I am thinking about getting an Air filter for my 99 MXZ500 but have a few questions about them.
Do they mount right off the carbs eliminating the airbox?
Do they clog or not perform good while in deep snow b/c of no airbox?
Are they worth getting

thanks

A lot of aftermarkets, like K&N's mount right to the carbs, eliminating the airbox. You will probably have to rejet the carbs after, because the increased airflow will lean out the mixture, and you can seize the engine at high speeds.

They will never clog up, there is nothing to dirty up the filter in the snow. Once a year would be fine as far as cleaning goes.
