All i ride anymore is dunes.. So i made mine...I have been waiting for this company (HRF) to start making them for the 2014... but so far nothing yet... so i just made the same thing... I have used the behind the fender one they have listed here..

buy the behind the rear fender mount listed above... I have that one also... It isnt as good as the ones off the side, but they stay in place and out of the way...well worth the 35$

 

I keep the rear fender one from HRF in my trailer and bring it to the dunes just to let people borrow it after they show up with the one that mounts to the axle 

 

I am sure you could call HRF and ask them to make one and they would be happy to if they have a 2014 bike available.. i had theirs on my 2012 yz450, and a few other bikes... they make a nice piece and for the price it is well worth it..

 

IF they start making them i will buy another one for backup... but i have been running this style for 6 years and have yet to destroy one. All though i have the same 2 friends that have destroyed them multiple times :banghead:

 

 

Make sure you get an Outerwears for the filter... The one for the 2012 works perfectly.. the first time you go wreck on a upslope the airbox fills with sand... the outerwares is the ticket and then all the sand just falls out the hole in the bottom of the airbox.. i dont ride anywhere with the outerwears... and protect that engine vent that runs to the bottom of the frame... It is a sand sucker for sure.. i routed mine into the airbox (but this still up for debate) and have ran my 2012 and my 2014 this way... you just got to drain the moisture out of it every once and awhile

 

And a stabilizer is awesome also!!
