Most 270 kits don't come with headers, but use the original manifold which tends to crack at the welds over time. With the original exhaust setup you shouldn't have afr issues. I recommend MCX steel exhaust side vent. I used plastic vents which melted.
My tank melted likely because the header shield had a crack. Got that welded together. I didn't get to try a turbo wrap before I sold it. I think it's better with a shield over it to let the turbo heat transfer. As long as you have an uncracked header shield you should be good.
Never got that afr gauge I ordered from MCX. Ended up grabbing my grinder and cutting a big hole in the aftermarket sidevent. My new Sidewinder has a heat shield over the turbo and a heat wrap hanging below that next to the exhaust can, works like a charm. Dealer told me the orange color is...
On bigger sleds I usually lock the brake, then jam a key with adequate length between top of primary and center/bottom of secondary. Take care not to place it on sharp/weak parts. Not sure how the smaller ones look.
I meant to say oil hose, not fuel hose! I installed a gas hose that withstands high temps and is made from a substance that works well for oil. I'm thinking the original ROV won't fail. Btw it took a lot of force to turn the hose connector towards exhaust but definitely possible.
Tired of getting oil in the intake, so I'm definitely bypassing it. But I will keep my heated ROV, since I'm actively throwing it around as a 2-stroke. If the hose before ROV freezes, then I'm deleting the ROV and installing a better oil tank seal.
Turned the pipe towards exhaust side...
You don't see a lot of youtubers in the US/Canada on 4-stroke MTX's.
It's way more popular here in Scandinavia. We don't get as much snow as you do, but on this side of the lake we would be happy to get stuck.
I think most would pick a 2-stroke over an XTX for off-trail. But personally I...
I've ordered a Lazer Linear 6 Elite (500 gr), it has 4050lm and the spread/range ratio is good, not too focused. The OEM is too weak for me!
I plan to mod this sled as far as I can afford, I already made a list of things I want to change :sled2:
People have been asking how to do a headlight delete on a Sidewinder/Viper. Here's how I did mine recently.
This one has a 270 kit with cold air intake. It should be possible for stock ones too.
I've made a similar solution on a Viper with the same kit.
I took the hood off, then...
Anyone who have installed ascender covers on their Sidewinders? I recently had an Alpha and really liked the narrow chassis, great for sidehilling/carving through the snow. I'm considering swapping out the covers, only thing holding me back is the gorgeous look of the Sidewinder.
