2019 850/1000 Touring air box mod.
So my buddy swamped my brand new 2019 Sportsman 850 Touring SP with 7.6 hours on the machine. Broke a piston, bent a rod, etc, it’s toast. ANYWAYS, while I’m waiting for my 1000 XP engine to arrive (I got a good deal on a used 2018 1000 XP engine) I decided to open up the air box since the original inlet was ridiculously small.
I’m going to use an Outerwears pre filter sheet, this custom flange I made, and some sealant to make a water repellant air box lid.
I eyeballed everything so it didn’t turn out “perfect” and I may still just use this original as a template to make a nicer one out of some sheet metal instead of this 1/8” x 1/2” flat bar.
Will post more pics when I receive the pre filter and finish it.
