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.
