Cool!! Cold air intake for a quad!! I would think that would require alot more frequent cleaning In my opinion.

cleaning it wouldn't bother me, its the extra amount of air and the fact that it is now open to everything I ride over that does. I would imagine that you would have to rejet your carb and would want at least something like a splash guard between it and your tires. Just wondering if anyone here is running one.

combine this with a matched header and muffler exhaust system and it would scream. I have no idea what i have in the carb for jets right now with the 416 kit and muffler, but I'd be willing to upgrade to something like this.

Tim if you plan on putting any kind of defense up to protect that filter system keep in mind you may be defeating the sole purpose of the open design, it would be kind of like running without your air box lid. just stay out of the deep water and clean it often and put the filter sock on it, i'm sure they have been thouroughly tested under every condition and have manufactured it with these factors in mind. put it on and ride the piss out of it! LOL

I have never seen anybody run anything like this on a trail quad. On a yamaha Banshee for drag racing I have seen them. My buddys run the aluminum air boxes from omf and similar companies. They are nice and you can relocate your battery in them. And they have a mesh cover for them. Check one of them out Just look in Dennis Kirk or another mail order and they will show you what they Are.

"Replaces factory airbox with a mandrel bent and ultra-light aluminum intake tube, increases intake velocity for max power in dry conditions. K&N filter & Outerwears included!

Increases intake velocity for max power at high RPM's with a noticeable increase in bottom end torque. Why? The stock airbox can impair airflow at high RPM while at low RPM the stock intake snorkel can collapse when you jump on the throttle with. For that reason this intake really kicks up the throttle response and power at low-mid RPM.

And you will feel the mid-high RPM power increase when you completely un-restrict your 400 or 440 ex's carburetor, the open intake lets the motor rev freely to the rev limiter. Works best with full performance exhaust system!

Comes with K&N Performance Air Filter RU-0620, black water repellent Outerwears 20-1010-01

This intake is only for dry riding conditions, and is perfect for drag racing and absolute dune ripping. Shaves off 4.1 lbs. from stock aribox this intake with filter and hardware is only 1.1 lbs vs stock 5.2 lbs.

Intake tube starts with a 6061 T6 aluminum tubing and is mandrel bent ever so slightly, then has a bracket welded that bolts to the left heal-guard mounting pad.

Works with or without heal guards installed.

No additional fabrication necessary, this is a simple bolt on unit!!!

Velocity Intake Features
Aluminum Intake (4.1 lbs lighter than stock airbox)
K&N performance air filter
Black Outerwears Pre-Filter
Heavy rubber intake seal with all hardware
Polished Finish
Jetting Recommendations Included"

If I was to put up a shield, it would only be behind it (what is the top of the air filter). I'd leave the rest open. But even still, if you build a box and run it into that and it has no lid, your still getting the effects of the tube, just not the air flow like you would by having it open to the atmosphere.

I could always get this and build my own box to run it into. Plus it would allow me to relocate the battery and whatnot.
