tossing the airbox for a direct K&N?

Anyone done this? What I'm really trying to get away with is putting a nice battery where the airbox used to be.

The intake is tuned to use the airbox and incorporates a velocity stack eliminating this will change the power band and jetting will be needed.
I have heard there are gains in hp when using the carbon fiber airbox and velocity stack together. I have one on mine, but i have not ridden it yet.

the biggest problem is K&N air filters have no place on a dirt bike. if it's dusty or you might come anywhere near a puddle, it won't be of any use. put one on your street bike or in your truck (they're in both of mine) but not your dirt bike.
Absolutely! Only Marcus can use a K&N filter on a dirt bike. The rest of us will have to stick to the old tried and true method of an air box and foam oiled filter.

K & N Filter are bad for dirt bikes. I replaced two pistons in one season on my quad before I figured what the problem was. K & N have good air flow and probably are fine for street use.
quads are bad, me no like quads.
secretly i have a brute force 650 that i tell no one about.

I ride 80% street, 20% dirt, its more for dicking about on really, not hacking about anywhere dusty in England!!
Was thinking of bolting on a K&N to the intake but I always find those damd filters DO let in small particles of dust......
If its gonna require jetting again then I might try it out with a pipercross foam one and get they boys down my local Dydo shop to set it up for me.
