I have never been so happy with a Motorcycle.

Now that I have installed the Termignoni Carbon slipon, the Sprint P08 filter and the RapidBike Race module and put some real miles on it, the bike is just astounding.

I took it out on Friday morning in around 70 degree weather (about 20 degrees less than it has been recently) and had some completely clear roads that let me really ride her hard.

I'm not sure if it's a characteristic of a large bore twin engine, compared to a 4 cylinder like my BMW S1000RR, but the 1299 works best when you keep the engine spinning hard between the gears; it seems to react best to just ripping it through the gears with zero let-up. With my mods, the 1299 is FRIGHTENINGLY fast... My S1000RR WAS A MONSTER, A BEAST above 11,000 rpm, but now my 1299 is even faster... It 's BONKERS!!. Now the midrange is even MORE nuts and it takes every bit of my body weight over the front, plastered to the tank to keep the front wheel down in 3rd and 4th. Running DWC level 1, it will lift the front in 2nd and not put it down until 5th if I pin it and rip through the shifts, shifting at, or very near redline in each gear.

I have already posted my opinion on the handling and brakes, but with the changes I have made, I am over the moon happy with the 1299. It has the look, the character and the outright berserk speed that I hoped it would have, way back when I put my deposit down on faith.

Any of you who want your bike to be truly unleashed at a reasonable price, with very little screwing around, you might want to try the package I (and a bunch of others on this forum) have done... Trust me, you will be happy.
Thanks from karrl, Phl, YTURAN and 6 others

Sounds badass! What's the difference in the sprint p08 filter and the regular filter if you don't mind me asking? How much? And where from hahahah

That's right. Everything he said happens because of that air filter

I bought a MWR one and none of that happened for me. Sad.

The stock filter is tremendously restrictive.. In another post, I did an unofficial test using my leaf blower. Almost zero air got through the stock filter, while a relative hurricane came through the P08. As I said, it's standard on the Superleggera. Only around $70 I think?

Cheers.

You have to take the tank off, which is easier than it sounds.

Maybe a stupid question, but if the A/F ratio is controlled by the ECU...how does allowing more air through the airbox change what's happening in the engine?
