So, Utah had an unusually dry April which is normally a wet month. My last ride was out to the west desert area down by Eureka. Some good trails, but that top layer of our grey clay soil has turned into a talcum powder like dust. Sections of the trail were a lot of fun to drive at 20-30 mph, but the dust billowing up and through those generous gaps between the doors and body made for some really unpleasant driving conditions. Has anybody tried to seal those door and body gaps? If so, what suggestions do you have? What did you use? I thought about trying some of the adhesive foam rubber weather stripping, but it would probably only last a short while. All suggestions appreciated.

BTW, I checked the air filter after the ride And it was easy to access the canister. I was a bit concerned with the amount of dust in the canister, however. The filter seems to secure quite firmly, however.

Kawi makes a cabin seal kit. I don’t have it but I did watch the install video and it seems nice. I may purchase the kit in near future

Put the cab seal kit in mine, did not prevent the dust but sure made a big difference ! Would highly recommend it

I think this is one of the issues that is on Kawasaki's Ignor list... IMO the seal kit appears to be a complete afterthought and didn't consider this problem when they designed the car.. The seal kit comes with of a set of rubber flaps the lay on the floor under the seats that do the job and keep item from falling Side of the battery and fuel tank but also retains water in spots.. I was only able to use a couple of the door seals along the bottom rear and was not about to use the seal they sent that lays on the outside of the car that rubbed the finish raw and binds the door operation. I have tried a few different things on the door seals that have worked better than what comes in the kit with some home center weather strip but have yet to figure out a real good solution for the crack at the front of the door. Because where they mounted the hinges it pinches any seal that is tried near the outside of the door skin. So far a thick foam rubber seal mounted on the inside door sill instead of on the door seems to working along with duck tape the holes in the hinges.. cars in the shop but try to get a couple of pictures.. maybe some one will come up with a better front of the door solution..
