Lightbulb 07 H1 Prowler sucking to much dust.

Does anyone know if I will run into problems if I disconnect the airfilter inlet from the Air-In/Out Plenum, then turn the airduct boot facing up, adding a small snorkle with a filter? Would this mess up the airflow for the airflow in and airflow out ducts on the Plenum?
The dust is killing me. I need to clean my filter after every ride. Our trails and fire roads contain real fine dust that gets into everything.
The location of the air inlet Plenum is beyond me.
I ride mountains and deserts, not many deep water crossings here.

You can do that, put a 1.5 inchpvc reducer and you won't have to rejet. You shouldnt need the extra filter then.

I removed the complete air box intake Plenum assembly. Installeda uni filter to the inlet of the air box which is 2.25" OD. It acts like a prefilter and works great. A snorkle may be the ticket but this works for me.

Thumbs up

I turned the boot up on my machine and added 1 1/2" pipe which slid right into the boot and made a small snorkel with a 45 at the top, no prefilter. Workes awesome, Arctic cats engineers should get a kick in the a$$ for dreaming up that faoctory setup!

Sure is a lot easier if you have a extra filter or two that is cleaned and oiled just waiting to be installed. So instead of having to clean it when you really don't want to you just pop the clean one in and then do the dirty work at your leisure.
