Has anyone else considered stuffing some foam into the airbox slots on their wr450 after removing the airbox snorkels?  I'm just thinking ahead for deeper puddles/creek crossings and thinking about keeping water where it belongs--on the outside.

Foam will just slow down the enevitable.


Close them off if you are concerned.

I agree.

There is no way to keep water out AND have a halfway functional flowing airbox.

You could put a big old honking snorkel coming out the rear fender.
