I'm still using the stock airbox, how the heck do you get the stock airbox cage out/off, does it have to be cut out?

it's hard to explain but i was able to seperate the inside cone and the outside flange. They are two pieces and do come apart. It was a PIA to do. I dont have any pics to show, sorry.

Got it done last night, took a dremel tool and cut the cage off flush with the inside airbox wall. Used about 5 discs getting the job done, but its done.

I finally got around to cutting that little cage out last night and now i'm getting a mad bog, and it won't idle to well. So, did you guys get this kind of reaction from your quads?

They're damn near IMPOSSIBBLE to fully remove. Before you butcher it up too bad, I'd recommend getting a die grinder (90 degree ones work great) or a dremel tool and just cutting the cage off flush with the box; It's not worth trying to muscle the damn thing out. (I broke the little pin off of my inlet air temp sensor when I tried)

After that, the gasket goo they give you will fill up any irregularities you've created. (I just made a gasket out of some sheet rubber we use around the shop for making gaskets)
