Will a 08 YZ250 2 stroke air filter cage fit a 08 YZ450F?
Their air filters are identical but the filter mounting etc Im not sure.

What 2 stroke cage will fit a 08 YZ450f if that one doesnt?

Thanks guys..

The YZ250 cage will fit, but it will NOT improve performance in any way.

Gray's right and it won't improve the performance because the foam element is more restrictive than the screen. You actually take a slight risk by riding without the screen, if for some very odd reason it decides to blow a flame out of the carb, the screen is suppose to keep the filter from catching on fire.
