    Based on Dinobob’s idea I’ve made what you can see here. I've used an old aluminium license plate.

    Measurements under request . I hope it helps to spread the dust all over the air filter, as everyone would like it :cheers:

    I used some rubber edge trim running the full length of the airbox lid on top of the little plastic fins. My theory being it makes the fins a little fatter and running full length the fins do not push into the foam. Seems to work really well. Cheap and easy.

    I took my filter out for inspection and found some of the fins had started cutting the foam, i wasnt impressed. I had some pipe thats used for the washer jets on cars and cut it down one side and glued it on the fins like you have with the trim. It was just to stop them cutting the foam, but i found it also let more air over the filter aswell, bonus.

    This is by far the best solution i have seen. I dont know your riding style, but do you ride it hard?
    What i wonder is sometimes you ride with legs loser and sometimes you squeeze the bike with your "knees" depending on situations... Do you feel it when holding your bike with knees? if you know what i mean :)

    Busted RS: you went all out- nice. I'm trying a simple thing, but should improve surface exposure a bit. Binder clips (with the fold back handles removed, of course.) Just dawned on me that it's a quick way to make a broader contact patch on the foam and air flows by/through them as they're triangular. I didn't use a bunch- ended up going with about 5 spread out. And I agree- the glove in the background looks weird. :) It's my filter oil glove on a bike seat.

    Thats sorta kinda what I did except I just used a length of light aluminium 90 degree angle stock that I had laying around in the shed and just cut to length drilled and cable tied it to the pedestal bits where you have the binder clips. If ya get what I mean. will put pics up next time I take the cover off.

    Pics as promised. I bent up a and cable tied a u piece by the intake to direct flow, then cable tied the 90degree aluminium on. I may drill some holes in both pieces for better flow and less weight one day.

    The pic of the dirty air filter is after 2 dusty rides. Prior to that the only dirty part was the part by the intake, and the rest was as clean as a clean thing, so this mod definitely spreads the air around a fair bit.

    Nice job. Looking forward to seeing how mine has affected flow.
