After reading this I decided to go back to the original filters. 👍 replaced it today 🙂welcome JP, some nice bikes you have here! I have seen some 916s and 748s going up in flames, those after markets air filters are shit.
or lets rephrase it, the combination of excessive filter oil, shower injectors and that these ladies like to fire into the airbox if not perfectly clocked...not worth the money
Thank you very much for the advice 😊well, not sure how much you have done on your 916 and how much experience you have maintaining it. its a hell of a bike if regularly maintained and the set up is done correctly one of the best V2s to push around corners to my knowledge. I would recommend to clock the engine once properly, check the rockers (coating of the opener and closer) and the cam shafts too. The valve clearance is very important, its more crucial so keep that in mind if you do the clearance checks, if you go to wide you will lose power and she will run like a bag of sh... if you go to tight the closer shim clips will break or the cams will be damaged. The clutch likes it open, depending on your ride style ...but either you clean the dust out every now and then or fit an open cover. I would not use any oil thinner than 15w, unless you ride that thing under 0deg C. I think thats all, I love my Duc, thats one of the most reliable bike I ever had (not my 1st Duc tho)....troubles are usually caused by bad mechanics....
enjoy, I guess right now far to cold for that thing
