The clamp for the boot connecting the air box to the throttle body? That should not be sliding off. After a week of desert riding my uni filter was caked with dust on the outside but inside was totally dust free, so sounds like there is a problem somewhere. Just to ask the obvious, the filter has been oil treated right? They come already oiled so I am guessing yes. And those two tabs in the front of the airbox cover are sliding properly into the slots at the front of the air box. Hope you figure it out!
