I was thinking replacing my airbox on my 900 switchback with a timbersled air filter kit would be a good idea. Better airflow around the clutches. A friend of mine thinks it is a bad idea - he said you need to remap the fuel system and sucking in hot air from the engine compartment will hinder performance. What are the pros/cons of going with a filter instead of an airbox? Thanks.

Great idea. The guy I bought my pro x from did it. He said he lowered under hood temps, lost weight and performs well.

Go to www.hardcoresledder.com and look uo polaris9500.

The airbox on my sled is removable and covers the clutches - it is separate from the oil container. You need to take it out the airbox to change the belt. The kit I was looking at looks simple enough - I hope I can install it myslef.
