    I just noticed this when I was checking my air filter. This is the bottom corner of my air box below the filter.

    You can CLEARLY see the dirty water stains. Are these holes normal?!

    So, does anyone else have three little holes in the bottom of their air box?

    They let any water that gets to the filter drain out the bottom instead of going into your engine.

    Looks like you've been hitting mud puddles at about 40mph and the water is going through the holes the wrong way now.
