Airbox on an 02

Recommended Posts

I bought a 450 02 off a mate a while back and haven't had any issues with the airbox. (that i am aware of) I am relativley new to bikes and am hearing alot about faulty airboxes on the 2002's. What should i look for??

The seal between the air boot and air box is prone to leaking.

Take the air filter out and see if you've got any dust in the air boot.

On my '02 I tried the PC Racing Pro Seal, others tried the MX Bonz seal kit, but in the end I bought an '03 air box from a TT member.

The '03 air box is a better design anyways, plus the '03 filter is much better than the '02 filter.

I know this sounds dumb, but just to double check. Which bits the air boot?

Is it the bit when i remover the filter that goes towards the carb?

Even if it appears not to be leaking, I would still do something about it.

Either a seal kit or a '03 air box.
