    Cool CVT Filter

    Some of the ground I ride out here in AZ. is real dry dusty dirty running.In these conditions I was thinking about installing a filter on the cvt inlet?Being new to these mach.was looking for some input on this.I have read pros and cons. Any of you guys have a thought on these filters?If you maintain the filter and keep it clean I don't see it causing overheating problems.

    From my experience I would not use one . They plug too fast in dusty conditions and cause more problems than without. The cvt needs air or you'll eat up the belt real quick

    I have installed a 3" donaldson hd type air-filter assy on my 800 hisun,using only the large paper (primary) filter,with a 4" inline fan between the filter and the inlet to the cvt's and it works very well.i have not had to clean the cvt's in over 500 miles.you ( have to have the fan drawing air from filter, pushing it into the cvt's ) with this setup you are flowing way more cfm than the cv flows,( at wot ). We also installed a 3.5" fan on a kymco uxv500 w/4"fan inline,2 years ago.we plug it apart after 1 year running to see what we had and found it cleasn enough i install it on the 800 hisun.(well worth doing in dry dusty area.)

    It would be great if you guys would post some pics of your work.

    I installed an AllStar Air Duct Fan on the CVT exhaust vent and I wondered if I should add a filter to the CVT intake vent???

    We installed a HD-Donaldson #G070020 at the front of unit( under the hood ) and placed a 4" inline blower as to pulling air from a/filter and pushing it into cv cover and used the exhaust off cv cover to cool down exhaust/engine compartment. Filtered air into the converters are a must for hisun and odes so that the belt DOES NOT get too hot AND DIRT don't cause you to have to service the converters nearly as often.If you do the filter system, you will seen a difference.

    Now I'm wondering if I should allow the CVT exhausted air to blow onto the headers instead of out the back, I will leave it the way I have and once I get the engine good and hot on the next ride I'll check this exhaust air temp and if it isn't that hot I may let it blow onto the motor and move more air there.

    I would think any kind of air that you could move around would aid in cooling the engine.

    Hey, STIHLMAN I'm interested in this HD-Donaldson #G070020 filter setup, any chance you could post some pics of where it is mounted and how you connected it to the CVT???
    Yeah 4getful2, I guess I wasn't really thinking about getting more out of this Allstar duct fan, I did think about adding another one, but now I'm thinking I'll route it to blow onto the front header pipe and push more air to the rear of the engine. Doe!
    These Allstar fans blow 170 CFM's with a 3amp 12v connection.
