    Cooling Vents

    Here's Some Pictures Of New Cooling Vents For My Rxp.

    They Are Used On Snowmobiles To Remove Unwanted Heat So I Thought, Why Not On My Rxp. I Measured For Some Vents And Had Them Made.

    What Do You Think?

    Jerry Thought They Looked Good And Will Be Talking To Jon The Guy Who Makes Them.

    I Ran Water Onto The Vent From A Tap And Only About 10% Went Thru The Fine Mesh Vent.

    Installed Using A Roto Zip.

    Very good idea. I like it alot. You may want to look at this product to not let in the water, but to let in the air.

    http://www.slp.cc/catalog.cfm?pageID...&productID=367

    Universal Powder Snow Prefilter Product Information: Part #DescriptionRetail 14-160 13 3/8" x 7 1/4"15.95 14-164 10 5/8" x 9 1/4"15.95 14-253 18" x 18"35.95 14-289 16" x 24"39.95These universal SLP Powder Snow Pre-Filters are perfect for custom intake areas on many modified sleds. They work extremely well in areas that are exposed to airborne powder snow. This unique filter repels snow and water yet passes air right through.

    I Have The Flow-rite Material And Several Flow-rite Vents From Slp On My Sled, They Are Excellent To Repell The Water But Tear Easily. The New Thing With Sleds Is This Mesh Material.

    You Can Get The Vents With The Flow-rite Material, But Costly And It Deteriorates With The Uv Rays And Not As Strong.

    If You Want The Flow-rite Material, The Maker Of The Vent Will Put It On But Suggests Covering It With A Regular Mesh For Protection.

    A company called Speedwerx makes covers with a stuff called Frog Skin. I know it works well we use it on our race sleds.

    I've been looking for a way to mount speakers inside without seeing them from the outside, and this just might work, plus they look great.

    I am looking for prefilter like Frogzskin or SLP stuff but on a linear roll (bulk) @ a reasonable cost.

    Anyone know of a supplier that has it any help would be greatly appreciated
