Im reading a lot of people taking off the air intake lid on their Hondas. I get the benefits, but what are the drawbacks to this? Does this increase the likelihood of dirt in the engine? etc.
If you run with no lid at all, you will be changing or cleaning your filter before a whole day of riding. Especially in dusty areas. No lid does flow more air, but you need to increase fuel to get the full benefit from it, like with a Power Commander. I went with these guys. They modify a lid, complete with filter material, ready to bolt on. This cover is almost waterproof and keeps the inside of the airbox much cleaner. WWW.EHSracing.com
