I got a 2003 Yamaha viper. I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a screen kit made for the forced air induction? Seems like every time i hit some deep snow the forced air induction fills up with snow.
there used to be a company making pre-filters for the airbox but the name slips me at this time. i have been using a product from home depot called "pet screen". its about $20 for a 4' x 7' roll. i use it as a backer to the oem vent screens and it really blocks the snow, but allows air. dont see why a product as such couldnt be reto-fitted into the cowl induction.
Yea i don't know why Yamaha never put screens there. Any snow that hits the hood goes in the forced air. Thanks for the info, i was thinking of making some screens for it but saw some pictures of vipers with them online. Didn't know if a place made them for sure.
theres alot of extra steam made under the hood with the addition of pipes when you hit the powder. not only from the intake but from the other vents in the hood as well. theres a few tricks you can do to reduce this effect if you ride powder alot.
would any of you have pics of the opening that would allow air to the air box mine are blocked off and its a short track , I was scratching my head why they would hace forced air induction on it when its a dead end lol.
Have 96 vmax, idles about 1500, however if on a stand the clutch is engaging and the track is slowly turning, I’m guessing/hoping it’s a simple adjustment, however I’m not sure where to start. The belt is fairly new and my backup belt ( doing the same is brand new). Any help would be appreciate.
last winter lost lights and dash. Sled would barely run. Not electric start. Think I found regulator behind plastic below recoil starter handle. In MD and no shops within 150 miles. Any help is appreciated. Thanks Rick
I turn the key and nothing. No click no nothing. I just replaced the relay thinking that was the issue but it wasn't. When the relay was off I hooked a jumper to the ground and the positive going to the starter and it started. It starts and runs fine when I start it with starting fluid. There is...
I have a 08 vector that has always had the normal carb prime problems at first of year start up. This year no luck. Pulled both lines from tank, blew thru them easily and sucked up gas easily so filters are clear. Carbs suck in when putting hand over them and cranking engine. There is zero...
Just picked up this sled a few days ago and can't wait to get out for a ride. In the mean time there are a couple issues I'd like to address. The sled starts on second pull which is no problem for me but I think my wife may struggle to pull start. considering that, and also the possibility of...
