Newer YZ450F in Wet Conditions – Worries

I have a 2014 YZ450F and I haven’t yet had to ride/race in wet conditions. I do worry about getting dirty water sucked in through the air box because of the front design.


Have you rode in the wet/rainy conditions with a newer YZ450F and have you had any issues?


Maybe and I hope I am just being paranoid!



Don't ride through puddles

No issues...


After the race...


Thanks for the feedback. It’s bound to rain here in California one day and it will be a race day when it does.

It only rains on weekends or when you have to work outside.

The up top airbox on the yamahas stay much much cleaner and dryer then any other bike I have owned.
