be wading in crap to get them covered.

How did the set up work for your Morocco trip?
Excellent, took 7 pre-oiled filter skins for the 14 days to change them every other day didn't need that many when taking the skin off the filter looked great still. I'm convinced the bike ran cooler compared to Newsh's as it could breathe better.

Is there any real power benefit?
Yep the dyno compared to standard showed increase throughout, cant find it to show you now will try and dig it out.

Did the engine run smoother as Rotti claim?
Yes that and running a smudge on the rich side.

Happy to let you have a ride if you are london area any time.

I'm Running the Rottweiler 2in1 mid-pipe with his yoshimura muffler but rather than using the standard yoshimura designed for the 1190 Adventure, I'm running the slightly shorter (about 5cm shorter) yoshimura intended for the 1290 Superduke R.

I'm relocating to the UK for two years this August and if I end up bringing my SE with me, you are welcome to see it in the flesh depending on where you reside...as it stands, I'm planning to bring my 530 rally bike with me but that may be changing for the SE over the next few weeks as my mind toggles back and forth with which bike to bring (yes, truly a first world problem).

I have just fitted the Rottweiler 2-1 mid pipe with the Yoshi end can, I bought it from Alon. I already had a 2-1 mid pipe and a GPR end can on the bike ,fitted by the previous owner, stock airbox and jetting
My thoughts are, I already knew the bike was running rich at the bottom. After fitting the Rottweiler set up, the bottom end is far stronger and you can run the bike down to 35mph in top without complaint. The top end is stronger as well.
For me the biggest improvement is the lack of heat around the mid pipe compared to my previous pipe, this is obviously the restriction caused by the old 2-1.
So a win win for me, my only worry is I planned to fit a free flow intake set up, but the bike is running so well I'm afraid I might loose something in the process.

I don't think you'll lose top end with the intake Andy - just make sure you don't end up running lean up top as the difference in intake air volume between the open element filters and the stock box is staggering.
