Cobra,

Thanks for the great write up!!!!

I just installed my MWR filter tonight. Your pics really helped. I have to say this was a little labor intensive for a air filter install. My 1198 was easy, this was not by comparison. More just a PITA with the gas tank and unhooking everything and it's a dark hole in there so you need some good lighting.

Anyway, got it in. If you don't like to work on your bike or do things like change oil and what not, you probably don't want to do this. If you like tinkering it is very doable with these great directions and some patience. Started the bike up after the install and it's running, so I guess I hooked everything back up right...lol.

Haven't had a chance to ride it yet....hopefully soon if the rain ever stops.

Thanks again to Cobra for the awesome directions and to Gunny and Bellisimoto for the excellent service and the Filter!

PS this did not take 15 minutes (don't remember who said that)....lol. Maybe if you do this a lot...mine took quite a bit longer.
Thanks from Gunny Fitz

placing saran wrap over the throttle bodies (or a wadded shop towel?) would seem like an ok idea prior to removing the oem filter. was the rubber gasket around the MWR filter not a necessity?

thanks again for the how to....nicely done.
Thanks from SeerreuS

Just an update and another round of thanks. I referred my dealer tech to this page for advice on how to install the MWR filter, as he was installing a 14T front sprocket and the filter at the same time.

He was able to do it by himself in 10 minutes start-to-finish thanks to your excellent tutorial. It fit perfectly in his opinion, maybe my airbox was a bit larger than spec

Saran Wrap or something might be a good idea just in case. Rubber gasket? Talking about the one on the very top where the tank seals? Yes that is needed.

Just had the MWR HE filter installed and I can definitely feel the difference in power. Had it done with my 1000 km service and loving it. Sounds different and pulls different. Definitely feels stronger.

My mechanic agreed that the engine revs freer. This is all by feel without any solid data but I'm happy nonetheless.

Stock map or Termi map? If you still have the stock map could that make the difference?

Maybe the stock map can't compensate the added air?
