just saw a k&n airfilter kit on ebay and it was doing away with the air filter box. I thought
the air filter box was needed for the carbs to work properly. does anyone know about this.

I've heard about that...there is a kit to replace the box and let it breath. but you need to re-jet too... It replaces the box or puts the air filter in the open... I think I've seen a few pics on here somewhere... That sounds great if you want a screemer. and your replacing the pipes and maybe a cdi... Learned yesterday from a Kawi dealer locally doing a Teryx build themselves that you can get a "UNI" and replace the stock if you want a better filter that keeps the stock properties and is 2 stage and washable... Just depends on what reason you want to change the filter for.

I saw a pic of a deleted airbox @ http://www.sdrmotorsports.com/beddelete.html

Check out the bottom pic...Its on a Rhino

Yeah there are other threads about this. The CV carbs need some vacuum to operate the slides properly. Todd from Hunterworks can explain it better than I can. If you were using a standard non CV carb the open air box would be a viable mod.

The Kawi dealer told me that the Banshee guys with K&N's have trouble sucking in sand at glamis, so you see alot of them with uni type sock filters as pre filters over them...If not they get like 1/8 or more of sand in the bowls...NOT GOOD!!

I used to clean my K & N after every ride on my quads and was carefull how it was oiled and reinstalled. I noticed some dirt got past the filter once in a while. I'm looking at going a different way this time. Maybe Twin Air if they have something available. I think they would be good for drag racing.
