Your DR sounds amazing. :2_thumbsup: Before I wear mine out I'm hoping I can do a jet kit and slip on. So many DR mods on my list and so little money....

That all sounds good, however if you're doing a few water crossings, it's probably not a good idea to remove the side-cover from the airbox. The few extra inches are very handy to save you ingesting the water. I have opened up the top of my airbox quite a bit (but gradually) and have hit the happy medium. I have done the "BST mod", fitted the 40fox muffler & spent some time with jetting. The torque is now quite amazing to the original format. Fuel consumption is approx 50mpg.

Yeah opening the side is NOT a great idea on a bike that will spend a lot of time in the dirt or will be ridden extensively in rainy conditions. My bike is 85/15 street/dirt and I live in Southern California so deep water crossings are highly unlikely. Most of my off-road excursions will be dry and fire roads.

My plan is to open up the top in addition to keeping the side door removed. I also plan on putting a screen on the sides to keep larger debris from entering. I'm tuning it for the environment that it will spend the most time on and for my riding style.
