So I have been getting lots of water into my airbox, and by the way the monkey is built I am getting plastered in mud and road salts daily here in Finland.

So I decided to move my airfilter to under the seat where the standard exhaust was.
I used the left side air box cover and flipped it upside down, then fitted the filter behind it.
I used a K&N style filter with a uni outer filter over the top, oiled.

The air intake, I used a flexible car induction tube at 40mm, then wrapped it twice with vulcanising rubber once I had gotten the shape I wanted.
All the front spray now doesn't get anywhere near it, and the rain is kept off by the box cover.
I am running a custom built exhaust and an Efie device at -0.200mv with this airfilter, and I am getting 115k/h on the clock.

The airbox looked stock except I hand removed the inlet snorkel and internal snorkel.

I think it was a deformation with the bottom of the airbox where the lid and box formed, as it never sealed closed no matter how tight the screw go in.

I had lots of water in the airbox on my first service too, and noticed the garage never emptied it when I got it back.
Noticed the clear plastic tube was white, pulled it off and lots of water poured out.

Tried sealing up the original airbox with silicone bit it don't stay for long.

So did this mod, works great and gives more power

Yeah I have been thinking of fitting a Grom front fender and removing the monkey one, and maybe an engine under cowl.
I've also been eyeing up that lower cowl. just wonder how close the paint will match.
I was thinking of getting a white one as the lower half of the tank is white, might match better than the red.
Or other option is to get a cheaper unpainted one, then order the official paint to match it.
