I went out to just remove and cleanmy air filter. For
some reason I started looking at the air box. Thinking
more air flow the better. I removed the sub frame and
then the air box. I ended up with 3 peices, the back
part that bolts on the bottom of the fender to
protect the shock, and the frame of the box with the
side pannles(now laying on the floor), and the boot
between the carb andthe filter. I used some plummers
strap on the sides for support. Bolted the straps on
to the back side of the filter basket then
used the bolt for the subframe. Is this a good thing or not?

not. Not sure what your saying exactly but the airbox should not come apart unless you take it apart.

Sorry I didn't make my self clear. Yes I took
my air box apart. I put the one peice back on
the rear fender, then the boot for the filter
with the filter on.

I would have to believe more important to not let the filter get clogged. One thing I love about this airbox is that it doesn't get dirty. To me that means better airflow through out the day. I guess you can do that for a 5 lap race but you'll have to clean it again afterwords because it'll be chocked with dirt.
