Hey all, I'm about to do the side panel mod for my 650R and before I started I was wondering about a few points. Has anyone who has done this mod ride in wet weather and experienced water on the air filter? Therefore is it recomended to do this mod if one rides predominantly in wet weather or on wet terrain? I understand the R was made for Baja and dessert racing and this mod may be beneficial in those conditions, but I can just imagine a splash on the side cover wetting the air filter. And Is it really noticible? I've read some guys really rave on about it but I just don't know if it would make that much difference. I've got the bits from XR's only coming and didn't want to find out the hard way it's no good for me and where I ride, that is single track, rocky rutted out hills and lots of puddles when it rains.
