I'm new to DOOTalk. I have a 2005 Mach Z 1000. Bought it used with 3800 miles. I've read alot of info about the air box issues. My question is do I modify the stock air box or remove the air box and install pod filters? If the answer is to "modify" the existing air box, what does that require? Thanks in advance

Basically you don't need to modify much. Pull the air box from the outer side panel. There are holes in it where it "hooks" on. Plug those with a piece of quality rag. Where the air box conforms to the outer air inlet use self stick foam tape to seal around it.

Make sure the donut is in good shape and centered.

They are weep holes which I think all generation REVs have.
I see no issues with blocking them.
All generation REVs have this problem.
Some worse than others, especially the belt eaters.
Gen1 REV and RT were the worst with weep holes next to the belt.

RX7MachZ. Thanks for the input. I'd like to pull the box off and go through it, and make the mod you suggested. Are there any threads detailing how to get the box out with the belt drive being in the way?

2- How do we move information like this to the FAQs?

I removed the belt guard before making the video. Yes, I run with it in place.

Removing windage plates creates more venting. With full belt guard the output can be measured at the left footwell.

That is an aftermarket Team secondary. It doesn't have windage plates.
