    Nah, tap the dirt off and keep going. :lol3 It looks like a K&N filter. At worst, clean it and re-oil it.

    I just installed a 5-Stars brand rear rack on my RD03 (yes, it looks just like the stocker and that's why I like it). It came without the GIVI tabs, but I had a set laying about to install on it. I can now swap my Kappa box from bike to bike. :1drink
