Personally I think having an air box on an off road bike is a very good idea. Its one more barrier for water to get through in stream crossings, and keeps the incoming air cooler than open elements.
An oiled foam filter should have been standard on these bikes. Even my Super Tenere had an oiled filter....
Thankfully the bike is such a riot to ride, I've never thought about the air filter while on a trip
