I just purchased a pro tec mo flow lid and i noticed that when u put it on it seems that it doesnt fit tight. Has anyone else had this issue with theirs. If so give a fellow raptor lover a good idea to make sure its completely sealed, dont want to get any water in that air box! :thumbsup:

I put mine on...it does seem a bit on the loose side, but I have washed the rappy a couple of times and havn't seen water in near the intake. I do know though, some people went ahead and put very thing weather stripping on, just to "make sure" water won't penetrate...Im thinking about doing it, since the rainy season is coming :thumbsup:

I also heard of the weather stripping to seal the border. I had planned on buying the pro flow but decided against it because of the fit. I ended up buying the EHS Racing lid. I never heard of any other way to keep it sealed other than the stripping because most other ways would prevent you from taking the lid on and off and maintaining the seal. I would just use the weather stripping IMO, but there are prob some other great ways of doing it. I wouldnt mind hearing some myself.

Don't know, this might sound dumb, but when I wrecked my first like, 3 times..both my headlights broke off. I used some rubber silicon to fasten 'em back on. Maybe if you used that on the inside of the lid just around the borders, im pretty sure it'd keep all water out....just not sure how durable it would be (but hey, my headlights are still on...)

The silicon would be pretty durable. I think the hard part would be getting a nice even, thin layer. Too lumpy and you'll have areas not sealing.
My Mo-Flow lid fits pretty well. If I put anything on it it would have to be very thin and compress near flat. I can hardly work the snaps on my airbox as it is. Certainly not as easily as with the stock lid.

I too have decided against this lid because ive heard alot of stories about the ill fit. You would think for that money it would fit near perfect.
