Alright so been looking everywhere and can't seem to find the answer I'm lookin for 😂
Soo vent lines come up to my headlight pretty much but the BIG thing is the clutch housing vent .! Big vent whole about 2"x6-8" right under rear bumper. Now this is where all the water comes in for me !
Soo the question is has anyone installed a snorkel kit on a 2017 sportsman 850sp? Does it come with something to block that vent or will I be wasting money and still have a huge hole in the back that lets all the water in . To me doesn't make sense if they didn't send something like that but all descriptions and such say nothing about it !
Thanks in advance if anyone knows!

Check this guy out.


Doesn't really answer your question but he was able to install a stealth kit on '18 850SP and you can see that they ran a large air vent from the clutch housing. I would think that this needs to be done with any snorkel kit to ensure water tightness.

Yeah he said that the kit is very hard to install and require some modification, also theres plastic pipe we can see, I wish they would make a new kit I would buy it (for the 1000 model).

I’m with you guys. I would totally buy a kit for my ‘17 850Sp if they were designed properly, clean install and AVAILABLE.
