    Wow that looks great! So has it improved the air filter life, or to early to tell?

    Amazing where they design intake air to be drawn in! S/S is a class act!

    I did the relocate kit bringing my engine and cvt air intakes inside the cab. Hopefully future Polaris designs will correct the problem of the air intakes on the roll bar sides posts. I can't imagine what those engineer-designers were thinking when they released this set up for production.

    I did the same thing as Ken and relocated both to the inside the cab. One behind each seat. It doesn't matter where you put the intake in Arizona as there is so much dust you have to clean them frequently, but at least they are off the roll bars and have an extra in line filter .

    its to early to tell but it has got to be better as there is very little dust in the cab when we ride gravel roads . and thanks to the rest of you , i just didn't want PVC its so big and bulky looking

    With a snorkel kit do you see that benefiting more then a particle separator?
