What do you think of your air pod filters?

Im really trying to figure out what mods I should invest in next. The pod filters look great and add a small performance boost.
For those of you that have a pair installed, do you think it is worth it? Do you like it?

Really happy with mine. I personally was not a fan of the side panels so removing them and having the pass through under the seat makes it look much better.

Calmer than you are...

No I did not. I wrapped some of the wires in tesa tape and tucked them nicely out of the way. The cover is a bit expensive for a piece of 3d printed plastic in my opinion. And if you take some time to clean up the wires it does not need a cover.

I love the way mine look, compared with airbox/ side panels. Not sure I notice any performance difference; if there is it must be relatively small.



But, I was surprised that the engine is a good bit louder with pods rather than airbox. Don't mind it being a bit louder, but it makes me rethink doing an x pipe, which I had intended, cause it's loud enough now I think. What I don't like is that not only is the exhaust sound louder, but I hear more of the Triumph high-whine engine sound -- I guess the crankshaft..? Not sure what that sound is, but others will I think. It's sometimes described as the "sewing machine" sound, or a "Jetsons" sound.


So, some unintended side effects, but overall I am still glad I did it, mostly for aesthetics.

A super inexpensive way to replicate those covers is with a piece of kydex. Just heat it up and place it over top of the wiring and itll mold right over everything. I think a few sheets are like $15 usd so you have some to practice with too!
