To be fair - the lack of lip was our (I include myself) error. We never told them there was a lip & tbh AFAICR we never even showed them a bike first hand.If Ramair had put a lip on the filter and made them out of decent rubber they would probably stay on without the clamps.
I am just a wee bit far away for a visit - and Colin was passing through some upheaval. I'm sure that Ramair would appreciate a visit - and if time permits when I'm over for my dads' operation - I will.
Colin measured up and supplied a 3D rendition - He'd already done a prior design he had made and we know the dimensions were correct - The first version (ITG) used the Triumph rubbers but because of this did not fit under the claw.
I have the very first prototype RamAir on my R3 - and it's never tried to pop off. This said mine came without the wiring extension or hose clamps - so I was inventive there anyway - and reused the Triumph clamps using a longer screw.
The rubber I have to believe was a bad batch. They make OEM stuff for AMG and Aston Martin as well as race teams. I guess they maybe make the filters up in batches of 10 or so.
