KFX450R Airbox Cover
EHS Racing Airbox Lid
Stock airbox lids aren't made with performance in mind. They just don't
allow enough air into the intake to take advantage of aftermarket pipes. You
can take the lid off, but in the sand, your filter will get dirty very
This is what the stock lid looks like on a Kawasaki KFX450R. The snorkel air
intake is pretty restrictive.
This is the stock air filter and box with the lid removed. Great for air flow,

The pre-filter material is specifically designed by Outerwears for EHS;
all edges are tapped to prevent fraying or tearing.
All aluminum plates are CNC milled for exact precision with EHS RACING
engraved in every one.
The filter is made from a water resistant material, so it will keep
almost all water out of your air box.

hold the plate in place. Drill out remaining holes one at a time and install
bolts to insure alignment between each drill.
Then mark the area to be cut away. Drill out the corners to make sawing
Once the holes have been drilled and the area has be cut away, the lid
will look like this.
Install the plate, cover and rubber grommet.
EHS Racing airbox lid greatly improved how clean the air filter stayed
compared to when I ran with no lid at all. It is the best of both worlds -
lid off performance with a cleaner air filter.
