is the frame rail sealed off off between the intake and cvt intake. does it matter where you drill to snorkel the 570, couldn't see in there with my eye!!!!!

Post a pic. I believe the "rail" you speak of is not the actual seat rail, it's a plastic square tube just for intakes to be routed in. If that's the case drill away. Don't matter where

its the steel rail behind the seat that the intake goes too then draws from the outside, has little slats that i believe has a prefilter in it. wondering if it is open from side to side thanks

Pretty sure it has a divider between the two intakes...I'm sure Polaris wouldn't want the clutch intake starving the engine intake for air!

If you look close, you will see daylight straight through. I was trying to come up with a way to snorkle out the drivers side when I noticed that.

So Polaris is actually drawing engine intake and clutch intake from the same air source? I know it is open on each end but this sounds like a fairly stupid idea! Especially since the clutch intake and engine intake tap into the seat rail fairly close to each other on one side! At high RPMs the clutch intake will "suck" a rather huge amount of air right at the point when the engine needs a lot of air! It probably isn't an issue but just seems like a ridiculous idea!

now you've got me curious! I have to go out to the Ranger and take a look!

On my 2014 ranger 570 crew you can sees daylight if you look from one side of the ranger to the other through the rail. There is a block off that blocks probably 90 percent of the square tubing, but the top is open.

OK, now I am confused! Looked this up on Polaris' parts list, it shows the pre-filter on just one side of the square intake tube with 1 part "required", and 2 "panel louvers", one for each end of the intake tube, SO, if there is no divider in the square tube between the two intakes, it means there is a pre-filter on the drives side of the tube and nothing on the passenger side to filter the air for either intake! This doesn't make sense!
So I HAD to check this out on my own 570, after a quick look it turns out I DO have pre-filters on both sides AND it seems that the center of the square tube IS blocked on mine! I cannot see through the tube! Going to dig into this a bit deeper tomorrow when I have the garage heated up and more time.

Anyone try to snorkle the 570 from the square seat rail yet? I run my back panel year round so I can't use the "traditional" snorkle method....

Clint1485, I know this has been discussed here before; if you're referring specifically to the idea of running a 2x2" pvc coupling/converter and routing your snorkel against the outside of your roll cage think about this, by doing so, your snorkel will now be the most protruding piece of equipment on your rig (unless you have outside, rear-view mirrors); thereby leaving it highly susceptible to damage from low lying tree limbs, other quads, etc. With that in mind, I could not reccomend this idea...

I was inspecting my 2014 570 the other night, and it only has the intake for the engine going to the 2x2 tube with no divider, the clutch intake doesn't go into it. Also, I only have a prefilter on the drivers side. Is this all correct, or did my dealer not get everything installed like it should've been?

Your air box intake setup sounds same as mine but if your clutch intake doesn't go into the square frame, where does it go? Because as you describe, my clutch intake does go into that frame and does have a divider.

That all said, i am currently in the process of snorkelling my machine and am finding out how poor the stock setup really is. Not just for water potential but mostly dust.

The clutch intake is just cutoff right behind the cab. I talked to my dealer this afternoon and asked him, he said it didn't go into it nor was there suppose to be another prefilter on the passenger side. I told him to get me another prefilter to put in it, for 6 bucks it won't hurt anything. When I pulled the side louvers off I can see all the way through, no divider. Let me know how the snorkel comes out, I want one for dust control also. My problem is I have an Armor Tech cab, which is all metal, and I really don't want to have to cut the rear panel. It seems like it would be simple enough to do it out where the intake grills are on the 2x2 tubing. I'm going to look into doing one out of metal tubing so it'll be somewhat protected.

The dealer is correct that there is no prefilter on the passenger side, but like you, I did order another prefilter and put one in there.

There should be a welded 2" round opening under the square frame where the clutch intake should be going into. If I hadn't taken my intakes apart already I would have taken a picture for you to show your dealer. I do have the divider in so I can get you a pic of that if needed.

I also have a cab enclosure, albeit poly, and that's why I'm doing this snorkel myself so I can keep my rear panel with minimal cutting. I'm getting close to finishing my snorkel and I'm confident I can create it without much interference to my rear panel. I will show when I'm done

It is puzzling that similar models of the 2014, 570 vary so much in how the intake air is handled! Some have a baffle between the two intakes in the intake/seat tube, some have no baffle, some have 2 pre-filters, some one and some none! And now we hear that some may not have the clutch intake connected at all! Why such a difference in assembly?
I do know that mine has the baffle and two pre-filters, (which I have actually replaced with larger pieces of foam filter media), and I have no issues with dust in the intake filter OR the clutch housing, so I'm happy!
Cheers
