Air cleaner for CVT cooling intake.
This is the one part Yamaha forgot to put on from
the factory. Yamaha is only using a rain shield (if you
want to call it that) that protects the inlet of your CVT. This inlet is
located behind the drivers seat on your Rhino. It is an important inlet
as it allows cool air to be drawn into the CVT housing to help cool the
CVT. Unfortunately for many Yamaha Rhino owners, they learned about this only
after taking there Rhino to the sand dunes and coming home with a
damaged CVT. The factory rain shield is not enough protection for any
dirty, dusty or sandy off road conditions.
Using a UNI two stage filter you can in a matter
of minutes protect your wallet and your CVT from expensive repairs. The
unit fits right on the end of your snorkel tube and replaces the factory
rain shield. This tube is located right behind the driverís seat and
should only take about 5 minutes to install.
Not only should this always be used when playing
in the dunes (based upon our first hand experience) it's not a bad idea
to run this filter in all dirty, dusty situations.
Note: This filter should be cleaned and checked
just as often as your main intake filter needs servicing. With Uni's two stage design a pre filter is not required, it is built into this filter. For maximum protection use Uni filter oil on this filter.
