Cobra air intake

2009 xvs950A running cobra slashdowns, cobra air intake and cobra fi2000,
The noise on throttle from the air intake is wank in my opinion, a dull whistling everytime i open the throttle ( i expected more of a woosh lol). Everything is tight I think its the mesh and it being small and very close knit.
Any way can this be amended to sound better if not then can i go down the route of putting pod filters on this bike? will the fi2000 handle the tuning if i do, so i dont have any other alterations?

is there a how to on this mod?

if this is possible then i am possibly selling the intake

i don't see how a pod kit would work on this bike since there is no carburetor. but the fms will "handle" any air intake you put on. you just may need to adjust it accordingly if you go with an intake that sucks in more or less air than your current one.
