Power gains, yes definately as the stock setup is very restrictive.

Increased chance of dirt in the airbox, yes. Increased chance of dirt getting past the filter, yes but the filters do very well and the vast majority of people don't have any issues with this setup, especially with outerwears. The only time I wouldn't suggest removing the lid is if you routinely ride in deep water or in extremely fine dusty conditions and don't mind the lack of power. Worst I've come acrossed is filters getting dirtier faster but only when in very fine dusty conditions.
