Hey guys, I'm looking for some advice on vent kits for 03-07 revs. I've had no luck looking on the performance & trail forum and though I would try the mountain forum. I consider myself a flatlander boondocker and would like to get rid of some under hood heat to help the clutches keep cooler.

 

A couple of questions that I have are:

Which kits can handle a beating?

Which kits flow the best?

Anyone recommend Mo-flow vent kits?(I been looking at them for some time and think yellow vents would look sweet on black panels.) 

 

Any info would be a big help!

 

Thanks to all who reply in advance

I'm partial to 2 Cool vents myself. Ridden hard and not even a tear or fray. I bought some lexan panels a few months ago and they are getting the same vents as my stock panels have.

You don't have to spend a bunch of $$$$ on vents..... Lots of guys make custom ones, or just drill smaller holes in a pattern

Trippy you have a good point, I guess I could drill some holes and cover them universal frogskinz screens. Has anybody done this? Any pics?

Or, just go but some pet screen and hot glue it to the back side ( inside the pannel) That's what I do now, and many have done for years. It is simple and works great.....

Xtreme Air, there backed with aluminum so tree branches can't rip em, and they actually make your body panels stronger.

Don't bother with those...they tend to just retain heat.  

 

Pet screen is a cheap way of doing it yourself and it doesn't really look any different than if you bought a kit.

I think people like the thought of FrogSkinz because of it's ability to repel water. Problem with that is the holes in the screen is so small that air doesn't really go through it unless it is sucked through like on the SLP intake.

The pet screen is great for the sides of the sled because snow isn't getting a straight shot at anything inside the sled.

If you are going to put a vent directly in front of the clutch, I would say is FrogSkinz. Everywhere else, use screen if you decide to do it yourself.

Many people use regular vents around their clutches with no issues.  Myself included   

 

 

Many people don't have good things to say about Frogskinz.  Once again myself included.

I'm glad you confirmed that we both agree with each other.

mo-flow has hydrophobic mesh that lets a bit more air through, you can feel a difference from frog skinz, i use gorilla tape on inside works fine, if you need to replace it's easy
