The Stealth is very noisy.....

.... but produces power ne?  :thumleft:
Mine does, awesome piece of kit but yeah, a tad loud....
Ask Jaco to make you a quiet-insert, or wear some earplugs  :P

Not sure. I think so. Rode the bike home from the dealer (5km) and put the Stealth on so it has been on from the beginning.
For the price, oh yes.

Jaco?

So talking RG Twin air filters. I have made these cage inserts . I think its about the best solution to the filter cage problems of fitting to the top of the RG airbox .

Yes I have one that Ian has sent me and they look great - just not had a chance yet to try it out.  :thumleft:  I did take the OEM one a while back and cut the tabs off making it similar and have been using it for some months and it works great.

That's nice Ian, but incomplete, sorry ........ how about also a thicker outer (the visible) plate?
Mine bends at times due to the limited mounting space, so a thicker (same, verbatim shape etc, just thicker) plate would be handy to have also  :thumleft:

Also, and No, haven't checked this vast archive, perhaps this will fit the 690's also?
If so (I think it will....) then you may want to change the Title of this thread to include the attention if not attract 690 owners  ;)

Maybe, maybe not..... but two 'lips' with holes for the studs will do 2 things:
- keep the inner frame at the correct location hence also at the correct theight
- prevent the current one from going askew if not bending out of the way


Besides, these would not affect cost I think, but would require an additional bend  ;)

 :imaposer: I tried a different base . It never worked . It was too fiddly . This is the best solution IMO. And simple.

No - that is precisely the problem that causes the frame not to sit flush and flex and can allow ingress of dust.

 :biggrin:  The reality is I already have tried the design with my version and they work great.

I went for a ride on Sunday. During the ride i noticed my clutch leaver loosing more and more pressure. When i got home i opened up the slave cylinder to find the O ring was destroyed . I am aware of the O ring issues on these bikes. The O ring was replaced by a shop in Cape town at 10000 KMS  it is now on 16000 KMS . After a bit of research ,I ask the question what makes the Oberon slave so special. The principal is all the same. I gather its all in the piston and what O rings are used for the 5.1 brake fluid. Where i believe the problem starts.   So it appears the EPDM  O ring must be to hold back the 5.1 brake fluid , and the Viton O ring to hold back the hot engine oil.  So the EPDM O ring is not over heating. Or doing  two jobs, to put it simple.  The soft rubber cover i think was put there to combat the heat from the engine oil. So now is not needed. I set out to make my own piston with the two grooves. And it is now in my bike and working perfectly. It is a problem getting aluminium and price. So i will be making more out of a different type high heat tolerant plastic material . which i have.
