Maybe get this and somehow build a cover for it to help keep water out but allow air in easily still?
I think you should be fine. And it would allow you to remove the ugly stock air box. I know others will disagree and not want to touch anything and change it from stock. But the more fun little mods I put on, the more I learn about bikes in general and how they work. I would hope the point of a mod would be to make the bike perform better and look cooler as well. Just gotta be ready to do a little more work if something isn't calibrated right. But isn't that what guys do, we wrench, take things apart, put back together, and learn how it works! Good luck. Will keep you updated.

Something like that would give me a lot more reassurance. Just trying to figure out if theres 70mm of clearance for it sticking out. I still want to have the cover on it. Keep it stock looking on the outside with lots of fun bits behind the panels.
