I am in the process of installing the woods intake that uses the air box and ran into an issue. This kit did not come with any instructions. My problem is, when I mount the new intake to the stock box I can still see day light, it dosent seal flush aginst the intake and the plastic box. I was just wondering if any of you have had this same problem and what the fix is or if I am doing somthing wrong. I was thinking about just using some silicone to seal it up but that doesnt seem right. :wtf

I had the same thing. I just left it. The daylight is very small on mine. I run with the (EHS) lid anyway. Did you get it to not touch the frame bolt? I did, but not by much. Also, did you notch out the upper right hand side(just a little) of the box?

Thanks for the help. I guess you are right it reall doesnt matter to much. I will probably just leave mine as well. I am not sure about the notching or the bolt yet because I havent bolted everthing completly tight yet. So tomarrow I should be able to give a better ans.

Hey...

I just put a bead of clear silicone (GE, DAp, Etc) around it and cleared that problem up. There won't be much light after you tighten it, but I ride a lot of trails crossing creeks and such, and like to have a good seal.

Alot of people are just sealing it up with silicone like mentioned above.


I have the ESR kit that does not even have an airbox and love it.
