Looking for some ideas on what airbox mods I should add my YZ450 2006, or if I should even bother? :cry:

I have re-jetted the bike after installing a FMF pipe. :ride:

The bike is super fast now and contains the factory air filter that gets cleaned after every ride. I was looking to spend maybe $75.00. Was also looking at the K&N filters, are these hard to maintain?

I have one on my 250F an like it cause you never have to replace it. But it is a pain in the ass to install and re install after cleaning. But in the long run it is worth it.

If you really want to, the Twin Air Powerflow Kit is good.

IMO, there seems to be plenty of air flow through this bike.
