You're air filter is not designed to block a tidal wave of fine sand. You'll need to add some extra protection to keep your engine free from all the grit. I suggest using a K&N pre-filter if you're using a K&N air filter or an airbox cover.
The pre-filter prolongs the life of your air filter and makes it easier to maintain.
The airbox cover is exactly what it says - a cover that covers your airbox providing additional protection from the sand while maintaining optimal airflow.
I ran a K&N and found deposits in my boot. . . So I bought a UNI filter and put a nylon over it and haven't found any sand in there yet and it didn't Take any power.
