Newbie Question

I recently purchase a 06 LTR 450 and the previous owner did a swirl filter delete, and ran without the airbox lid and also the spark arrester removed. The previous owner also said that it seemed to get vapor locked after riding hard for 20 minutes or so. My question is Do I need to reinstall the filter because I need to run with lid on because of the water and mud that we ride in here in WV. Will this affect the performance of the bike
also any suggestion on wear to purchase a good set of rims and tires.
thanks in advance

A lot of guys do the filter delete and it’s completely fine as long as you have an inline fuel filter, in my experience it has to be a good quality paper filter not a visu filter they seem to let very small particles through that will plug up the screen on the ltr’s fuel filter. As to the vapor lock Have you experienced this? If so what are the symptoms?
