Wouldn't be hard to make a box out of metal.  Or, you could get some sort of small organizer box.  You could cut a hole in the side of the box (the size of a radiator type hose) that feeds from the carburetor up to a spot under the seat.  Put your Pod Air Filter in the box, and connect it to the Radiator Type/Size hose. 

Then cut an intake hole in the box in the least likely spot it could suck in mud/water.

 

I haven't done this, just throwing out an idea for you.

Check out Outerwears Prefilter Covers. They are not water proof, but are water resistant and will help keep some of the mud off the pod filter. Otherwise you could go back to the stock air box, but a 140cc isn’t going to breath very well with the tiny OEM air box. I always pull them off my 50’s and 70’s.
