    There is a better fix which improves on the whole thing. I removed the air box snorkel, air box lid and air filter. I fitted a K&N air filter to the carb, which will increase the HP and makes the bike sound louder and throaty. You will need to re-jet the carb. Kits are available on ebay. Leave the air box bottom half in place and it gives you a nice compartment for the battery. Your could even replace the lid but will have to cut it about a bit to house all the wires. You can just see on the picture of my XLC 500 what it looks like from the rear.20150412_113144.jpg
