Cool Modifying airbox

2016 1290R; has anyone modded top lid on this airbox,by fabricating & installing an aftermarket air filter panel,either on top of, or within the lid of airbox??...instead of paying $$$$$ for a complete aftermarket assembly?

First,I have to see if there a separate pt# for
Top lid,if so,and its not $$$,I'll have to price out
And measure all available filters,my idea is quite
Simple but will have to be done neatly and professionally,if I have to mod a brand new lid
It's gonna be done right!

I've done research on the DNA filter,it flows better because it has more surface area then either the stock filter or K&N,don't know who sells them in the states though🤔

Yup. eBay. New in the box for 58 bucks. It's a beauty. I have used k&n in many bikes. Currently have an afe in my ram 1500. K&n, afe, bmc, DNA there all the same. I prefer oiled cotton over paper and would have bought which ever was cheaper. Got lucky and found a deal on the DNA.
