Finally got in a little fun time...
Few more detailed pics
Thoughts, comments, concerns...?
I have the Heiden one of very similar design and this looks great too!! What element did you use for the screen?
Filter is for multiple KTM applications
I like it. One observation.... if the filter is a snug fit in the block, the o-ring isn't really necessary, It's a suction filter, and a low pressure one at that.... so no blowby concerns. Although I like your "attention to detail," you could omit that and save time and money making the final product. Unless your letting a computer cut these? Computer don't get paid by the hour.
At any rate, I like it. You have an out the door cost estimate yet?
This is the only high tech device I can handle. Garage is all turnin' handwheels & readin' dials (do cheat a bit with DRO on the mill).
That O-ring is as much a way to allow for any "manufacturing discrepancies" as it is a seal. Besides at a couple bucks a 10 pack they don't really increase cost a bunch.
Want to keep the cost as reasonable as possible without going backwards. Making a bunch at a time helps cut down on set-up time, running multiple parts per op. Thinkin' if we can stay in the $50ish range may be doable.
Well I'm in.
Me too - put me down for three.
What's the spring for?
The spring is to hold the filter snug in the intake end, makes up for any minor variables from plate to plate. Between the spring & the O-ring they will both hopefully help with a bit of vibration isolation.
Vibration - on a Yamaha XS650?
Come now my boy....what on earth are you talking about?
Looks great Beags, I would be in for a couple of them.
Beags, you do great work, so put me down for at least one.
Look good I would be interested in one
Got a list started of those interested....best get the chips flyin'
...you swarf maker you...
I would put my name on that list. Previous parts I got from Beags were superb!
$50 is a fair price. Heidens the only competition you have and he's at 41 euro ($46) plus shipping.
It's been a month... any update on these, Beags? No rush, mind you... inquiring minds want to know...
Peckin' away at small batch of 'em when time permits. This being one of our busy times at work (HVAC guy by trade) and getting everything snuggled in for the big freeze puts a damper on garage time.
We are all counting on you pulling it off....
