Let me first start by saying working with Eric at EHS Racing has been nothing but topnotch. I received a Brute Force lid and deflector with Outerwears to try out on my 05 Brute Force 750i. The lid came already cut and drilled out. Assembly was quick and easy. As you can see from the pictures the finish looks awesome. I took my old lid off and installed my new one, then I hit the first problem. My new K&N filter was a tad too tall. I reinstalled my old TwinAir that I had before and it fit like a glove. This isn't the first time I had an issue with the K&N filter as I reviewed another product and it was a slight issue. For starters again this looks awesome on my quad. I blocked off the front of the air box so nothing would come in. The only air that is going in is through the top. A quick spin around the yard and she felt as strong as before I swapped the lids. No popping or backfires. I took it down the road, got it up to about 60 mph and she ran like a champ. I can still wheelie at anytime I want. I will be going to my local dealership, here in Vermont, and going to try it on a stock 650i, 750i. EHS Racing hopes are that on stock or modified Brutes that you can plug up the front of the air box and not have to re-jet your carbs or tune your EFI. Preliminary results are that you can. I will update after I try the other quads. Some notice the extra noise from the hole on top, but it really isn't that loud. I quickly got used to it. I also have a full Muzzys exhaust that may cover up some of it. What EHS Racing is trying to accomplish, is to design a lid to block off the front of the air box, that will take away the terrible design of the air box that most of us have experienced. This does not replace a snorkel, if you're doing deep mudding then stick to one of those. This product's purpose is to eliminate the "splash" that all Brute owners hate to have. I also believe your quad will breathe better and get less dust in the air filter. Eric at EHS Racing has hit a home run!!
