I just installed a K&N air filter on my WR 400! :cry: Are you supposed to put the stock air filter lid back on? Because the K&N air filter comes with a lid that goes on the air filter. It seems that it wouldn't get enough air! What should I do? Should I take the stock air lid off or leave it on? :cry:

I took my stock air filter out completely and shoved an old sock in the air box. It runs great! Way more horsepower. :cry:

How can you be a judge of the air filtering qualities of an old sock if you've never tried it? Fool.

Remove the entire air box ass'y., toss the entire filter ass'y away. Now get the hose off of your moms vacuum cleaner. Hook it snugly to the inlet of the Keihin, then duct tape it up high on the bike, then up your back. Snorkel should suck air about 1 foot above you head. This will prevent too much hot ait in there which can rob power. Now you can ford deep streams and when you all done, you can vacuum out the inside of the truck of all the dirt from a hard days ride. I recommend about 3500 rpms for best result on vacuuming.

I believe that that lid is to cover it for when you wash the bike.


What you really need is the carbon fiber velocity stack and airbox. There is a definite increase with both installed.

Toyota, I use the "Heater grips" to keep the airbox warm, I use 3 pairs to line the inside of the airbox so HOT air goes into the carb.... :cry:

I actually tow a generator around with me to run my engine block heater so my engine stays warm when i am not riding it.

I think marcusmoberg should use fishnet stocking for a filter. :cry: They seem to match his brains that are also full of holes. :cry:
