2005 WR450 Airbox Noise

The power difference is incredible, I'm surprised they actually sell the bike this crippled when all that engineering is going to waste with the stock setup.

Do you think the stock gearing is set up to only get into 5th gear above 40mph? Seems like that would be pretty long legs. I did notice that in the soft sand, I seldom got above 3rd gear to keep pulling.

Anyway, this thing pulls like a late freight from just off of idle since I made the mods, I was just wondering if anyone else had heard the same intake noise. Kinda reminds me of my old '65 GTO without the air cleaner !
I guess I need to do some more testing. I wonder if it could be a crosswind. I only noticed the "Honk" while going one direction, and I know some bikes are intake sensitive to very specific crosswind conditions.
Thanks for your comments.
