Hey all, I've been reading this great forum for some time and now I need a kind of "situation specific" question answered. I have a 2000 650R and I just purchased a UNI air filter with the metal form support to it. My question is do I need to retain the stock backfire screen when I install this filter? It doesn't seem like it wants to fit properly, and for that matter question 2: How does this filter fit? It doesn't seem like it seats properly any which way I place/force it. does it just need to fit over the black airbox, or does it have to seat INTO the black air box. I've always used the stock "sponge" type filters and I've never had a problem retaining the backfire screen or being able to fit the filter (it is quite a bit thinner than the UNI also) into the airbox. Any and all help would be much appreciated and also facilitate me riding my BRP as soon as I can. Happy Holidays all, and safe/fun riding to everyone!
