It doesn’t solve a problem or deficiency with the 16-18 Kawasaki 450 or 17-19 KX250F. Nothing wrong with stock. What it does is replace the OEM plastic filter cage that houses a backfire/flame resistant mesh screen with a billet aluminum filter cage that does NOT have a mesh screen. In theory, removing the mesh screen increases airflow into the intake. Whether the engine needs more air or is improved with a more open intake is debatable. You may see some gains on a dyno, but even the most sensitive of test riders will say it’s negligable. You can cut the screen out of the OEM plastic unit if that’s what you desire and have the same effect. I prefer to keep mine installed to act as another line of defense from contaminants. You also risk having a backfire ignite the airfilter without the screen. Twin air makes a specific fire retardant filter for those that don’t run the screen.

Other models may suffer from a poorly designed filter cage and the Twin Air set up may be an improvement. Not the case with the 16-18 Kawi 450/17-19 KX250F, IMO.
