    my new airbox mod

    got the idea from a member at af1,its cost me 10 to do purchasing xl door seal rubber and getting the old dremmel out,ive cut out the top part off the airbox to create the seal at the front which makes it fail proof for any dirt and crap to enter,smeared silicone grease around seal to further improve.i havent finished yet just making the bracket to hold the filter down and then its done also fitting a new pipercross filter

    Wow, that looks damn good. Is there some kind of glue on the other side? Your rubber seal was a great idea because it looks alot stiffer and sturdier than most of the others that I've seen.

    you know that you need to seal the top of the air filter, do you? anyway the sealing looks great but i am quite sceptic about the seal on the lower side of the airbox (on pictures on the left) so make sure there is no space there

    ive also put some 8mm foam tubing inside the seal to further improve and reinforce,ive smeared grease around the seal and closed the tank the seal leaves a nice consistent smear right around the tank,
