So guys, the person that had this bike before me installed a jet kit and the open air box mod. It runs great, no worries there. What i was wondering about is should there be some sort of securing device for the filter / adapter plate to the air box or is it captured under the tank when its down. I'd hate for that filter to move around on top of the air box during operations and get contaminants in my carbs!

Yep, you need something there, there are pops back from the carbs on deceleration and the air stream from the front can lift the filter. If you still have the top, cut it like this leaving a couple of tabs to hold it plus the front or otherwise run a couple strands of safety wire across.

A lot of people leave the air box lid on, but do varying amounts of trimming and material reduction to achieve the desired outcome from just removing the intake trumpets; to extra holes in the lid; to having no nearly no lid at all - just using it as a retainer for the filter.

I am looking for an unmolested air box top---so if anyone has one that has not been modified in any way, I have exactly what the op needs, I'll trade anyone who is looking for the modified one for one that is not modified

Thanks Rock.....AGAIN....! Unfortunately I don't have the top but i can safety wire it down for sure. Yes, it did seem strange that the whole assembly was just sitting there...hmmmmm..

I got a set of clips for a chain saw air filter on Amazon for mine. Safety wire works too...though that aluminum keeper belongs above the filter, not below it.

Above you say? Thanks for the heads up! Since I bought this bike I've learned a lot from you guys. So would my whole assembly in the picture be inverted to be correct (metal on top and filter contacting the actual air box body)? Can you link the clips the you purchased? Any chance I could get of a pic of your setup?

It’s a BMC air filter.....at least, I thin it is. Been a while since I looked

At one point I just glued my filter into place with silicone sealer. It can be peeled off when necessary.
