The pictures explain the fix very good, but I can't figure out why the kit comes with two of the plug caps.

Not that it's a big deal.
But the plastic clutch intake barb (that the rubber hose mounts to are different sizes, 13'-14' (same), 15' is different (smaller), and both are oblong, so I'm not sure the T 250 plug will fit snugly into the 13'-14' clutch intake port and seal off. Not that it really has to seal though.
The plastic engine intake hose barb is the same 13'-15'.
Just looking at it from a design stand point.


SLIM, thank for posting this with the instructions!

I put this kit on my 2013 soon as it became available to keep water and dust entry out. I sealed the back panel off well too. Really helps with the amount of dirt the air intakes take in. The only noise i hear is when I really put the hammer down on the throttle and you hear a throaty sound which I really don 't mind.

What exactly is it for? I haven't seen any issues with mine. Is it something I need to worry about??

Michael, early on when the 900's hit the market folks were complaining about snow built up on the air intakes on the cab posts for the engine and the cvt. Water entry was another on going complaint. When folks went to wash their rangers not knowing they could fill the air box intakes with water until they went to start or move the ranger. I got the kit and blocked the air intakes for both sides. By rerouting the air intakes it helps control the dust entry into them as well.

Yep, finally snapped to the part number and searched that before your post, haha :shame: Found it on Gearhead, but was cheaper on fixmytoys. Picked up a rear view mirror too. Thanks!

Does anyone have a ball park price on this kit ....also is this restricting the air flow? Can it be left on year round or just strictly for winter? I spend alot of time on the lake ice fishing and with all the snow we have gotten this season , I've had to stop and clean off the filter entrance' on the cab post repeatedly .

My kit was $38.00 + tax from my dealer, yes it will fit the 570 full size, the owner of the dealership was working counter when I picked up this kit he said why do you need a snow filter in Texas so we opened box and his eyes lit up! I'm ordering me one of those my wife washed my crew and filled up intake and belt box last weekend! I just don't really know about cutting that big filter block in half and stuffing in the belt intake I'm thinking it will be less air flow and a 10 mile ride at 30 mph belt may get warm any one think this might be a problem?

No water can pour rite in there. And snow will build up and block off. Here in Texas for me it's more the fine dust like talcum powder in intake boxes in side my cab is close to dust free.

JMO, polaris has used the coarse filter on the clutch for many years. The filters open cell/coarse construction may inhibit air flow a little, but I do not think it is enough to cause you a real problem. Be sure and remove it through out the year and clean it, to maintain maximum air flow, if you leave it in. And you get the added bonus of reduced dust in the clutch housing.

Ken,
I appreciate the info, I just figured out to why my ranger ran so slow coming home from the swamp sunday. Both of my vents were covered in mud, cleaned them and it runs great! I could def see where that kit would help. Thanks man
