Yep, you need to use the round plate, use a little grease to stick it in place in the filter, have fun,
Yeah, I didn't like the plastic cover so I did this, it cures all the problems.
Looks very promising. How about some details (or a link to a thread about it)? Thanks!
Bradey, I used K&N filter #RU-2580, and you are right, the metal plate has to be used with the plastic cover or it won't seal. It's a pain in the neck to get it together and that's why I decided to follow Shappers lead and make an adapter to use the K&N in the air box.

Thank ya sir, but I can't take credit for it, Shappers did it first and paved the way for us to follow. It didn't take long to make, couple of hours and now everything is sealed, I have a washable K&N filter that draws air from a big air box with a long tract to the injector. If there is a downside I can't find it.
I was really wondering what your thoughts on that little mod would be, I'm glad we agree that I stole a great idea from Shappers
hi r80rt can you let me know whether you were able fit the round metal plate under the new plastic cover. because I am completely flummoxe and not able to fit the two.I am certainly not happy using only the plastic cover as I feel it does not seal the filter from the other end.............any tricks, suggestion would be much appreciated.
Bradey, exactly! Unless the filter and cover are both just right one of them won't seal. I'm planning to cut out the dimple from the new cover, cover the hole with a plate, mount the fliter as usual, and then just use some foam to hold the new cover snugly in place by pressing against the outer triangle box cover.
