I was using a uni filter (foam) ! The problem with those is that they don't seal very well. Dirt is being sucked through between the airbox and the filter. To solve this I used a original filter, took out the paper and mounted the uni on top of the original filter. Made some longer clips to lock them together.

Now my air intake was against the bottom of my fuel tank.

A big problem that I would like to take care of is the water getting in when you make a big bow wave.
That was washing the dirt through the filter.

I've got the same problem with the UNI. Always wondered if there was a way to turn the horns, maybe with some vinyl hose and some how make it bend 90 degrees out to the sides, maybe put a bologna slice on the end so it will keep the water out. Rooney made it look very complicated....
