The only small issue I have with the plastic conversion kit is that it leaves the airbox a little more open than I would like.  It may not ever be a problem, but I just don't want to take chances with as much mud and sand as we ride in.  I fabricated some plates from aluminum to fill the sides of the box so that it is better covered.  I did notch it for the openings in the side plates, so the airflow should be good.  I used a rivnut to hold them in place, and painted them in semi gloss black.  They are removable if I ever want to remove the plastic conversion.  Overall I am pleased with the results, but I ordered some ABS plastic from the devil (Amazon) so I may redo them in plastic down the road.

Here it is after I painted it.  The scratch is covered by the side panels, so I'm not going to worry about it.  That's what I keep telling myself.   grin
