Trapper, I love the color - but then I'm somewhat biased. Lookin' good!

In reference to what DSPTurtle was describing re: the WUR venting to the air box. In a stock configuration with stock airbox, there is a small rubber hose vent line that goes from the WUR to the airbox. In the event that your WUR craps out (more accurately, the diaphram inside the WUR ruptures), that will cause gas under pressure to shoot through the vent line and end up in the airbox....vs. squirting all over your hot engine should that vent line be missing or directed elsewhere.

Look at the mounting base of your current air filter, to see if it has the fitting in place for the vent hose to attach to. And/or, trace the vent line from your WUR to see where it goes to.
