My race tomorrow is gonna rain. I just put on a mikuni 26mm carb. I can't run an airbox anymore. Any suggestions on how to keep my exposed air filter dry?

I've ridden in standing water before since it was raining so hard while I was riding, just try to keep it out of the puddles as much as possible. Mine ended up fine.

cut a soda plastic bottle (u need the ending part) and zip tie it to the air filter rubber mount.


I've heard of that I might try it. I was told to try covering it with panty hose haha. I'm gonna try that too

even with a U-flow you could have the same problem, water will get everywhere, so I'm sure no matter where your filter is it could get sucked in. A custom airbox is the way to go, I like the coke bottle idea!
