97 xr400 air cleaner box

I am wondering if anyone here that has or had a 97 xr 400 ever had a problem with the air cleaner box. On my bike the damn strap that hold the filter in place keeps slipping off. Is there a quick fix for this? Thanks

Where you pull the clamp to the fully closed position the pressure [over time] makes the plastic tap weak and slightly bends. I drilled two tiny holes and put the small zip ties to have something help hold the filter clamp in the closed position. sorry, no images. I'll take some tonight or tomorrow when I pull the bike out to go ride.
