Nice filter setup..
The stock splash guards are removed and all wiring tied up out of the way. I recommend that on any Adventure.
I was going to ask about that, so thanks. Got mine apart now picking the rocks out of the radiator and was looking at those thinking more cooler air...hmm, so i am going to ditch the guards also.
I also tried a after market serviceable air filter and noticed dust on the insides of my TBs and around the perimeter of the filter on the hard gasket that is supposed to seal. Called for a refund after only a few rides, not what i want for a bike that is in the dirt.
