Fine dust inside carb to airbox intake?

By the way, sure seams hard to align the larger after market filters. Anyone know any tips on assuring a good filter seal along the back of the box?

Clean out the dust and run the same dusty conditions first with one. Then check for dust in the passage, clean out the passage the same way (even if you see no noticeable dust from the first filter) and then repeat with the other brand filter.
I did the test useing K&N filter oil on both filters. Mind you, this was an extremely dry and dusty condition. My results: The OEM allowed no dust and the Twin-Air did. Maybe if you do the same test, you'll get a different result. It would sure be good info to see your result for comparison so it can be confirmed or dis-qualified. Last thing I intend to do is trash a product if it is not really true.

By the way, the stock filter baskets are only $11 USD from Yamaha for those of you like me who like to have a few filters cleaned, oiled, and ready to go.
