I run that fender on my XR. Just take off the OEM fender and flip it over onto the included template (so that you're looking at it from where the tire would be).

Anyone had any experience removing the air box and using a cone style air filter that attaches directly to the carb?

My owner's manual specifies 10-15 mm of play measured from the front of the lever ball-end. Mine is spot on.

Any other ideas about why it is hard to downshift and find neutral until the engine has warmed up?

I suspect that the clutch is not disengaging fully. This is how the bike behaves when there's too much slack in the clutch cable. I adjust it so there is about 2-3 mm play measured at the gap in front of the pivot point for the lever.

Measuring where you suggested I found about 4 mm of play. I've reduced that to about 3 mm, and will see if that improves things.

New Fender

I put the new fender on tonight. The color match is good and installation was a breeze! Here are a few pics:

There was someone posting here a while back that had acquired a 200 already butchered that way. IIRC, it did not run too well. Generally, if you make that radical a change in the breathing, you are in for a good time jetting it to work. Unless you have some sort of uncorked exhaust, you won't gain much power, but you will gain a bunch of extra intake noise.

All told we did:
- Shafer switchbacks
- White Rim Trail (one day)
- Gemini Bridges
- Long Canyon
- Slickrock Bike Trail
- A run on HWY 279
- A jaunt out Kane Creek Road

These are very competent motorcycles!!!

And if you have absolutely nothing better to do:

Not just increased noise but that's going to be a nightmare in rain or water crossings, plus the filters get dirty incredibly fast. I run filters right off the carbs on my quad and have to run 3 layers of protection just to make it through a weekend. Outerwear on the outside keeps the big chunks off and helps a tiny bit with water (still have to putt through creeks). Under that I have a woman's leg nylon wrapped around the K&N filter. I swap the nylons out usually at the end of every day and they're pretty nasty looking at that point even. IMO an airbox is required on any bike that sees normal daily use including occassional flooded gutters, creeks, or even rain. People on this thread have even had problems with rain on DR's with the airbox lid removed.

Oh and looks good PSU!
