Air filter fix

Just joined to let you all know that there is a really easy fix for stupid foam filter dusting your engine. Napa gold 6449 air filter and a 1 1/2 pvc coupler. Put the coupler inside filter and slips inside breather tube in factory air box. 2016 Kodiak 700. Put air box lid on your done. 70 cfm filter. Performance seems fine. I have dusted to many engine with foam. Just thought I would let you all know this simple fix.

Good for chasing cows I don't know about racing. I have pictures I'll see if I can post them. If not pretty straight forward.

Magard,

Thanks for the pictures! How did you get the 1-1/2" coupler down in to the filter? Were you able to force it in, or did you cut some of the rubber in the filter?

Thanks,
Pikester

Just force it in. Maybe alittle lube would help. Definitely not going to let dirt by.

Miss information on coupler size it should be a
1 1/4 pvc coupler. Sorry for that. 1 1/2 pvc pipe should work. Thought I had a different coupler. Any how hope that clears things up.

Are you putting a foam or prefilter over this or better not to ?

It looks like you could put your factory foam filter over the paper filter but 70 cfm paper filter is border line for air flow. I don't think it's necessary. Just run paper alone. Paper will plug
quickly in extreme environments. Might change paper filter every oil change if needed.

I only have a hundred miles with this set up. So I'm experimenting, others may have more input. I just don't want to dust another engine.
