Hi KDXFreestyle. You can remove the lid all together. Or cut the snorkel opening out larger than it is.

The stock jetting is grossly rich and needs to be changed whether you modify the air box lid or leave the bike completely stock. Check out the JustKDX web page and click on Tech Tips. You'll see a carb tuning guide there.

Careful with the double posts! 8 minutes after your question on jetting changes here you post the "Airboxmod/jetting changes" thread, my patients are wearing thin! :|

Thanks for bumping a more'n year old thread.

At least you're reading!!

You can go buy a new airbox now, cuz you just ruined yours.

You WILL get water in those 'large holes' in both sides of the air box.

Obviously, it's your bike. You can do with it what you wish.

Still, imo you ruined your airbox...and if the problem isn't resolved you will end up ruining your bike.
