Keeping fresh air going into your UTV‘s engine is about as important a consideration as you can have on any machine. The unpredictable silt, dust, debris and sheer amount of dirt that goes into a modern Sport UTV’s air chamber can be quite devastating to its performance.
The folks at S&B Filters take a whole lot of pride in building their “particle separator” that helps eliminates 94% of the dust before it enters the engine’s stock air filter. The results of this can be readily seen on the filter that was on Kristen Matlocks’ Polaris RZR at this years Baja 1000.
In spite of going through miles of endless silt beds, sand washes and just about every kind of dirt you can imagine. Kristen’s air filter was still drawing in crystal clean air into the motor using her S&B Particle Separator to keep the airbox clean.
We are big believers in the particle separators effectiveness and Kristen Matlock’s comments only confirm our earlier observations. The folks at S&B make filters for most models, as well as “Cold Air” intakes for pickup trucks. They also carry a wide variety of Air Intakes, including K&N, stock, mod and other intake air systems including filter wraps and cleaning kits. For more information click here.
