My airbox/pod filter solution

I couldn't justify spending $350 for TPO's "kit"......especially when I could never get anyone to answer the phone or call me back, and the pic of the bracket on their website didn't look like anything that would work on a 796, so I just cut the top of the airbox off. Actually more than the top.....all that's left are the base, velocity stacks, and the back part where the ECU & battery box attach. K&N makes a perfect 4x4 filter (RB-0800) that slips right over the stock velocity stacks (only needed a slight trim). All the ancillary parts that attached to the airbox still have their mount points. I have no idea why I never saw where anyone had already done this, and I looked all over the internet for an idea of what other ppl were doing. So now I have unimpeded airflow at the intake, and a very long exhaust. I'll be surprised if this thing doesn't dyno at well over 90hp with a proper tune.

I've been digging myself down an internet rabbit hole trying to figure out a pod filter setup for my 2012. I would love to use TPO's setup but like OP said the bracket situation needs to be addressed. I found a thread on where some guys did a group order for some brackets that seemed like they allowed people to use the Beast pods.

I just emailed WASP/Intake express to see if their PUK works on a 796. They have the 696 and 1100 listed on their website, but I also found a thread where Greg (one of the owners I guess) quoted a guy asking about a 796 saying it would fit. Sucks these kits are a grand but if they fit and I can't make do on my own I may spring for it.

Does anyone know for sure whether the Beast/Beast R pods will fit a 796 if I can fab a bracket? or if the WASP kit will definitely fit a 796?

Seems like Tim came up with an alternative solution and did everything but install it for you. 😁

Right on Tim! I would love to see some dyno numbers. I've been looking at my options for my 1100 and wondered the same thing. There doesn't seem to be any "affordable" option available. Looks like I'll have to get creative.

Looking into the past shows progression forwards.
