when you install the BMC, make sure to put blue loc-tite on the screws that hold the air filter to the airbox. If not, the screws can come loose, and there is a chance that they could end up holding one of your intake valves open.

most all factory air filters have screw retainers, so even if they aren't tightened, they are not able to come loose and travel throughout the airbox. Don't know why they opted to only do that on the lower screws on this filter.

Thats what I was thinking. Why is there a screw in the box?

YEah!! cuz that would be WAAAYY worse than having something holding open your intake valve, allowing the piston to contact the valve, and possibly breaking the head of the valve off and dropping it into the combustion chamber! Good call!!

Thanks I didn't know that was an issue. I remember Patrick saying something about plastic vs rubber frames around aftermarket air filters

yeah... I didn't know they were the old pics until I uploaded them. The front tire was a pic of when 1st got the bike the rear shots were taking before the forest ride I went on with MH and before the Parade Lap in July. I thought I took new pics of the old tire.

I'm anxious to get rid of the chicken strips on these tires but I don't know how long your suppose to "scrub". I think I should be good now I think I have 50miles on them. Know any good corners on the NW side?

For some reason I thought you were talking about the butterflies on the throttle bodies. Like a stuck open throttle. sry ima schmuck.
