Hey all- I'm still in the process of getting my 2009 TE-610 all setup. I've installed a Leo Vince muffler, and powerup kit and LOVE how this bike runs now. I also have Kenda K270s, a Hyde racing skid plate, grip heaters, and the flat top Ranger Dirt-Bagz on order. Things are shaping up!
One of the things I keep reading about is the low air intake ports on the side of the airbox. I know at least one guy has sucked in water and bent a rod because of this
I'm thinking of minimally invasive mods to prevent this kind of issue during a water crossing. My idea is to make a kydex panel that would mount over the side panel (with generous vent) forming a raised intake. Air would go straight down the duct, and right into the existing "too low to be safe" ports.
Anyone else done a mod to prevent water injestion? Please share!
