Does anyone know how to modify the airbox, 2002 M900, that will allow more air flow yet remain reasonably water tight? ::)
You can't have both.

I cut mine open with a dremel cutting wheel, then filed the edges to smooth them. I left enough edges around the box to keep most of the flying dirt, bugs, and so on out, but there's no way it will work as well as the original closed airbox with rear facing snorkels.

i've ridden with mine opened in some hard rain for at least half hour at a time, and no ill effects.

I cut mine just like Scott's picture.....I was really worried about it in the rain and looked several times after wet rides but, the water that does splashes up there is very minimal. It sure does sound better without the top ;D

I do cover it with plastic while washing it. Cut the top you will not be disappointed....But you must adjust the mixture or you will be running lean.
